More on this.
I've narrowed down my search to some mesh style wheels that are 16 x 7 ET 35 so should fit ok. Here in Australia, Simmons mesh wheels were a common period upgrade. Simmons have started reproducing these, but are quoting $1,000.00 a wheel
These DOTZ wheels are PCD 5 x 100, so I could use variation (wobble) nuts. The hub measurement on these is 60.1. Am I stretching things on the hub, especially when combined with the wobble nuts? Too many variations?
I can't find hub rings that go 60.1 to 58.6. The site I'm looking at the wheels on says GTV6 hub is 58.1 and has rings for that, but the are many references here to 58.6.
Thanks for the advice as always.
I've had the car for around 6 weeks. So far I've:
Fixed air con
Painted the front badge surround red. Only red on the car. I had to have some.
Met the cars new mechanic. Had a short black, while we talked through the car. Very Italian. Major service and inspection. No issues requiring attention. Phew.
I want to get the wheels sorted,and then stop spending money for a while.
I'm getting feedback from the finance director that she doesn't have an expensive toy, and maybe she should take up vintage Italian shoe collecting..
