I would say that the Camaro and the Rover tyres are the same

I emailed RVREVO one of our older members and a good friend who has been away for some time. He is well and sent me an email on the Golden Jacks.
Golden Jacks.
All the wheels are different.
Mini Marcos is the Smallest.
Corvette is the Widest.
Rolls-Royce is the Largest.
Camaro, Toronado and Hillman Hunter are same size.
Camaro and Toronado are same wheels.



Forgot to add the Rover.

Further to that are the sizes that Corky already provided

Ok, Camaro, Hunter, Toronado, Rover and Corvette are 15mm
Marcos is 12mm
Rolls-Royce is 17mm

<p>To me, Camaro and Toronado wheels are the same. Corgi even never offered different spare wheels for these cars. Before I take some pics, here are a pair I made a long time ago. The first is showing all Corgi spare wheels packs.

<p>Sorry the second pictures isn't worth nothing in this topic.</p>

Great info here guys. Nice work. AS you have already discussed, Some model will be able to interchange their removable wheels but they did originally come with their own size and/or hub design

Except Camaro and Toronado.

I can assure you, for having several copies in my hand and still in my cabinet they came with the same wheels.

As spare wheels were complet (i.e. tyre + hub), I can't imagine a children having lost one of his Camaro wheel having from Corgi a different one from the 3 each others.

Yes, those two were the same, thank you.
Corgi should have released other styles of spare wheels so you could custom your car.

What's amazing me is that the packs were containing 12 wheels !
12 !
I suppose that dealers ordered some and then retailed them one by one.

I have a few of these packs as well and it never occurred to me why 12. Very good point Corky.
