Dear Mr. Anspach:

The trucks come assembled with Kadee wheelsets (.110) and are
not offered with the Code 88 wheel tread at this time. The truck
sideframe castings, which are a pewter alloy, are soldered to the
truck bolster. I am sorry, but I am afraid there is no easy way to
change out the wheelset. I cannot recommend bending the sideframe
to remove and replace the wheelset as it may result in breakage of
the sideframe. If I can be of further assistance please let me
know. Thank you for your interest.

Are your trucks available with wheels with .088" wide treads, and if
not, are the trucks assembled in a manner that the wheel sets could
easily changed out?

Thank you so very much.
