I was under the impression that the multi hole SpeedSter wheels were supplied by a UK company, but I've discovered that they may not be.
I have a set of 4 wheels, in black, from Shooter and looking inside the rime we discovered they are made in Italy by Fondmetal.
I do not see them on their website, so I guess that they are a special, produced for Morgan.

The 18" wheels will get Mud and Snow tyres for the winter.
Photo to follow.

But on reflection it looks as if it has lost a hubcap.

Are the Fondmetal Morgan wheels forged or cast I wonder. The Rays wheels on the website appear to be cast. I thought the Aeromax ones where forged.

I know the wheels that Rimstock made for my S4 were forged

Blimey, for the price I'd want the real deal, not forgeries.
