JBW 13" Superlight wheels

Evening all,

Was messaging John Brown Wheels earlier asking when he was going to have the classic ford black superlight wheel sets back in stock and he mentioned he had some seconds with minor paint flaws available - so he listed them up for me.

I bought 1 set - but there is another set available if anybody is interested :-

Cheers
Tony

Gutted they won’t fit a Sierra based kit.

Yeah ET7 are too far out for me too

What's brake clearance like on these?

I bought a set of Minilights ages ago and not a sniff they would clear sierra front or rear brakes,very thick wheel.

Using an online calculator they would stick out a further 57mm

That doesn't sound right? For them to poke out 57mm further than they are now, your current wheels would have to be ET +50 as the super lights are ET -7

What ET are your current wheels?

Edit - Unless you have currently got 5.5 or 6J wheels?

I think they would fit an Escort/Cortina based car - like mine

Does anyone know how light a superlight 13" wheel is??
