Default P1800 Upgraded Wheel Sizing

Hi

I'm in the UK modding a 1970 P1800 and currently struggling to find many wheels in the right fitment.

I'm looking for a 17x7 or 7.5J, 5x108 ET10-20 wheel.

Any recommendations?

Cheers.

When I bought some affordable lightweight wheels. I bought a set of Team Dynamics wheels which are part of this company in the UK. http://www.rimstock.com

Plus there is compomotive. https://www.comp.co.uk.

You will find a lot more wheels if you're willing to use spacers, that's what I did for my 122. 20 or 25 mm puts you right in all the FWD offset range.

Thanks.
Yeah appreciate that, am just trying to avoid spacers if I can.
Can find a few ET30 wheels. Need to test fit them really and take it from there...

1970 1800s use 140 offset.

You're right I'm obviously not getting it, as a 40/43 offer would be all wrong.

Stretch some 165's and you'll be fine.

That's odd, because I have a 1972 1800 suspension in my 122 and it's identical to the 66 122 suspension offset (which should be identical to the 66 1800 offset). I needed spacers to run FWD wheels anywhere close to the fender.
