    Question which wheels???

    anyone know which wheels these are? I need some spigot rings for them. one place told me they might be TSW Pace alloy. But i'm not sure as they don't have the TSW centercaps, just plain chrome. i wondered if they could be cheap relicas??

    Id certainly say they look like TSW Pace ones to me. Look at the position of the valve and the step from the outer rim to the inner rim holding the valve looks the same if not very very similar to me. If you can measure the hub mount where the sigot ring goes you should be able to match that up with the ones from TSW.

    On a similar note. I saw a 08 Vectra 1.9CDTi SRi the other day with what I would say were 18 inch alloys, with a VX centre cap, but they were not standard SRi ten spoke or 19 inch snowflakes. I didn't quite get the spokes counted before the lights changed but they were either 18 or 20 spoke. They looked good, which is what attracted my attention. Anyone know what they might be?

    Another spigot fix, and one I particularly like

    pen a can of Lager, and consume to the preferred choice of entertainment, being Football, Motorsport, etc

    When empty cut said can into 10mm thick strips around the diameter wrap around the hub.
    Hold in place with duct tape.
    Replace wheel.

    Admire handywork and for the sake of science explore if a second can of said brew tastes as good as the first as this wheel changing malarky is darn thirst work!

    ...........................

    Seriously however it is a good temporary fix to get rid of the wobbles and allow you to locate the correct size spigots
