I think yours are the same size as mine Phil - 175/80/14.

I've got Uniroyal Rainexpert radials on standard MGB 4.5x14 60 spoke wires bought cheap and rusty from ebay, and refurbished by me.

As the wheels came from ebay -



Getting ready to get rid of the rust -



...and after I blasted them -



175/80/14 on the left compared to 175/70/14 I started with -



Fitted to the car -



Perfect size for the car imho -

Looking good Phil. What sort of power is it putting out - have you had it on the dyno yet?

Another great update . Thanks guys , this thread is probably my favourite thread on this forum as it truly embraces the whole Sammio ethos .

They are Hot Rod Specials , not high end kit offerings and for some reason Norfolk residents embrace that more than others .

Well done Phil , Barry and Towed .
