Cosmic alloy wheels

Post  MGs on Thu Dec 02, 2010 1:52 pm

Our Elf is fitted with period Cosmic alloy wheels. However, two of the centres are missing. Anyone know where I can get some
replacements? I have found the stickers online, but not the centres themselves. Would other wheel centres fit?

Cheers

are they the early or later type ? the early centres are held in with a nut and metal bar from the back, the later type are held in with a spring around the wheel centre. If it is the early type then yes they are available. Unfortunately they are not interchangeable.

Thanks, looks like I'm out of luck. They seem to be the later type, they just push in.

The front-loading spring retained centres are available - possibly MWS or one of the other shows specialists - I picked up a set of four last summer for my refurbed Mk2s.

I sent a comprehensive e-mail with photos of one of the centres I have to MWS a couple of weeks ago.
They say that they no longer supply the front fitting centres only the rear fitting plastic ones. Crying or Very sad
