A pair of unused 8x13 Wellers to fit Ford PCD ..... £10
Ideal for the back of the van :-)
Here's one after a coat of semi-matt black, next to another 13" rim.
The 175/50r13 A048 looks rather skinny doesn't it !
The plan is to run with some 205/60r13 or 235/45r13. To get an idea of how they look, here's a mid engined Fiesta on 235/50r13.
In the further quest for wheels, I have acquired a set of four 8x13 in Mini PCD (with some slicks too) !
The slicks are 7.5", meaning they are about the width of a 195 tyre, and don't actually look too stretched on the rim.
So, the cheaper Falken ZE502 in 205/60r13 looks like a viable option :-)
There had been the thought that the 8x13s may be used at the front of the van, but I think they are just a tad too wide to keep any semblance of a traditional look...
So we will probably be going with the 6x13 or 5x12, then just set the rear wheels inwards to match the track width.
Oooo, just found that 215/50R13 can be got for a reasonable price, and reviews of these Kumho 712s seem quite good...
Final selection of tyres & wheels fitted !
6x13 on the front with 175/50r13 Yoko 048
8x13 on the back with 215/50r13 Kumho 712
