First, beware the alloy wheels with knock-off adaptors. Several have failed 
in use. This does not seem to be a problem with the bolt on wheels.

Second, Kelvin, how did you get the alloys on the Maggot - did you have to 
machine the hub down a little (I recall assessing my ZB for fitment of 
Triumph adaptors and wire wheels and having to reduce the hub)?


58 Twincam race car - knock-off Dunlop wheels (went back from mags a few 
years ago)
62 Deluxe Coupe -  knock-off Dunlop wheels
69 MGC - wires
63 TVR Grantura Mk3 race car - American Racing magnesium (NOT aluminum) 
wheels - a competition option for this car.
65 Jensen CV-8 - aftermarket alloy wheels
72 Jensen Interceptor - factory alloy wheels (and alloy NUTS too!)
88 Fiero GT - factory alloy wheels
69 Lamborghini Islero S - factory Campagnolo magnesium knock-off wheels and 3 
eared Ben Hur style spinners.

Sad to say, my wife's minivan just has factory alloys, no knock-offs ;-)
