Folks

Thinking of getting 'trick' set of wheels for The Captain ( 96 +4 ) Currently its on the Morgan alloys and although I like them, I want to have a change.
Looking at polished alloys with maybe a splash of black or even red might be cool.

What I know about wheels you can write on a stamp. So, Were to buy, decent make etc etc

Anyone know the PCD of Morgan alloys ?

Anybody got any none standard alloys ? Any example images would be fabulous, darlings.

Thank you

Some absolute beauties here:

If you ignore some of the more 'bling' styles they remake some of the more classic looking stuff.

I agree and MMC is a client someone told me. The „Billet 46“ is the wheel which is ordered by MMC for the last BMW Plus 8 Speedster with round holes (around the rim edge) as well as for the 80s anniversary 4/4 (squared holes). In different size it looks completely different. Of course they have some other styles. The wheels of the ARP4 were also made by Image Wheels.
If you are interested it is best to send them a spare wheel to get the correct data and size of the wheels. Or someone knows it precisely.

Of course Image Wheels is just an example and there should be other companies. Or you find a cool looking classic existent wheel with the right dimensions.

Alloys painted in body colour. Was a factory option when I ordered the car last year.
I still like it.

I like those as well. I am trying to work out their pricing if you already had knockoff wire wheels. Say 15 inch by 6 inch as standard for the Plus 4 the wheels are £285 each or £1140 for a set of 4, but what from the Extras is required to get them to fit? Would I need STEEL CENTRELOCK CONVERSION HUBS WITH ALUMINIUM NUTS/SPINNERS SET OF 4 for £1,050 or maybe ALUMINIUM CENTRELOCK CONVERSION HUBS WITH ALUMINIUM NUTS/SPINNERS SET OF 4 for £1,250 meaning to get the wheels to fit costs more than the actual wheels?

I am still in the early stags of my MGB build and never actually cleaned wire wheels yet to know how bad it is, but I like the idea of those for winter and real wires for summer.

You can order them with either splined, 4 bolt or 5 bolt fittings.

The Stainless Steel wires on my +8 are as easy to clean as the alloys. The previous Chrome ones were a different story, so if you hear horror stories of hours with a toothbrush and Auto Solvol that will be for Chrome!

I have a set of the Speedster type wheels in black taken off my S5 Aero if anyone is looking for a set!

Thanks, so hopefully I will not have any issues. I think I decided on Stainless Steel wires reading Dave's book.
