good morning all,

yesterday saw me get stuck into clearing the shed. i have 5 Appliance 14 x 6 slot mags, but cant find an ET marking on the wheel. does anyone know where I might uncover it, or were they never stamped/cast?

i want to sell them but would like to advertise them with as much information as possible. i bought them a while ago and now no longer need them.

pictures below if it helps.

many thanks, Ian.

If it is made of nuts and bolts I WILL take it apart..... going back together is a whole different ball game

Measure the distance between the hub mounting face and each rim, then subtract one from the other.

morning,

measurements below (may be mm out due to wheel condition etc) so i think i am right with ET of 13mm + or 0.5 inch +? positive number as the hub mounting surface is nearer the outer wheel lip.

i think i have this right. Bear of little brain. Ian.

I think you need near zero offset for a 6J rim on a GTE (the Wolfies on the 6a have a slight positive/out offset of about 3.5mm) otherwise you touch the top wishbones on lock. Nothing some spacers can't fix..but it depends on the actual rim design to an extent.

hmmm... i was assured they came straight off a Scim when i got them.. but dont believe everything you are told i guess. i will remeasure (got one at work today).

this is why i wanted to be sure of my measurements before i put them up for sale. as you spacers are no issue but need to be factored in.

i will place on sale here first, if no takers then onto Ebay.

thanks, Ian.

A test fit would confirm too?

test fit it is! good idea!

so off to the SE5a project, wheels and spacer off at the front.... series of pictures below. they fit without fouling on both locks. maybe for peace of mind and depending on tyre you may want a little more room with a 5-10mm spacer? but look fine.
thanks all, Ian.
