MG MGA - 1600 Steel Wheels Wanted

Hi All,
Looking for a set of 4 steel wheels for my 1600 Mk 1. Can collect within resonable distance from Essex. Must be in useable condition, but may need sandblast and paint. Tyres not important. Want the later 1600 type AHH8010 for front disc brakes.
Reading previous threads there seems to be a bit of a debate on acceptable, 1/8" or 1/4", lateral out of true. No expert on this, or even how measure off the car if buying. So I state useable.

Up to 1/8" is pretty normal for run out, and acceptable wen properly balanced. 1.4" run out is pretty horrible, only suitable for emergency spare.

Thanks for that Barney.
