Agree not cheap, but I am finnding anything on ebay that suits, and also come in variety of offsets that may allow not using spacers.

Default Slot Mags

Snipped up for a 100 notes, wondered if they would look too hot rod if powder coated in anthralite. Might suit Chis's pick up though...... mind you adaptors will cost 3 time what the wheels did.....

Might be worth getting a quote from machine shop to relocate the stud holes.

Nice. I used to have a set on a TR7. Otherwise known as Wolfrace super slots. Like Froggy says, just get them redrilled.

No, 4x108 but as stated I could just get them redrilled.

For the money I am quite happy, although I have a hankering for some wire wheels from MWS

Why not use a floating/wobble bolt?

You can get adapters for those no need to re drill.

You will need spacers on the rear anyway, so use 1 to 2" spacer/ adaptor there, the on the front no spacers needed so redrill the front two. You have them drilled in-between the existing holes. Mind you 108 is Ford, and you could just sell them on, double your money, and buy some of the correct size!

Wobble bolts would not work offset is too differant, and I actually dont like the thought of using them.

Tony - I would think I could get them redrilled for far less then 2 sets of adaptors. I think adaptors are 150 per pair. So refurb and redrilled will probably be cheaper, and potentiall i can get the original holes filled and dressed at the same time.

Slot mags are actually cool again after years of being cast aside in favour of more modern designs. They are classic now. Get the drilled/spaced/coated and get them on your MX5

Anyone know of a good machine shop in the Kent area that could fill and redrill these wheels?
