I've recently fitted Superlite rims to my TR 3A, somewhat reluctantly as I prefer the original look of the steel wheels and hubcaps but could never get the car to run smoothly and without a strange intermittent wobble. The difference is amazing; no more nagging vibration and the car even seems to steers better.
My question is is there any point in keeping the old wheels? I know that "new" original style steel wheels are not available but I could never recommend anyone fitting my old wheels to their car for obvious reasons. I would be happy to give them "free to good home" but should I just throw them out?
What do people think- are they irreplaceable original Triumph parts or just old junk?

Hi Peter, ask Mal Munro if they should go into the spares shed.

I need one good one, my spare is too buckled to use.

Good idea. Mal asked for two of them which I will arrange- you would be welcome to take your pick as well. 'm in Gisborne VIC.

Thanks Peter, send them to Mals. I can get one from his place and make a donation to Mal for the Register.
