This wheel has always been tubeless. Tubes are only required if fitting tube-type tyres.

If you are using tube-type tyres or wish to fit a tube for any other reason then you will need 175/185 x 16 tubes. This wheel is laced to the outer part of the rim only and so does not require a rim band.
Warranty Chrome: two year structural and cosmetic
Painted: two year structural and one year cosmetic

Extra Information

Other comments Kit car based on C-Type (XK120C, built between 1951 and 1953), using Mk II or XJ6 Series II as a donor.

The original C-type was fitted with 54 spoke aluminium rim wire wheels with XK shell - in this case this replica kit will not fit.

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.
