    How about a set of steelies from a "normal" Clio. I'd say you should be able to pick up a set fairly cheap from a dealer given all the special Verve models with alloys that seem to be going around.

    Default Retreads

    nate

    I'm not familiar with the Clio setup, but I seem to recall "someone" stating that clio wheels would fit a Fuego - if that is so, then perhaps there is a market for Fuego superlight rims with retreaded TRX. (I have plenty of worn tyres!!)

    One word of warning, my Daughter got some retreads a few years back when new TRX were on back order overseas - some performed o.k. but one shed a few inches of its retread so we took them off the Fuego

    See Jo proffi's post on the weight of TRX rims compared with aftermarket alloys.

    Of course!
    Rang the local dealer & awaiting a response!
    It'll be interesting to hear the $$$ though...
    Wonder if Tempe or any other fine establishment would have a few Clio or equiv steelies hanging around... hmmmm

    If you can find some to fit a pair of spacesavers could be the go for the rear, and they will be east to transport in the boot

    Oh Yeah!
    A mate of mine used spacesaver tyres on the back of a FWD in a
    motorkhana a while back. They didnt last long but they sure put on a show!

    Default rcs wheels

    Dont know if this will help, but this is what I know.
    For the fuego,I bought a set of clio sport alloys from tempe tyres for $600, shod with prety new oe michi's. I had to get the grinder out on my stub axle casting to remove some spare casting,and wack the rear inner guards a bit but mostly they fitted.the offset was way off,though being 40 something MM(too far towards the center of car).
    I got new cheapies from TT,and tried to sell the wheels.Being buyers from the forum,I jacked up the first guys clio,did a quick fit, and they would have rubbed on the rear inner guard. the next guy to try, had a clio sport and they fitted like a glove. Sold..lesson learned,
    Dont put clio sport wheels on a fuego.
    clio's have different offset wheels from eachother

    Dealers were throwing away 14" steelies about a year ago. I got set for free, with a service. Had the spray painter at work paint them an acceptable metalic grey, and as of yet that is as far as i got.
    You shouldn't have to pay much for them.

    They don't last long though! Not that i've tried it or anything...

    Does anyone know if the standard Clio steel stockies actually fit the RS model? (ie. Offset and rolling diameter?) I want to get one to use as a spare for long trips. That can of glue just doesn't give me enough reassurance...

    I'm only taking a guess here, that the clio wheels would stick out too far and rub on the wheel arch lip.

    Wouldn't think they would clear the brake caliper on the front(haven't actually tried yet.), rear only for limp home or altering balance in motorkhana events on an RS

    maybe the 40's were cheaper at the time!
