      Because LORA (L289 ORA) has a different stud fitting to normal Maestros, I thought I'd have to put up with normal wheels or v. expensive after market ones. Luckily my local Rover breakers (Paul...great man!!) said that Rover600/800 wheels fit and he had a set of 17" for sale. After much juggling with tyre sizes and spacers and as she's lowered 2", I come up with the 'scrubbing' on full lock and she drives beautifully

      Fronts 185/45/17" with 5mm spacers
      Rears 205/55/17" with 10mm spacers...just enough to clear the rear leaf springs
