I have another set to be refurbished to fit to Mrs MB's Classicasseur SE, to replace the Connoisseur seven spokes currently fitted.

That Mk1 Fur coat and no knickers car needs a set of banded steel wheels on it, forget 11 spokes, and leave those to the discerning Mk2 owner

They're the same size as fitted to fork spokes Mick, and Connoisseur seven spokes are even better as you don't need to paint them from liquid silver to silver sparkle
