Well, I'm after some of these too. If ANYONE ever hears of some then a PM would be really appreciated.
Long shot but Weller wheels say they'd consider making a run of 30 identical sets. Is anyone interested.....?

I kept looking out for some, and then I see the weller wheels do the lotus cortina ones, (mmmm gorgeous) but as we all know different p.c.d. So at that time I looked to see if they made others.

If they did a run of them, how much would they charge! that would be the issue! Although they would be new and damage free!
I would be interested, My other option was to get my skinnys banded to 5.5.

The wellers would be the same type, solid ones not ones with holes round the wheel like the later gt6?

Thanks for the info, keep us updated.


Cheers

Do weller class a set as 5?

That's what I would want. Surely there should be a bigger market for them than 30 sets,
The Amount of people looking for a set!!!
Spit, herald etc, some specials, and isn't one of the lotus small cars the same p.c.d? So there could be a bigger market.

as do the the TR7, the Metro/Rover 100 and MG-F. Off set will be different though.
You might need heavier studs (M12)




1976 TR7 FHC (bought for its wheels in 2013, currently undergoing some TLC ...)
1980 TR7 DHC (a.k.a. Kermette, my first car bought in 1988 )
1981 TR7 FHC (Sprint engined, a.k.a. 't Kreng, bought as a parts donor in 1994, the rest is history as they say)

Looks like there's two on the rear of this locost.... ebay item 111382852083 Front wheels are Ford hubs as the alloys are Capri Mk2 Ghia but the stud spacing on the rear wheels looks smaller than Ford and they don't have the slots round the edge of the dish as in Lotus Cortina. I'm sure they are LP923's.
He might let them go separately - you never know.......

I would say they are lotus rims on the rear. It has a ford 105 rear axle!

In the description he says it is all triumph front suspension, discs and hubs? So what are those wheels from? They do look similar to the Capri style alloys though.

120 wheels is a pretty small run considering the size of the Triumph community.

Any idea of cost?

Not a bad looking wheel, it's the deep dish of the o/e wheel I am really looking for.

Have had a contact from a possible seller, just in the hands of others at the moment.
