    Midget 13" rostyle wheels

    I have a need of 4 off or 6 off 13" rostyle or steel wheels to suit a Marina roadster, with or without tyres

    MG midget wheels wont fit Marina axles of either saloon or the half ton van as they are 4" PCD.
    What you need are either Marina or Triumph Herald/Spitfire/Vitesse or GT6 wheels, which can range from 3½ to 5 inch widths.
    Some 1800 TC Marinas were fitted with rostyles

    As Ben says. 1800TC Marina wheels are the ones to hunt for...
    - 9th Custodian of JRR 929D, the Triumph Vitesse based special Paul Moorehouse built prior to the Triumph based Roadster kits.
    - 8th owner of Roadster chassis number 2395. Kit manufactured 1983, first registered in 1987. Now owned by Barry!
    - Builder of chassis number 2325 (PKK 989M) in the mid 80's. Now owned by Eric & Lynne in the NE of England.

    There is a terrific write up in the latest Morris Marina Owners Club Mag, that detailed many of the 3.75” PCD wheels, from several suppliers. Worth a read!
    As always, standard Marina wheels have a 1/2” offset but depending on your tyre manufacturer/profile etc. You take your chances taking care of the clearances available on the front suspension, the rear is pretty much wide open.
    Spacers are dodgy as the standard studs are short, and they really need to be concentric, not so easy on a Marina saloon hub.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.
