I''m going to buy a spare set of wheels for my Griff 500 to use on track days. If I remember they''re 7x15 AND 7.5x16 rims. Does anybody know the PCD of the stud pattern, the front and rear offset? Also the correct diameter for the centre hole would be handy. Presumably the 7-spoke 500 wheels are the same for both the Griff and the Chimera. I''d like to assume that they''re the same as the Ford source, but with a TVR that''s tempting fate!

Offset is cast into inside of spokes, if I recall properly its 35mm front and 25mm rear. I will check tonight, I have loose wheels in my garage. PCD is 108mm, as per Ford. Don't know about hole dia, again I will measure for you tonight.

On my 99 Griffith rears were 7.5 J not 7 J perhaps Phil mis-read or mis-typed but just a point. Rich...

Oooops!! Yes, rears are 7.5J. Typed in a bit of a rush on the way to bed, sorry 'bout that. I hope Matt doesn't end up with some skinny rears! Edited by philshort on Thursday 30th August 20:03

Cheers Phil! I've been looking for some, but I can't find any that: a) look OK b) available in the right size c) don't cost a mint........ Anyone out there with a spare set of 500 rims? Will pay cash and collect!
