    An update: I've heard from Gianluca at Ostorero. They are closed because of COVID19, but can provide replacements when they get back to work. Thanks everyone for the helpful responses.

    The inserts for the Ostorero cars are 13mm diameter for the fronts and 15mm for the rears

    ^^^ Yes - I did make those but they fit 15mm wheels..... (Thank you for pointing them out!!)
    Those Ostorero wheels are more like a 16 or 17mm wheel if memory serves

    I have an Ostorero kit someplace. I could probably scale up that insert to fit or part with the inserts. I'll try to respond back unless you found another solution....

    New 15mm 3D printed wheel inserts now available at our dealers.
    These fit CB Design and Slot.it 15mm insert wheel types.
    Insert 12 and 14 also work with our 2 and 3 ear knock off for inserts.
    Maybe SCC slot car corner or cloverleaf

    Bob and Chris - the Ostorero wheels need bigger inserts than the ones Dart/RS sells.
    I have sent you a message Bob

    cheers
    David

    PS nice car Chris - what is the source of the body?

    Need wheel inserts for Ostorero Watson

    I was lucky enough to pick up a very nice used Ostorero Watson as part of a collection. Unfortunately, only one of the four wheel inserts is still intact. Does anyone know where I could procure a replacement set of wheel inserts - I'd prefer to find ones to match the original shown here.

    Thanks,
    Bob
