Default Wheels

I was the proud owner of a set of wire wheels of a MK2 E type Jag sorted out adaptors from Orson ( really helpful company ) but decided the track would be to wide for the look i am going for , so moved on to plan b , sold them and know buying a set of genuine Minilites to be fitted with 185/65/15 tyres , Geoff .

Hi Geoff

I like your wheel choice

Nick's car is being stripped down later this week, so your project will start a few weeks after that.

I have a cunning plan to create a very good likeness of the SWB......

Talk to you soon.

Afternoon the wires would have been at least 1 inch possibly a inch and a half further out each side at the front , never did try at the back but guess approx the same , the wires would be the better looking option but would be difficult because the Z3 hubs are positioned so far out , thanks for the comment re the Minilites , which i last used back in the 70s on MK1 and MK2 Escorts , Geoff .
