Hi Mike,

I believe the wheels are M38 but I'm not sure, The previous owner put new wheel rims and tyres on her not long after purchasing it, I think because the original tyres were totally ruined.

I will be looking for the correct one piece rims, but the tyres should do ok!

She was discovered earlier this year, and apparently was literally hours away from being scrapped! Thankfully she was rescued by the chap I bought her from, and since Thursday of last week has been safely indoors for the first time in years.
