Has anybody got any of these humble 5x10" Minilte wheels that they would be prepared to part with? They are marked up "ET16" (Offset) and "Made In Britain" on the casting on the front rim face. If any one has any please contact me thumbup

Cheers G.

Cos most of those come with a tapered nut, not the sleeved one. suppose you can push out the seat and use them.

The sleeved nut variety would be ideal but I'm open minded if anybody has them to fit the standard taper nut also.

There are 5 in my garage.....not sure if I want to part as I might get around to using them again...might swop a good engine and box! (see other threads).....or sell complete with the rest of the car.
A set of GB alloys similar marked ET21 also
pm me to discuss but located on the Isle of Skye

These are tapered nut fitting by the way.
Can you press out the centre to use sleeve nuts? A quick look wouldn't suggest that is possible but I may be wrong, was a bit dark in there.

Suddenly you're over run with them, seem to recall these ET16 on my car rubbed the outer edge of the tyre occasionally.

Peter - I had to buy (seemingly abundant) tapered type when I saw them and then get machined for the sleeve nut fitting.
