    Hi,

    i have several railcars from Kibri and would like to replace the plastic wheels by RP25 wheels, does anyone knows which wheels will fit the models?

    Thanks

    not knowing Kibri equipment i would replace the wheel sets (wheels and axles) not just the wheels, would think and good wheel sets would fit them.

    Not so simple. Before you order new wheelsets, take out the Kibri units and measure the distance over the axle ends. Most US gear is 26mm, most European is 24.8mm, though some are smaller.
