Ok thanks Spider,

 

You've convinced me the spacers are out and so I need to source some custom mags from Australia though. 

Chrisnealewheels has some but all the good stuff is 5 hole or bigger than 15 inch.  

I'll keep looking for custom 4/101.6 wheels that can bolt straight on with the right ET and being 15x7 format.

 

My shopping would be so much easier if I lived in England with all you guys.  

 

Brad.

Your right their gazz.

I reckon I would have heaps of stowaways in them suit cases on my return  journey.  

Hope all my mini friends are safe over there?

Brad, Chris Neale Wheels used to make anything you want, I'm sure that's still the case. While what they may have shown on the webpage might well be 5 stud at 15" that would likely only be because most vehicles that can take a 15" wheel would be 5 stud. They used to be at Chullora (Sydney, NSW) when they were known as Neale Wheels, I haven't looked for some time, however, why not jump on the horn if you see a style of theirs you like and see what they can and can't do.

I ended up ordering some Chris Neal wheels in 15x17 format with a ET of 12 just to be sure so they wont foul on the inside in silver.

Not a spacer in sight ;-)

 

I may have to remove my front rubber flair which might have clearance issues.

 

Thanks

Woops that should be 15x7 not 15x17, I don't want to take out light poles 😉

They are a nice looking wheel mate, be it in 17" or 7" !!

Be sure to post up some pictures when you get them fitted up. You might be able to retain your Rubber Spats, but then I guess you're after the look without them.

Quite a Nice looking Moke you have there Brad, and I see you have your new wheels - they seemed reasonably quick on delivery and they certainly set it apart from others.
