A little rough around the edges but will refurbish nicely.  $150 OBO.  Need them gone to clear shop space.

Will they take "normal" lugs = like round or tapered seat?  Or do they require a 'shouldered lug"   - do you have lugs I guess is other question.

I don't have any lugs for it, at least not a full set.  It has a small taper and seems to use the same angle I have on my force and jbw wheels. I put a lug on the taper to see how well it matched up.  Pic if it helps.

That's actually a good price on those lug nuts, Spares wants  1.50 each for those same nuts, so 24 for 16 nuts which is $32 at the current exchange rate, close to same price as 7Ent wants, first time I've seen them competitive - on anything!

Are these still available?

Are they 4.5" or 5" wide?

Do you know what the off-set/back spacing is (ET ??)?

Let me know.

Thanks!

Do you know if these wheels will fit over 7.5" disk brakes? 

Did the green car that the wheels are shown on have drum brakes?

I'm guessing these wheel would stick out a long way on a disk brake car but I am not sure.

Let me know.  Thanks, Tim Allen

Tim, I'll mount them on my car with disc next week and snap a photo for you.  I don't see why they won't fit but the offset will be greater since the green car had drums.

Finally out at the shop after the holidays and job #1. Here they are mounted on spaced drums you'd pair with disc.  There is a 3/4" body gap running a straight line.

Interesting. If you go to www.wheeldictionary.net and scroll to the Cosmic section you'll see what these MkIII Cosmics should look like. The inner ring should be milled out between the machined faces. It would seem the example here has not been finished. BTW the wheel shown in the wheel dictionary is one of a set I sold to a guy on the Mini Mania message board many years ago. The finish of the unpolished surfaces is natural aluminum powder coat. Somebody Photo Shopped in the black finish which I personally don't like very much. I got three of my ex-wheels locally and the 4th one came from a Cosmic wheel guy in England who seems to no longer be around.

I shipped out a few sets of 10's rims only last year and the cheapest option was with USPS in one of their if it fits it ships boxes I think they were just under $20 each.
