The original wheels are the nicest, by far. Find me a set that is straight and I will put them back at once. But that is the whole problem: finding a good set. The wheels were very low quality in the first place, now they are fourty year old low quality... They are just too flimsy and will wobble around like mad at speed. As long as you drive your car you need a replacement. Minilites are at least period style.

or try some milk bottle tops for added authenticity?
I am now an ex-Elan owner but will drop by from time to time with some suitably inappropriate comments.
