    How many sets do you want? I'd say a set of five 340mm original Fuego TRX rims, sans tyres, would be lets say, um, free???.....

    Default Free Fuego rims

    The original rims are worth nothing other than scrap value, though I did buy a brand new rim at the RCCV club auction for $10 - I hasten to add that I do have one brand new TRX tyre to go on it Michelin for whatever reason no longer make metric tyres to fit these rims.

    Now if you are wanting a few to support a tabletop or hose, then I am sure my wife would like to get rid of some from our over cluttered back yard. (either with or without tyres) (all tyres worn out of course )

    If you guys want to keep the original look of the car, could it be feasible getting a set of original Fuego alloys from NZ. Our cars were all British spec, and therefore never fitted with metric wheels (185/65 HR14 tyres as standard). It's quite easy to find wrecked cars here, although the wheels are often the first thing to go...

    Ive got a full set of rims with 90% TRX tyres on them (took'em off years ago). They'll be up for sale shortly with a matching 1985 Fuego car to suit

    If you do come across some, I am eager.. Been searching around Europe for some time.

    The R18s should also have them right?

    Try Ansell Eurospares in Christchurch NZ. I know they're wrecking a 1983 Fuego GTX (so has the earlier dish with 2 bands style wheels) with normal 14" rather than TRX size wheels. ph 0064-3-389-9969. They're pretty good.
