Thanks Jag. I have seen some more photos and it looks like they are MWS Dunlopís as they have markings on them with the Dunlop logo and then x516 which I assume is cross laced and the spoke sizing?. The seller says they were fitted to a Healey replica but before that no idea. Iíll see what I can dig out but I am thinking they might end up being too big a risk. Thanks for your help so far tho. Cheers

516 I think is the wheel model. Send MWS an email and they will advise you.
My wheels had been discontinued but they keep all the details and were happy to give me all the details including pad and et.
What was the Healy replica based on?
I would imagine a very limited market for the wheels, get the details and then make a lowing offer.

I found that a lot of their older wheels aren't on the website, so drop them an email

Hi Mazda raz, yup did have a look through thanks for that. They look to do only 100 spoke wheels which isnít what I am looking for. 72 spoke is my end goal. The 100 spoke are too American pimp mobile for me! Cheers tho.

Hi jag. I will do. The seller is a bit confused, asked him some key questions and he struggled. I am sure they are Dunlop MWS, but the auction on them finishes in the next hour, so the plan is to ask the questions from MWS and if they get relisted try to work out with the seller what they really are and if they work. Cheers.
