  Designed for Issues 3, 9, 13 and 15 of the Build the DeLorean Time Machine by Eaglemoss. View build planner

These magnetic wheel caps have been specially designed to replace the plastic caps supplied with the 1:8 Eaglemoss DeLorean Time Machine.

They give you quick easy access to the screws for when you need to remove the wheels.

Constructed from solid, rare earth neodymium, each magnet is produced to the highest standard with metallic silver print and durable black epoxy coating. These magnets both look and function better than their plastic counterparts, an essential mod for your DeLorean!

Other than removing the existing plastic caps if you’ve already installed them, there is no setup or pre-installation required for this DeLorean mod. The wheel caps are immediately compatible with your model and will work right out of the box.

They are also ‘hover-mode’ compatible, meaning they won’t fall out if you choose to display your model with the wheels down.

What’s included:

  • 5 x Magnetic wheel caps (4 + 1 spare)
  • 1 x Magnetic tab (for removing the magnetic wheel caps)
  • 1 x Illustrated set of instructions

Features:

  • DMC logo printed on both sides to allow for likelihood of different magnetic poles behind each wheel
  • Hover-mode compatible
  • Constructed from solid, rare earth neodymium
  • Designed to fit the wheel hubs perfectly
  • Metallic silver print and durable black epoxy coating

Why and when would I need these?

There are a number of reasons why you may find yourself needing to remove the wheel caps, such as for tightening the wheels or removing for repairs.

Eaglemoss also provide some fantastic alternative wheels for this model, such as the ‘white wall tyres’ and ‘train track wheels’. Unfortunately, whilst these are great additions to the build, Eaglemoss provide no method of removing the plastic wheel caps once installed, making them practically impossible to swap over. With these magnetic wheel cap mods you will be able to easily swap between all variations of wheels, damage-free!

These magnetic wheel caps also serve as great replacements for already damaged or misplaced wheel caps.

How can I remove the plastic wheel caps if I’ve already installed them?

Removal of the plastic wheel caps is a straightforward, simple process and is fully detailed in the instructions provided.

Magnet safety

Keep out of reach of children.

Important: Neodymium magnets are much stronger than ordinary magnets and pose a danger to children, heart pacemakers and magnetically sensitive items. Before using these magnets, please refer to the included ‘Magnet Safety’ insert regarding the safe use and storage of your magnets.

All other model parts and accessories shown in the photos outside of the ‘What’s included’ list above are not included and are shown purely for demonstration and application purposes.

    Sehr gut verarbeitet und sehr gute Qualität. Must have für alle die mal die Reifen wechseln möchten.

    First of all these mods not only over exceeded my expectations (which were pretty high to begin with)
    But the presentation was outstanding. Imagine being a little kid and having those outlandish dreamy expectations and having them met with literally gummy bears on top. The step-by-step easy to follow instructions were more that I could’ve asked for. I will always get everything Mike Lane has to offer for each build that I do.

    If you like to swap out your model from being road ready to on the rails then you will need this!

    Indispensable. Look exactly perfect, fit perfectly and have a really strong magnet to keep them in with an ideal tool to remove. Cannot fault them.

    A great mod. If you plan on changing up your wheels for the white walls or the train wheels then back you need this mod or you will damage you DMC center caps and rims.
    Excellent work Mike!!!

    Beautifully made, easy to fit. If you're going to be swapping wheels or need to remove the wheels during your build these are "must haves", as prising the stock wheel caps out of the wheel centre will damage either the cap or the wheel.

    The wheel caps work great. Too bad Eaglemoss didn't foresee this issue with changing out the tires. These wheel caps look great and function really well.

    Another absolute must have item especially if you are wanting to change the wheels easily without causing damage to gain access to the screws.
    Well done mike on another fantastic product keep up the good work 👍
