The 6 Ford Wheels will be turned into a Ford wheel pack at some point
along with some more wheels to choose from, but for now, they live in here.
All my wheel packs will live together here on this page,
ALL wheels are interchangeable, as long as you have the latest versions of all the packs.
(they all use textures from "chong.txd", so as long as you have that and they are all linked to it, it should work fine)
To swap the wheels around, just swap the names of the .dff files
FIRST MAKE A BACKUP of DATA folder and MODELS folder, just in case it goes wrong...
you MUST follow ALL of the instructions or it WILL not work!
Don't day i didn't warn you.
if you get really stuck, send me an email and i will try to help.
Using SPARK [or IMGtool2] carefully DELETE the following 17 files in GTA3.img:
next add my 18 files:
chong.txd - THIS IS THE TEXTURE FILE FOR ALL MY WHEELS it is very important!
[Rebuild archive if using imgtool2. If using Spark, save and close]
-> You are NOT FINISHED YET! now the hard bit:
Using notepad, open "veh_mods.ide" look in your san andreas folder, inside "data\maps\veh_mods".
Find these lines [using number at beginning] [take care, they are not all together in one lump]
replace the original lines with these lines (look at the number at the beginning of each line - there are 17 lines to replace)

explanation: this bit links my wheel.dffs to "chong.txd":
chong.txd is the file that contains ALL my wheels textures.
without it, they will appear completely white.
instead of replacing the whole lines, you could just replace the word "vehicle" with the word "chong" at the end of each wheel line.
if you are not sure, just replace the original lines with mine, as explained above,
either way, take care not to change anything else in the file...
if you do not add these lines, the wheels will all be white with NO textures!
i do plan to release more wheels for this pack, they will all be interchangeable, as well as interchangeable between packs - as long as you have the latest "chong.txd" file
just edit the names of the dff files if you need to rearrange them - they all link to chong.txd so it should be easy to swap them around.
