Anyone here used this wheel set from Voyage, please? I'm looking to put these onto a Hobbyboss Achzarit, and wanted to check for quality / suitability first.

Thanks,

Kylie

Those wheels have weird PE disc aproach, otherwise they look like resin copies from Tamiya T-55A set with raised ribs on tyres instead of incorrectly shown grooves.
There are numerous other options like Miniarm, DEF and this one with two types of road wheels OOB:

What is wrong with OOB wheels in your kit?

Thanks for that; I don't like the separate rubber rings in the kit, and want to go with resin wheels for ease of painting.

I like the look of the miniarm ones, and they're in stock at hobbyeasy as well.

Cheers,

Kylie

You are welcome!
Here is how the Miniarm ones look like in real life:
