Just wondering if you can have too many wheels and tyres.
I still have 2 sets of TR6 steel wheels in the shed somewhere too.


on the left are my road legal but soft low profile sprint tyres. Lots of acceleration but not that higher speed. As I have a 4.1 diff now.

on the right are a set of second hand well used Avon CR6zz that I plan to use at aintree sprint as that is a fast circuit sprint and the low profiles and 4.1 diff will just not be fast enough.

In the middle are my vredestiens sprint classic “everyday road tyres”

And my skinny old spare that fits in the spare wheel slot.

collected over a few years and at relatively little cost. The wheels have been ÂŁ150 to ÂŁ200 a set and the tyres have been cheap too.

the sprint ones are on ready for 3 sisters sprint tomorrow.

I used to have a TR3A & TR4 and four sets of tires/wheels to pass around (steel spa white, steel silver, wires and JAP Magna).

When I was small I had a toy car (Schuco) with extra wheels and tiny knock-offs - that is what probably started me down that path.

Mostly gone now - the TR3A & 2 sets of wheels to Argentina, the JAPs to the east coast and the wind-up Schuco to my little nephew.
