1.Import the Vehicle (RX7).
2.Import the wheel.
3.Then go to Left View.
4.And Deselect chassis_dummy in the Nodes List.
5.So now you just have both wheels,stock and the new one.

7.And move the new wheel to the same place as the old wheel.Then go to Modify->Scale and click on the little Box next to it and choose Scale Geometry !!THIS STEP IS VERY IMPORTANT!!.
8.CTRL+Left Click on wheel,then a window appears.
9.Write on X,Y,Z 85.00 and then OK.
10.So the wheel is smaller,but it's too small,so we have to make it bigger.
11.Then Window appears again and write on X,Y,Z 103.00 .
12.So now wheel has almost same size as the old one.
13.Now go to Front View.
14.Now Move the wheel to same place as old one.
15-16.So now on same place as the old one.
17.Now go to Left View again.
18.So you see the wheel_rf_dummy is not right in the middle of the wheel.So we must move it too.
19.So now put it right on the middle,2 lines on the side brake disc will help you to find the right position.
20.But the Pivot of the wheel isn't same as the Dummy Pivot,so we must move the pivot too.
21.So go to Modify->Move and press the little box next to it,then click Move Pivot Only.
22.Then go the wheel.
23. CTRL+Left Click and move the pivot so it's same as dummy.
24.Also check it on the front,isn't right too.
