i got a set of these rims off subie jim in maple ridge and i've looked on here a couple times but never been able to find these...

they are 6 spoke alloys (very odd especially for 'back' then) and they look like they say JPC on the center cap... dunno though, have a look for yourself... also they have 'Made in England' stamped into them...

while fairly curb rashed these are still sweet rims IMO... and i was amazed when i had gotten those tires off... they are only like 5lbs each...

they'll need some cleaning and whatnot but they are deffinatly going on the car!

i wonder if you could wet sand them, maybe with lik 550-650 grit sand paper? that way you could polish them afterwards, and it would cut down the scuffs.

Grrr! I wish I'd seen those at Jim's before you got to them! But then again, I think they'll look better on a vintage Brat than a Loyale!!

hehe... another guy wanted the rims so i went out one weekend and took them off and hid them behind the camper...:D

i went and picked them up the next weekend...

i saw the way you looked at them rider... you had that glint in your eyes and your hand reaching for a 19mm rachet and the other hand for your wallet!:-p

lol...but you DID walk away from jim's with a super nice loyale... well actually you drove away...;)
