Wanted - 14” wheels

Hi all,

I want to make my McSorley look a little old school. I currently have XR4i pepperpot wheels which don’t really suit.

What I would like is a set of 14” 5.5j wheels - I have nearly new tyres. I am thinking minilite style or steel wheels (with circular holes) and go for the Caterham 160 look and also paint them to look like Dunlop racing wheels.

I have ET41 wheels at the moment which work well but all things considered!

I did look at the minilite style Ka alloys but they are only 5j and if I have to but new tyres I might as well but a brand new set of alloys!!

Thanks

JC

I have a set (plus spare) of Team Dynamics Qualifiers. They are 6J though with an ET of 38. They have tyres (185x60R14) on them, but they need replacing.

Here's a picture of them on my car



I've replaced them with 13s...

I have a set of evolution 4 spokes I'm considering selling. They have some old R888 rubber on that I was using as spare.

6J and not great cosmetically.

I’d be interested in seeing a pic of the evolution wheels if you have any?

Sounds like the old school style I’m looking for

Check my archive there are some pics with them fitted to my car. Not high detail pics, but you get a chance to appreciate that they are gloss black with polished outers.

The photos don't get across that they need a refurb to be respectable.

If you have a set of lightweight ish 13" 7J I would be willing to do a deal?

Sorry....no 13” wheels....just 15’s to possibly move on.

The revolution wheels would be just the sort of thing I am looking for if you are considering a sale though

Thanks for the email - looking for steels with circular holes! Picky, perhaps, but I have a particular look in mind if I go down the steels route!
