    Alloys

    Igot mine from a scrappy still locked on .had to go 58miles to the factory who made the locks to find a key .And as they were obsolete they gave me a box full .The wheels cost me 25 for the ones of the meastro with good tryes and he gave me another 2 that he had got .Iam keeping mine silver when i paint them

          work around the colour of your car, ie if it was green, go white?

            Does anyone have a spare set of centre caps for this type of wheel by any chance?

              Personal preference but I think black is the best colour for wheels.

                I agree with jack if not silver the only other colour would be black on wheels!


                had you asked me in the late sixties I would have said gold as in the lotus but now you ve got to be careful not to be shouted "chav" in the street by hordes of trendy youngsters

                            looking for rims

                            hello to everybody
                            Im looking for rims for my 2td montego
                            from what car can I fit some if I dont find any rover montego rims?
                            probably there are other cars which have the same rims as montego has got
                            any advice is welcomed!!!!!!!

                              Maestro/Montego alloy wheels.
                              MGF/TF Alloy wheels.
                              Triumph TR7 Alloy wheels.

                              There are also the odd set of custom made "Compomotive" alloy wheels about if you can find some.

                              The MGF/TF wheels when fitted may need a small(2-4mm) spacer fitting to ensure they dont rub on the brake callipers.

                              Mal.
