The steel wheels on this car are particularly nice. Anyone know what they are? Maybe German 'winter tyre' rims?
Wire wheels do look great but, as many of the Pembleton owners have found, they can mess up the handling big time because of the increase in unsprung weight - especially if you are having to use an adapter rather than an original splined hub. (Could be a good excuse not to be persuaded by the SWMBO )
