Superlite Alloy Wheels

Postby wolfie » Thu Dec 19, 2013 1:08 pm

Just a query really. I used to have a set of superlites on my mini and loved the look. I'm guessing they probably wont fit on the midas but thought I'd ask to see if anybody had tried

Gold convertible mate. Got 14" alloys at the moment but I think some 13" superlites would look good

They're made by BK Rcing. I went to an alloy wheel centre and the guys worked out the offset that would work. I told them what kind of style I liked and they found a few sets that would fit. I just had to grind out a bit of the wheel arch and re-glass on the inside of the footwell to bring the thickness back. When the typhoon style weather stops I'll take 1 off and look at the label to find out the exact offset and design name for you rich
