I think you will find that this type of wheel requires tubed tyres if you follow the link on my earlier post you will see.Keith Alexander said:Thinks I would like to know how they are constructed to allow tubeless tyres to be used?
Also would one need to ensure the tyre manufacturer/ your insurer were happy with the combination?
I am assuming they are of traditional construction and need to be trued by an expert on a regular basis?
Nice for occasional use but cleaning them would be a nightmare
Just the trip to Beaulieu and back had my previously completely clean Serpents covered in fine brake dust wire wheels like that would need cleaning almost every 100 miles
They were ok in the days of drum brakes tubed tyres and relatively low performance not sure if the are appropriate today
Thanks for getting back to us Gert, as you see they have started quite a conversation on hereGert said:Hi there,
you are right, the owner of this car is scotty.
The wheels are buit in USA, the company is called Dayton. It is the only company as far as we know that offers such wheels for the Rover 75. They are available in 16" or 15".
It is not so difficult to clean them because they are fully chromed and the manufactorer offers a special cleaning spray.
I'd written a message in your forum some months ago with the link to Dayton I think.

I know, this is a lot of money,
