Saw a nice Mini, with Cobra slot mags leave Beaulieu, as we folded the MCR pavillion.

Such a set were originally fitted by my Father, on my Green Mini, when she was new.

They are still with me after all these years, and I have bought a 7.5" disc set,
to replace the 8.4" so I can reunite them, with the car.

Had a set of these in the '70's.......the Mini spanned many eras of car 'fashions' and each has their place and nostalgia/appeal, often dependent on your age and when you owned your first Mini! :D

Had an email back from JA Pearce about 5''x10'' and 6''x10'' Magnas... £2,410.80 for a set of five, plus delivery...! I'd be scared to let them out of the garage at that price... :lol:

(They are nice though...)

Scary isn't it? Fifty years ago that sort of money would have bagged you a brand new E-Type! Makes Rosepetals look cheap too..!

I think I'll carry on looking at s/hand ones till I decide what to do when my car's finished... the D1s on it now are lovely, but those JAPs are so appealing... :roll:

For that price, JAP man has been totally and utterly smoking dope to excess.

Brilliant workmanship, completely retarded business plan. No way do those wheels reflect the price and the supply/demand of the existing stock will see those (few) people who want them will shuffle the existing wheels between them.

To put things in perspective, my last set which were like new...matching 1967 set cost me £200. (6.5" x10" 8 spokes)

My previous 6x10" set cost me £180, I recall. I had a 5"spare to go under the boot board.

I'd pick his bankrupt stock up at auction.

They are OK on drums but on S brakes, they look totally silly.

Mine melted in a big fire.

I suspect that mws will simply copy them as well, so they will be available for a far cheaper price before long
