I have a general question for those of you who have already completed one of theses kits. The kit instructions call for mounting the wheel and tires at a certain point in time during the build process. However, they seem to indicate that the builder may defer that timing until later. Because the wheels and tires are as large as they are, is it easier to simply attach them as one of the final steps in the build process, or is it best to attach them when called for in the instructions?

Also, with the exception of the spare, am I correct to conclude that once assembled and before the knock offs are attached, all four wheels and tires are essentially interchangeable, meaning left/right and front/back.

Thanks in advance for any input.

You can fit the wheels whenever you wish and yes, all four are identical. The spare has a different tyre - unless that has been altered.
