Scott, yes, Australian made Simmonds three piece alloys, 14 X 6", very nice wheels, I bought them way back in 1983, just after I bought the S2 and began the huge job of bringing a bastard of a car back to life.

So if that?s a 13? rim with 2mm toe in that?s just over 1/3 degree toe in which is quite low, I?d have expected it to be nearer 1 degree, but theory is fine, in the end it?s how it drives that?s most important!
Just notice you posted them as 14 inch wheels so that?s 0.32 of a degree as opposed to 0.34 degree for a 13? wheel.
Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine!

14 inch rims, 2mm toe in each side, that is the set up.
