Hi, they are too wide, you should see the outer ring of the wheel.
Doesn’t look bad though, cheers

Thanks for that - I knew something was not quite right with them.

No offence intended but why not use google translate before you post rather than causing dozens of us to have to do the same?

The rimbellishers that are period correct are the finer version, coming off the Sunbeam Rapier.

The fuller versions come off the Ford Escort and are not period correct, though do a reasonable job, but they are heavier and we all know who would have had something to say about that.

Les rimbellishers corrects sont la version la plus fine, issue de la rapière Sunbeam.

Les versions les plus complètes proviennent de la Ford Escort et ne correspondent pas à la période, mais font un travail raisonnable, mais elles sont plus lourdes et nous savons tous qui aurait pu dire quelque chose à ce sujet.
