Martin, can I grab some of those please if you have spares. I think I showed you my JAP's for the mk3 Radford.

Here are a couple more pictures from today; all now fitted and back on the car. Just the addition of the wheel nuts has set them off very nicely i think :)

(Sorry about the poor quality/lighting, but I am having to do everything inside a garage with the door closed so as not to give the game away!)

Thanks for posting all the interesting info and pics about your 6x10 JAP's in this thread, they look great finished off with the centre caps and wheel nuts. 8-)

I'm looking for a set of these 10" Mk1 (8 spoke) JAP wheels if anyone knows of any, would also consider 12".

Thanks for that, sadly though they're 'Mk2' jobs.

great thread this.. just re afirms my long held belief that no modern (post 80,s wheel design ) comes close to those made in the 60,s or 70,s.....the styles and designs and for that matter copies are crap compared to those avail 35+ years ago.... foxy52

I don't agree, the quality of most modern wheels, be they copies of 1960's designs or whatever are far superior to most of the wheels made in period - just look at that set of mystery rosepetals that someone posted up here the other week that looked like they where porus they had so many air holes in them! - you just wouldn't be able to get away with selling wheels of that dubious quality now a days, that's for sure!

id also argue that the minispares minilife design wheels stand up as a classic wheel - they have been available for 15 plus years and many cars are fitted with them! I would go as far to say that they are a perfect wheel, the flat edge rim design and the shape of the spokes is far prettier (and more period looking) than the modern minilight wheels.


I think its great that such a great range of wheels are avaible now - it certainly gives people the option of been a bit different

Minilites and Rosepetals were pure mag and prone to "pumice" corrosion/porous castings.

JAP's were different (were they LM-9)....they are some mag/alum alloy which was very strong and resisted corrosion. Pearce got their casting technique pretty good....or they remelted the rejects.

I have seen some shocking minilites which have made it onto people's cars....they really are dangerous.
