Tooo Old skool for a MK3  IMO...

I quite like D, possibly not in that colour scheme though.

They are going on my Capri.


All of the wheels are custom made to order, and are all available in 15"

I'm going for 15 x 8, ET4.

13" 4 spokes were standard on mk3 lasers and offered  as an x pack option for any mk3.
heres mk3 with the 15" 4 spokes they make (they don't fit properly - the bloke can't even drive it but you see what it looks like on a mk3.




btw - this is the colour the cars being done...

...Moss green candy over silver base.

super choice.

this would also be a cool wheel for the capri.

finaly they make them now for 4 studs. with a silver hart, they would be my choice for the capri.

Thanks everyone who voted - I'm looking forward to getting them and hopefuly by the time they arrive (8 weeks+) the capri should be ready for them  

TT - That billet style looks AWESOME in 13" but they created that image to show me how it would look in 15" and I don't like it nearly as much. Its also a billet centre and would have cost 300 quid more.  BTW - I just realised that they aren't charging me for the "classic build" option (hidden perimeter bolts)  

Paul, those are the wheels I told a friend to put on his Jaguar XJ8 ...in 19"

i have torque trust II wheels on my capri.





i have just bought a set off 17 and 18 inch cim 517 wheels for my '65 mustang. almost the same design. these wheels can go up to 22 inch, can be drilled in every 5 stud configuration, and they are pretty cheap.



i dont know if these wheels are getting sold in the uk.

Amazing rims Paul   ...the CIM are only available in NL it seems but we do have American Racing here - I concidered them and Cragars but in the end, with 4 x 108, theyre weren't many options. I was thinking about the Ansen sprint slot mag they do but despite listing a 4 x 108 fitment, they won't supply less than about 100 wheels or something.

edit - btw, do the rears rub at all?

nope, take a good look, you see that i have enough space.

as for the cim wheels, if your friend is intressed, i can give you the email address where i got them from and see if he wants to ship them to the UK. as for the price, i payed 800 euro's (thats about 690 pounds) including tax. the chrome version is 200 euro's more.

I better not show them to him right now - he got made reduntant last year and has been housedad while his wife works so it might only upset him  

By coincidence, I was going to ask your help in finding the 225 45 15 Toyo Proxes R1R tyres I want to fit to the rear wheels... Toyo doesn't market them in the U.K but it does in Holland I beleive (from looking at the Toyo global website) - I did try to find Dutch tyre sites but couldn't read them so didn't get far  
Could you have a quick look for them and if they can post to u.k? I would be very grateful

edit - just had another look at your capri... very, very nice car but it needs a rear louvre to be complete

nice wheels are like nice girl's, they can upset someone.

Ive  been looking at them for YEARS before I saw your car  ...but yeah, seeing them on helped rule out the other options - that and the landslide poll results

Yeah, I mentioned it in the same post    5% discount  

What are you gonna do with yours then? They'l never fit standard arches properly with those outers

a baseball bat can do wonders to the wheel arches. if that does not help, you can always enlarge them by cutting them open and ad a piece off sheet metal. thats what i did with the rear arches. with the front wheel arches, i used a hamer and a dolly to make the arches wider and bigger.

if you dont want to cut or hammer the sheetmetal, why dont you use a capri mk1 rear axle? they are 2 inch's shorter than the capri 2 and 3 axle.
