mike i hope your wheels do last as i know how dissapointed i was especially the 2nd time around when mine bubbled up, if they have baked them between coats or it was done in a moisture free workshop you should be ok fingers crossed , neil i had to fit 165's on the 6inch rims otherwise they wouldn't go under the 1.3's arches, tyres are nicely stretched and not over stretched, we have fitted 175-70-14 to a few fulvias recently and they look fine on the standard steels, i've just fitted 165's to my steels as i wanted to keep the car 100% origional + they were free off a suplier  Grin "perks of the job lol" , anyway my wheels have gone off today for refurb , i'll post some pics of them when i get them back

I can say Dunlop Sport Sp01 175 14 70's have transfromed my HF steering from the old 185 65 14 Pirelli P6000,s.

Cahps and Chappesses,

Mag wheels are VERY different to standard Aluminium equivalents and Cromadora 13" 6J ones are now 40+yrs old.  They are prone to cracking (internally as well as around the venting apetures.

There are just 2 places in the EU I could recommend for this job. One is very expensive in Germany (call Peter de Wit/Vere Lancia for quotes but sit down first!).

The other expert is in York. He refurbished 2 sets of these wheels for me and the process involves the use of a Kiln to aerate the wheels and remove internal mositure before using Aircraft spec primer (like the green/yellow Zinc Chromate style of the originals). Baking is needed at each step.

I have one set spare and unused if anyone wants to buy some.

Best

Hope you're keeping the highlights, one colour overall spoils the appearance.

Brian i was just sitting here confused as to highlights and thinking  "what highlights  Huh? " then suddenly the penny dropped  Roll Eyes i've got 16 inch delta hpe turbo wheels on my car not the usual dedra turbo rims, for me they look a little more modern and fill the arches better without looking too boy racer, i bought 5 new rims when i bought the car however 2 were scraped "NOT BY ME!" so before corrosion sets in i'm getting them refurbed
