I haven't seen this kit yet, but since the first AMT '49 was issued back in the sixties, I have picked several up, and built many over the years, and consider it a primo kit, no matter what components are in the updated version.
The wheels and tires are interchangeable with other AMT Trophy kits, it is fun to experiment and kitbash to get your individual model. I have a lot of interest in the whitewall slickes, on another car.
That is why modeling cars really appeals to me. I am a member of an IPMS chapter and the military guys build accurate historical models, but to me that is restrictive. I build cars like I would like to own a real one, or one that has inspired me from a book, tv film, movie or just seeing one tool around.
All I can say is, have fun
