Demon Tweeks list Compromotive ML('ML' for MiniLite I guess), in a 6x14 at £88.50 a piece.  I'd enquire about Offsets though, it doesn't list stud PCD either.  Hope it helps.

I've just ordered those exact wheels in 14x6!

Got mine from performancealloys.com

May I compliment you on your impeccable taste!

ET38 mate.

Just need tyres, thinking 185/50 yoki's or 195/45 toyo's

Had the yoki's on my 15's but thought they weren't the best in the wet have heard really good things about toyo's so might give them a go.

Thoughts anyone?

Yeah Toyo`s seem tops from what i`ve read so thats what will be going on mine.
When you`ve got them fitted with new alloy`s then post up a pic coz it may stop me trying to find some 14" bbs ra`s.

Not a lot, an inch or so? Would barely describe them as 'dished' really - not like the picture you posted or the ATS cups they're replacing!

Prob to do with the high -ve offset compared to something like a mk2 escort?

Can't do pics I'm afraid as not got the requisite technology (only got t'internet at work at the mo for a start) but looking to sort that sooner rather than later.

Will try and do some before/after pics once I get paid and can afford some rubber!

Hope that helps?

What do you think about continental sc2 in 185/50?
It's a bit more expensive than the yoko's but i think that they are the best tyre in the 185/50/14 size...

Cheers, Alex
