Late Plus 8

Is it possible to convert from a 5 stud wheel to the knock-on alloy wheels?

Are the splines the same as used with the wire wheels?

Yes they are, and yes it is.

Your previous Plus 8 was sold on by it's next owner minus the Lightweight alloys, he tried to sell them on here. He got a secondhand set of wires and had them sprayed black as I recall. He had a lot of work carried out on the car but didn't have it for long.

Yes but the brake calliper brackets on the stub axles are different...

Yeah I heard he sold it on. Great car that.

Not sure why you’d want to swap them for wires. That car looked perfect.

Who’s got it now, anyone on here?
