Well here we go folks.The moment of truth.Looking for the stamp on these was my priority to verify they are in fact Dunlop 5.5j wheels.

Looking good so far

now I am a happy bunny! Can't believe my luck,they even have 4 new toyo tyres.

A full refurb now is to be carried out to compliment the new paint on the car . Also want to get my hub caps re chromed.

qed,
Sorry to rain on your parade, but how does "L8(?)923" make them 5.5Js?

Measure the things!!
Here's a pic of the crude but effective pair of calipers I made from wood laths with nails fied in the tips that I made for measuring rims.   Allow a little extra for the thickness of the metal.

And look for "5.5J" on them, which is what mine have.
"5.5 x 13 x 16"  The "16" refers to the 16 holes.
and
the Dunlop sign with "1144"

The part number for 5.5J Dunlop wheels is LP923. I refer you to Canley's website :

http://triumphmuseum.blogspot.co.uk/2009/01/dunlop-wheels.html

- the page for Dunlop Formula D2 wheels shows them listed.

Good evening to you too.Alittle aggressive in your second line.
If you would be so kind as to calm down and perhaps read the previous posts or even use Google to do some research you'll find that the smooth type Lp923 has this stamped on the barrel and your more common and less desired wheel is in fact totally different.
My parade is still intact and will March on just fine.

Oval hole steels IMHO look better on 70's Triumphs plus 13/60s and MKll Vitesses and hubcap steels on 60's Triumphs but just my view....

Different opinions are fine,if everyone liked the same things the world would be very boring.

Looking for some centre caps I've come across some that look almost flat,ie no recesse for centre decal.(like the one fitted above)

Is the one fitted correct?

Are you serious John?

So the Dunlop 1217 has 22 holes
and the Dunlop 957 has .88 holes.

No one's doubting what yours are,just why you assume mine are not.

the last number is the offset IIRC. In the case of Johns wheel, 16 (mm?)

there is more than one offset of the oval hole wheels out there......
