Yes the alternator issues are all sorted now. Got a small denso alternator fitted now running off the supercharger belt. I think I'm going to sell the car now though. I really want a mk1 cooper!

My 7x10 Force Racing split rims with centre locks! It's a shame but i might never get around to fitting them!

Can you fit tyres yourself with force splits? I've read some people have done it and some have took to tyre place?

If you can do it yourself properly, how?

You build the wheels around the tyres and use a tube. The people who have the tyres fitted seal them up so they don't have to run tubes.

I bet you could if you tried hard enough seal them when fitting tyres.

You can build a wheel around a tyre with no tube, it's just not overly easy or neat.

My MB wheels a few pages back we're built at home around a tyre with no tube.

I'm using tubes so how would I do it?

Place tyre over the inner part of wheel, then push inner tube in tyre then put the outer lip on, then bolt up?

Which ever way suits you best. Remember to pull the valve through the outer lip and set it before you build it up, otherwise you'll have to take it all apart again!

Do any of the common split rim companies do split rims with an appropriate offset and width to enable me to continue running arch less?

I don't think Carl can get a small enough outer, I think I have the smallest he does and I need arches..
