inherited this (second picture isn't my car, it's another that is apparently in the same city as me and even the same club but I haven't found the owner yet). V8 blah blah blah. Has the very unhelpful pcd of 5x5 or 5x127. Because it has the engineering marvel of De Dion rear suspension and a McPherson strut front with an elbow, it has factory 14in wheels with a positive offset.
I coughed up and bought some okayish looking Rostyles for it off a p5b that are 15x5 with a +33mm offset, which is apparently boarderline for use. Apparently if you go too close to neutral offset it upsets the handling. Performance Wheels in Australia sell a minilite copy that is I think a +24 offset which is about the only wheel I can find in alloy that comes in that stud pattern - but the offset is wrong.
I need to find something in a 5 stud pattern (I will either get the wheel hubs changed or the wheels re-drilled) in a 15x5 or 15x6 wheel in a highish offset that looks period (ie 60s/70's) and is alloy. I could get the Rostyles re-finished but they weigh a ton as they are literally solid steel.
Suggestions? I like some of the 60's American Racing wheels or even Halibrand kidney wheels, but I can't find anything in a positive offset.
