For wire wheels, adapters and spinners I used Orson Engineering near Birmingham. If you go to the general chat forum they have a thread titles who needs splined hubs.

I actually got my wheels from eBay really cheap because someone listed them without a picture as Astin Wheels rather than Aston Martin wire wheels. A lucky find for me!

We were looking at wire wheels but they are 1,307 for the four without tyres!
THe spinners were ebay from the states, spacers rear only and wheels 8 x 15 mate. Car lowered 40mm

I know the car is sold now but it would be a huge help if you could please let me know where you got the wheels and spacers - would really appreciate it!

Thanks,

Default Mmmmmm itchy!

Hi all! Think its time to start a new project. Im tempted by another 250 but am interested in hearing about new developments coming out of Tribute. Any suggestions updates guys? (without trawling every thread as Im lazy!)

Also a while ago I saw a good thread on here of an overseas mx250 in green with a great interior. Can anyone tell me what thread/who that is?

Hammy, build a 250SWB on a Z3. Easier and quicker than the MX250. 90% bolt on. As they say on Top Gear "what could possibly go wrong?".
