SOLD Spyder Zetec Minilite wheels and tyres

PostPost by: Spyder fan » Thu Jan 21, 2016 12:38 pm


I have a full set of 4 genuine Minilite Sport 14x6 alloy wheels complete with Yokohama C Drive 2 185/65/14 tyres. The wheels were acid etch primed and painted in gun metal finish 2 1/2 years ago and are in very smart undamaged condition. The tyres were fitted at the same time and have very little wear with at least 6mm of tread on all tyres.

The wheels are a Classic magnesium pattern that are reproduced in alloy to special order only, normally Minilite require a batch order of 3 sets of wheels to do this, so they are quite rare and very 1960's period looking.

If you have a Spyder converted car with the Ford hubs or are building a car with ford hubs, these will bolt straight on and are the correct offset, the tyre profile is 65 and this gives the closest correct diameter of 596mm (original +2 tyres are 601mm). The common mistake is to fit 60 profile tyres which are too short and give the appearance the car is riding too high when you have the suspension set correctly.

These wheels will also fit to any 7 or Westfield that uses the ford uprights. They are 108x4PCD

I would like ?400 for the wheels and tyres, I will consider just selling the wheels for ?300. I'm located in Tunbridge Wells Kent (UK) if you want to collect, or postage is ?25 via UK mail courier.

I'm not desperate to part with these, if they don't sell I will put them back into storage for a future project, I don't need the cash or the room.

Please PM me with any questions or for my contact details.
