Oooohh I want them! Don't have £600 to spare though....

Anyone interested in a set of alley cat alloys for, err, £600?

Hi, I found a set of these a while ago and am planning to get them blasted and painted this week so ive had a look at them today and noticed ive got two stamped LP923 (although one has got it stamped in the usual place and one has it stamped on the inside of the rim)





And the other pair have this stamped on the inside of the rim with no mention of Dunlop or LP923 anywhere





Anyone know anything about these are they later aftermarket copies or something?

Cheers Andy

There seems to be 2 types,the later like mine with no real gap between the barrel and rim and the early type with about 1" gap between/in between the 4 spoke/weld points.

The early type have been in the past mentioned as being factory fitted and the latter as optional extras.
Early type,factory fitted

Late type,optional extra

This of course could be incorrect,as always info on the Internet is only as good (or accurate) as the person who inputted it.

The wheel with the larger gap will not clear the brake caliper, whereas the one with the smaller gap will. When I bought four I found that I had two of each type so had to fit the ones with the larger gap on the rear of the car.

Really,that's good to know.
I did hear at a show that it had been questioned if the top wheel was in fact just some stock left over and someone flipped the barrel,so in fact the front is the back/rear of the rim,hence the poor clearance.

Your one photo



shows RO&CO., which I am going to guess refers to Rubery Owen. I was not aware that RO made wheels for Standard-Triumph (I know that Sankey was the usual "other" supplier of Triumph wheels), so it might be worth ensuring that the PCD on the RO-stamped wheels is indeed the 95.25mm/3.75" small Triumph pattern?
