Def Models offers a set of sagged wheels for the US LAV-25 Piranha.
This set is intended for Trumpeter kit and has replacements for the eight road wheels plus the spare one.

They represent Michelin XL tires and, unlike the original, are slightly sagged as you would expect from a vehicle weighting more than 12 Tons. Note that there are different wheels for each side, so the thread points to the right direction in both cases.

The set comes also with Easy Mask, which allows masking the wheel for painting starting by either the rim or the tire.

DEF wheels almost always make me want to get the kit to attach them to. :-D Especially the modern sets always seem great to me!

So what is the difference with the already existing wheel sets for the LAV-25?

If I understood their FB post correctly, this one allows you to have the tread point forward on both sides. The other sets out apparently only have one tread direction

Most of the ones on the market depict the wider, later XML tire which was omnidirectional. These are the earlier, narrow directional tires as originally used on LAV's. Jim

I can't edit anymore but here's a photo showing the difference: Jim

Can we use these on Canadian-service LAVs?
NOV 06, 2016 - 01:02 PM
Nope. You can use them on AVGP 6x6 Early (Grizzly, Cougar, Husky) though. But you'll have an extra pair of front wheels left over.
