Just spotted these, don't know anything about them. but they seem to allow you to fit differing PCD wheels to your MGF and maybe Midas Mk3 as they are both Metro based . But I may be wrong. More investigation needed.

They only work on altering a K-series to variable PCD by the look of it
Only fit cars with a 95.25pcd to then allow fitting of wheel up to 114 pcd

-7 ET is way out, I've not actually worked out the ET but ones that will fit will be a positive ET.

With regard to 14" wheels altering the hubs to 100 mm PCD will open up the options, or get some 4" PCD Image wheels made.

ETA a rough calculation on a 6" rim gives an ET of around +36 if I've worked it out correctly.

If only I had the budget. ..

yikes! +36 would definitely cause me a problem with my new suspension !! Considering that I have made my RFXs less positive by spacing them by 5mm !!
I do like the look of these image wheels though ! :)

It looks like I added the 5 mm the wrong way, so +26 I think.
