MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Center Lock Wire Wheels
|Hi everyone, long time no post. If this has been answered before then appologies in advance.|
Does anybody know of a 14"x5.5j wire wheel for tubeless tyres with the correct offset (or as near as damn it) for the midget on a factory original wire wheel car.
As some of you may or may not recall I have the 14" knock on alloy with 175 tyres already, but am considering switching back as I prefer the look and the lightweight to those already fitted.
|Boy are those nice desirable wheels! are you selling them at some point?|
|Bob Turbo Midget England|
|I love centre lock alloys, why on earth would you want to change them for all the hassle of wires,?|
all of the sources I know of who sell wire wheels for Midgets (MGOC, Dayton Wire Wheels, etc), generally sell wire wheels that call for inner tubes
When I spoke with Dayton they said they can make them tubeless now, if desired, but don't show it in their catalog.
|Brain, good to hear your still alive, missed you at Midget50.|
If your into originality im gladly to help you off these "awfull" looking brake pots.
Just send them to Holland and I will throw them away for you ... :)

|Hi guys, yes still alive, however the car needs some work on it now, not used it for 2 years or so, lots going on I'm afraid.|
Arie if ever I decide to throw them then you have first shout.
Dave, not sure that I will change them, I just think the wires look better.
Thanks all for the responses so far, I will keep you all up to speed as things progress.
