    I don't think there is such a thing?

    Gordini's (like the 8's and 10's) came out with 15" wheels originally. The Gordini had 4.5" rims (like the 10S here in Oz), whilst the others were 4" as far as my knowledge goes.

    The Works Australian Rally cars had 14" wheels but they were 8 or 10 centres which Bruce Collier used to weld into 14" rims.

    13" welded rims were popular in the 70's and 80's but to take a genuine gordini rim these days and cut and weld it into a 13" wheel would be sacrilege. R16 centres were also used from time to time and look the part in these conversions. Colliers have done many of these over the years.

    The other problem you can have is that the newly welded rims are quite often a bit wider than standard and some don't fit into the standard spare wheel hanger - depending on what width tyres you run.

    R12G's and R17G's all had 13" steel rims, 13x5.5 to be exact.

    Dave, G4ME

    Yes, I'm only after one (or two if that's going to swing the deal) - email me with a (hopefully non-obscene) price and I'll see whether we need to haggle!

    Best bet is to ring Dave at French Connection on (03) 9338 8191. He can sell/package/ship one. I've got some lying around so if you get stuck give me a buzz. Dave has my details.
    Good Luck....Paul
