Hi John:

Thanks; I see that I hit the send too fast. It seems that there are some
listed with the major suppliers as I am informed by you and other vigilant
list members. I checked rimmerbros this morning and I thought it was showing
"no longer available" so I did not enquire further. Still, although expensive,
it is good news to me. Time to order a rim or two for the winter restoring
project. Now to figure out how to match the powder coating I had done by a
sadly departed list member.

Hi, Mark

A quick check of Mr. Rimmer's website in the UK indicates the TR6 factory
issue steel wheel is available. That's the good news. The not so good news is
they cost about US$200 each plus shipping. NFI

Years ago, I had all four of my TR6's original steel wheels blasted, trued
then powder-coated. Now our lousy roads in Quebec have bent a couple a bit
of true and yet again my poor car has the dreaded Triumph Shakes. Sadly, the
Boston shop that did the original truing seems to have vanished other than
some youtube videos.

I really like the look of the originals and do not want to switch to alloy.
For some reason, the TR6 wheel is almost the only component not being
aftermarket. NOS wheels appear to be made from the purest form of
Is there any steel wheel out there that looks similar to the TR6 original and
can accept the trim rings?
