    Super easy, a little pressure to one side and the old ones pop out, installation in the reverse move.

    On a side note, I tweeted ER about their wheels, they told be they were about to be released 4 months ago. They are promising a more prototypical profile front and back, I'd love to see it happen (soon).

    If they look anything like the HO wheels ER has shown at trainshows, they will be impressive. However, paraphrase Donald Sutherland in The Dirty Dozen, "Very pretty, but do they run?" The proof will be in the running.
