    Default Vortex 18" wheel

    Well, it finally happened. Got boxed in and, when extricating the car, I managed to kerb one of the Vortex 18" rims on my Rover 75V8.

    Does anyone have one (or more!) Vortex 18" rims lying around? I would consider a set of 4, but prefer a 'singleton'.
    In need of a re-furb would not be a major problem, but preferably one hat can be re-machined and clear-lacquered as per the originals.

    Second problem would be getting it to Holland, but cross that bridge when we come to it!

    How it did look !
    ... until last night. Can't bring myself to take a photo now

    Hi David,

    Ricky Bowker has some for sale on Facebook, I have asked for a price on four of them (Although I probably won’t buy them, as I have spent too much lately), he has five.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the tip, Justin. As it happens Ricky had chatted about those before, and mentioned the singleton back in November when I was looking to do something about that nastily kerbed one on 'Olive'. Unfortunately he wants twice the cost of a full re-macine and re-furb of that wheel, so I let it pass. I would still have considered it is a spare, but decided against it, for right or for wrong.
    Thanks for thought anyway. Appreciated !
