Good morning,

Has anyone in the uk a spare +2 steel wheel they are prepared to part with? I need a spare for my car.

Thanks in advance.

Did you see these on Ebay ? Might be worth a message to see if they'll part with a single.

I did, thanks, but I think they are elan wheels and I think the +2 is wider?

No, all are Plus 2. One pair advertised as such, the 4 are plus 2 aswell, although it doesn't say.so. They are wider than the baby Elan wheels.

the pair seem rather loosely welded in attempt to fix a serious case of cracking, I'm not sure that even a low speed I would not be nervous to drive that...

I have some spares but unfortunately probably not all that useful given that they are in San Diego.

Try to check out the classified ads all over the internet. Good luck finding it.

Hi David

Where are you based?

I have at least one (maybe more?) in the garage, but I’d like you to take a look at it/them first, as I’m unsure as to how well they will clean up.

I’m in North Lincolnshire
Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?

Plus 2S
