WTB: looking for a quick source to buy 8” or 10” (preferrably steel wheels to build up two sets of Bloomberg drive trucks for a 15” ga F unit. Anybody know where there are 16 of them sitting on a shelf?

Thanks,
Glenn

If you are building a scale set of trucks the overall size of a wheel including flanges is going to be 11 to 11.5 inches. I realize most don't build to scale in 15" as the size and weight can add up quick.

Thanks, yes I misspoke a bit. Actually Iam swamping out wheel sets between two sets of trucks and need a smaller set of wheels to go on the smaller scale pair of trucks...
