Looks lovely Chris.
Are they TR6 wheels?

Hi Dark Star,
My SE3 has the same wheels (although more "patinated" than Chris's :shock: ) and they are indeed TR6.

Yep, TR6 steels. I have various wheels for the Sabre including a set of chrome wires, but I have the steels on at the mo as I've been doing a bit of road rallying recently and the wires are not really the right choice for that.

Incidentally Philip, it was your Sabre (when it was in Richard Prosser's hands) which made me think that a secondhand set of TR6 wheels would be just the job for sprints/hillclimbs/rallying etc. Currently shod with a half-decent set of Vredestein 185/70R15 Sprint Classic boots btw.
