I have a set of mini lite replicas (Moss 456-055) that are like new. These have the Triumph logo on the hubs. They even still have the Moss stickers on the inside of the rims. Not sure about the age of the Michelins. Comes with all lugs. Asking $400. Shipping will be additional. I live in Washington state. I am near a Greyhound station, which is normally the cheapest shipping I have found.

They are 185 HR 15 XVS. I am not sure how to tell the date of the tires, but it has "DOT FXTK A2EX444" on the side. It also has "49H 06-704-01"

Do you still have them for sale? Another question. They won't bolt up unless the shorter wire wheel lugs are removed from the hubs, right (a job for the rear hubs)?

I still have them for sale. I pulled these of of a TR6 I just bought. I am not familiar with wire wheels at all. All I know is that that they need the same standardized lugs that the stock wheels use. Do you need me to measure the length of the studs?

I am interested in the Minilites. I live in Kennewick. Are you close?

Sorry, but not that close. I live in Rochester, just south of Olympia. I looked it up and it appears to be about 190 miles. I would be willing to meet you as far north as Tacoma.

I have had a couple of people interested, but then they never replied back. Are you still interested? My only concern about shipping them to Colorado is how to get them to you without getting them scratched. I thought about placing cardboard over both sides of each wheel face, cutting out plywood circles to cover both sides and then run tape over them.

Yes, very interested, I was just ready to order a new set.

Lets start with some good photos of each side of each wheel as I only have the one photo you posted above that is small and not very well focused.
I think the shipping cost was right at $100 to Colorado Greyhound station if I recall, but also FedEx ground is cheap too.

You can email me the photos to StagByTriumph@Triumphstagclub.org

Thanks!

My iPad takes horrible pictures. I will use my wife's phone tomorrow to take pics of each side and send them to your email address.

Re: SOLD !! Minilite replicas with Michelin tires $400

Hi,
Do you still have these wheels available for sale? Pls contact me: tdeska@comcast.net

Hey Opie1,

these were SOLD! I purchased them

After a lot of issues - NOT caused by the seller, with Greyhound Package Express (GPX) lasting about 4-5 weeks, these are now proudly displayed on my TR250.
I did however move the very vintage Michelin XAS to my steel wheels for some authenticity.

It was an excellent value for the price, and I was extremely happy with the purchase! When I received the wheels I was very surprised no one local grabbed them - their loss, my gain!!

My thanks to Kevin for his excellent packaging of these like new wheels!

Cheers!

StagByTriumph,

Thanks for the reply! Glad they worked out well for you. Great value and a great look! (
I was hoping to put them on the '63 TR4 I'm in the process of buying.)

Cheers!
