Default Change of wheels on the 75

Had a change of wheels on my dad's 75. Changed the Serpents for my old refurbished 11 spokes. Serpents are my favorite wheels for a 75 followed by meteors but I find on the mkii models the serpents look a bit small. So since I changed my wheels for 19's on my ZT-T, I've fitted my old refurbed 11 spokes to the 75, think they suit it much better

Best wheels by far.
They suit your 75 very well.

I would normally much prefer the Serpents (well, I would, wouldn't I ), but I must admit the 11 spokes match the premium grill way better that the Serpents. Good choice!

11 spokes are my favourite wheel for Mk2 75s or ZTs
They look great Rick

I love 11 spokes, they are my all time favourite wheel, much nicer than Apex, Straights, Serpents, Meteors, even Crowns.

They do not however suit a Mk1 at all, they are without a shadow of a doubt a Mk2 wheel.



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

Looking good, me likey. Go well with the colour and the premium bumper. In my eyes the only better wheel for the 75 is the Vortex, but they're not exactly common, or cheap for that matter.
