Wheels- Ap Brakes

Hi
apart from Trophy 160 16" and TF160 16" wheels are there any other kind of
MG 16" wheels that would take the AP brake kit without the use of spacers?

The only other MGR wheels are the "ultra lights" (not that light but bloody expansive new). There have been a few after-market wheels but these tended to be 17", then there is the post MGR 85th TF's wheels.

hmm, actually Jon Norris said that 16" will fit fine, even without the spacers. I have the 16" 8 square spoke wheels, and he pointed to mine when he said that.

I would have to disagree with Jon on that one, I know of an F with square spoke wheels and it definitely needed spacers.

Which wheels have you got? The only square spokes I know of are 6 spoke

Pretty sure the Cup style ones fit as well, the TF Cup cars used a 310mm rotor setup, and they're lighter than the square spokes, being the same weight as the Ultra Lights.

They also look the best by a country mile

Are they the ones that look like the old MK1 MPI wheels that have partially melted?

They ARE MK1 wheels, like minilites, you know, that classic british design? Also, they were de riguer for the race series, not just poncy road use..... Sooooo popular that MG brought them back for the TF....

You see I have 16" square spokes needing a refurb.

Nicktune has some freestyle Alloys which look nice.

I'm looking at this with a view to adding AP kit later this year.

No issues at all, made by the people who make the OEM 11 spokes
