Extra Information

Other comments The painted XW459 wheels have been photographed with the Continental (no ears) Morgan knock-on caps but for the AC Greyhound please refer to the spinner options above.

Always check the history of the vehicle to ensure that there have been no modifications to the running gear.

Hubs/splines, spinners and nuts remain the same, unless noted otherwise, regardless of which wheel is fitted.

We also stock wire wheel maintenance accessories such as our Cleaning Kit (Refills available), Cleaning Brush, Degreaser and Tyre Foam.
