    Also, what width rim do you need? Generally a 6.5" rim would be appropriate for a 205/60 tyre but it could possibly be fitted to anything from 5.5 to 7.5. If you are trying to match to existing wheels the width should be marked on the inside somewhere.

    Hi
    I would get the you the info needed if I knew what you meant. PCD? Bolt size? You are dealing with an Ulsterman who has just upgraded from a pony and cart. Such is progress.
    Regards

    There re many sources for wheel terminology, this looks at first glance, quite good. http://www.offroaders.com/technical/wheel-terminology/

    Danny seems to know the particular pattern that you might need, as he apparently knows that you have a Marlin supplied Berlinetta, a picture would help everyone else.

    Do they have eBay in Ulster these days, or even a classic ford club?
