    Spitfire wheels

    I keep seeing different Spitfire wheels for sale on various site/platforms. Obviously there are different designs for different MK's. Has anyone got or can supply pictures of which designs were fitted to which MK's.
    Also can any helps with the identification of the attached wheels. The serial numbers shown are AH10025/2 and S7362.


    Many thanks

    Your wheels are Master/Martinet.

    Got a pair of n.o.s. tyres for it if you're interested.

          Better than my Spitfire in the garden, they are dressed up Fiat Yugo wheels.

          ...so, if you have a Yugo, look no further, swap?

            Yugo wheels are probably rarer than Spitfire wheels!

              Didn't they used to put wheel clamps on Yugo's to prevent people stealing wheel clamps, or was that Lada's?

                  What kind of money do Spit mains sell for these days?
                  If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

                    Prices of Spitfire wheels

                    Prices tend to vary based on condition and Types.
                    For my own part I have purchased pairs of wheels and paid anything from 120 a pair to 400.
                    I recently took a pair of wheels to ATS tyre services as they were flat. They charged me 25 per tyre to have new tubes fitted which I thought was quite good
                    Hope this helps
