Here is something to definitely be on the lookout for.
Lamley Reader Nathan Forster-Green out of the UK sent over pics of this fantastic find at his local Smyth’s store:
Two new Hot Wheels 10-packs with the Datsun 240Z exclusive. Cool in and of itself, but what caught his attention was the Honda CRX down at the bottom:
Yep, wheel variation alert! A PR5 CRX instead of standard 5-spokes. He found two packs with the CRX, among several with 5-spokes. I am always fascinated by wheel variations, especially those found in 10-packs, and this is a great one.
So, let’s do some investigative work. Will we see these elsewhere? Obviously none of us have any idea, but be on the lookout. The UK gets 10-packs, unlike the US 9-packs, so maybe that is a factor. Then again, Nathan said many other 10-packs had the 5-spoke model. My guess is more will be found, but time will tell.
You better believe I will be looking.
Thanks Nathan for sharing!
UPDATE! After posting this, I learned of another PR5 CRX found in a 9-pack here in the US well over a month ago. Thanks David for letting me know!

I’ve already drilled mine apart and put them wheels on. Lol
Your welcome John, thanks for the great write up! Must be my best wheel vary find yet!
Thanks for the head’s up. I will be on the hunt for this variation. 👍
I like the standard 5-spokes better on the new CRX. It fits a lot better with the stock look of the car.
