    Have you lacquered the cartridge ends to stop them going all green and powdery?

    I have been thinking new wheels were in order..... perhaps a coat of something would be better.

    Liking the bullet detail a lot. I do wonder how easy they'll be to remove on the hard shoulder at 23:30 in the rain though?

    Do you have a rough idea on the load ratings of those alloys? Wouldn’t mind some in gunmetal on my 102 Acv.

    If you found some genuine ones I reckon they'd be alright - OE wheels much better quality than cheap Chinese copies.

    Copy wheels tend to be 650/700kg. But, even 650kg gives you 2600kg across the vehicle (yes, I know, front axle weight is heavier than the rear).

    If you don't overload, and you drive sympathetically to the road conditions you could get away with copies - plenty do on a daily basis...

    Cheers! Oem. Wouldn’t risk copies with a kid on board.
