Part of my ongoing effort to document parts and packaging that Tamiya produced throughout the 90's and early 2000's

The 8-spoke wheels are among my favorite 1/10 wheels Tamiya has produced -- I think they're a really good scale representation of the Minilite-style wheels that are associated with Mini Coopers

Tamiya offered this design with the very first M-chassis, the M01 Rover Mini Cooper, and the wheels seen very many other color variants over the last 25 years (a quarter-century!!!)
