+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
