    Default 14" Renault Dunlop Special Rims.

    I have 4 x 14" Dunlop Special (Gordini) Rims.

    They are a bit rusty and need repainting (or widening) but are solid.

    So. I have a friend with a R10 looking for some wide rims, just wondering if your description 3x150 means
    '3 stud pattern (same as the R8/R10) x150 mm wide' would fit straight on ?? Is there anybody out there that can confirm this.
    Thanks
    Phil

    Yes, in a rally up near the Cathedral Ranges in Victoria we suffered a second puncture in my 16TS and used a standard R10 spare wheel and tyre off a control official to continue. It was fitted to the rear LHS and we couldn't detect any handling difference for the rest of the event.

    If the rims are off a 16TS, they will not fit a R8/10. Despite the stud pattern being the same, the offset is not suitable and the wheels will hit the calipers/suspension.

    Yes Henry. In the instance I related, we were the other way around, R10 to R16. The pcd means the centres will fit of course, but the offsets are indeed different.

    Thanks Kim and Henry. Point taken. I had/will have again (long story!!) 14" x 6 1/2" fitted to my R8 but these rims were purpose built using cut down R8/R10 or R16 wheels (not sure which) with 14" x 6" wide sections welded to them. Even they scrapped the front end of the tie rods and a little grinding had to be done just enough to take of the casting marks from the tie rod ends!!

    Guess I'll leave the 3 x 150 alone then.

    Thanks guys Phil

    I had custom made rims for a Dauphine running the r 10 suspension and brakes. Used the 10 rims, which had the rim cur off and used a 14 inch rim of a Volvo 240. Had no problems with rubbing.
