Hi

My original magnesium wheels - 41/2 x 15 - may have been damaged in transit and to replace them have been offered a set of original bimetal Borrani - aluminium rim steel centre - at quite enormous cost!

I just wondered whether they are available and what should I expect to pay....

Thanks Richard

I've bought and sold a few of these over the years. The last ones I sold on ebay about 5 years ago for about $800 each. There is someone in Palermo, Sicily making very good copies out of Borrani steel wheels and new aluminum outer rims. The guy has written a book about Appia Zagatoes and the Mille Miglia, I think.
What happened to the magnesium wheels? Are they repairable?

Thanks for that reminder on the rebuilt wheels from Sicily - I recall but had forgotten.

The SZ moved in the container during shipping from UK to Japan -- unable to crack test in Japan, yes, I know it sounds unlikely but apparently true -- so need something at short notice.

Going back to the original, rears only, fronts being Amadori, seemed a good option, but cost is daunting.

I just wondered what market rates are....
