I have recently seen a post on the forum showing a Fulvia with what may be Skoda wheels. This rang a faint bell in my memory and I recall a conversation with someone (it may have been Chris Payne many years ago when I bought some parts off him - if not, Chris profuse apologies for taking your name in vain) and the advantages of Skoda wheels over the standard Fulvia ones (A set of chromodoras may be beyond my budget). I think this was due to the width of the wheels and the smaller effort required to make them move. can anyone shed any light on this/did I dream it/etc?

Not sure about the post, but my Sport carries a "space saver" spare wheel which is an old basic Skoda steel wheel. As the tyre is an ordinary tyre the 50mph bit does not apply! and it gives valuable luggage space in the rear of a Sport S2.

Skoda, when rallying the Rapide used Minilite wheels, and the stud centres are the same as a Fulvia.   However they are 13".   So will only fit on a Series 1 car, and not over the S2 calipers.

Geoff,

Yes you are correct, I did see a VW Beetle once with 2000HF Cromodoras!

Just to shed some light/ lite on Minilites/ Minilights for Fulvias. Here are some photos from 1995 of the ex-Ron O’Connor S1.5 Sport complete with Minilites. I think the car had S2 Girling brakes, which necessitated machining metal out of the inside of the wheels to clear the calipers.

The guy in the photo is not Ron, it was the bloke who was trying to sell the car at the time.

Begs the question, seems a bit of task to make them fit, so why bother? What advantage is gained? is it just aesthetics?
