+2 Alloy Wheels

PostPost by: JMH » Wed Mar 29, 2017 11:08 am

These are the 5 whels off my 1974 JPS

They have done 30k miles in total

When I got the car at 25k miles they were all black finished, I had them reconditoned by Motor Wheel Services.

i took the car off the road in 1987 and the wheels have been in storage since

During the restoration of the car we put on new Paul Matty Wheels ?150 each. These wheels were kept as my spare set, and also because they are not lacquered they have a used look that I sort of liked and it made the car look more authentic somehow. I have now sold my car and these are no longer needed

They have the originial finish unpainted centre caps. the black paint on 1 or 2 of the wheels is chipped and requires minimal touching up. I washed the wheels and have given the rims and spokes a hand polish with autoglym like i used to do every couple of weeks when thay were on the car.

The polished services come up well but have marks that you only get from using a car

4 off have the Dunlop SP Sports tyres (the made in GB variety) and the spare is a Avon Turbo Speed.

the location holes have minimal elongation

So the wheels are not new or immaculate but a very good used set

if there is any interest please send me a personal e mail

I can easily arrange transport using a car parts courier in the UK

I am in Aberdeen Scotland
