Mk1 style alloy query

Post by maxgreenwood » Sun Aug 30, 2015 12:29 am

Did the mk1 style alloys become available for normal size tyres later on? I have them on my 1989 19trs and they seem to be wearing the standard 165 tyres

Yes they did, that's what I have on my GT, 14". They were always optional wheels, and were metric (365mm) on a Mk1 and imperial on a MK2 (14") then when they did the mild facelift in late 89 they painted the centres black with a slight recess (as fitted to Pauls 17TGD).
