New steel wheels

Postby jonathon H » Tue Jul 26, 2016 7:41 pm

I'm thinking of getting a batch of either 14" or 15" steels made for the Minor. To start with they would be 5.5J, but I might increase these to unto 7".
Tooling is quite expensive, so I thought I'd ask on here if anyone would be interested in the principle. The design would be near to the original Minor
and will incorporate either std hubcaps or ours.

Please let me know folks :D

Would the offset be set or is there options?
15's would be nice...

The idea would be to supply maybe 2-3 offset options for both the 14's and 15's, depending on the width of rim. It might be one for a 5.5 J, one foe a 6J and then one for the 7J. Not sure as yet
as to how much each options tooling will be.

Not sure of cost yet. Tops £110 but down to £80 if the numbers stack up.

Will the wheels look like the Weller version or would they be more like the originals. ...

I'd love a set of these even more

Ideally a more standard Minor look.

Hi Jonathon,

14", 5.5J with standard offset would be of interest. Is the 4" pcd standard? Given the current level of interest, what is the latest on price?

4 " PCD would be 5 or 5.5". This is just a general open question to gauge interest . The descision to commit to £5-10K development cost will hinge on trade interest to a large extent . Financial commitment will only be forthcoming on a minimum guaranteed sales projection, which will need to be at least 50 sets of 4 wheels. Costings will hopefully be around the figures mentioned previously. :D

I am on 100mm PCD but could convert to 4" ( I would need to check to see if there is enough flange diameter, on the Mazda hubs to convert to 108mm).
My minimum would be 6x15.
