Here is a website for Diamond Racing Wheels. The have strong light weight wheels in various diameters with 4x4 bolt pattern available. If you want a choice of wheels for your Jensen that favor function rather than fashion this is the place.

I saw some Superlites on Ebay with 13 mm offset I thought they had to be 3/4 in (19mm)

how do you do it colinw59  ?



Also, saw these, but am leery of buying used wheels, particularly magnesium. Great Looking Though, Tough looking color.

Anyone else use Diamond wheels?  These look pretty nice for 50 bucks or so a pop.  I even like the looks of them.

Has anyone considered the 14X6 Superlights as an upgrade to the stock wheels? They appear to come in 4X4 bolt pattern, 12mm+ offset. With a 205/60/14 tire they'd fill out the wheelwells like the stock 185/70/13. Comments, anyone? Thanks!

JH wheels look better than any of these and are light alloy to boot. Anyhow, most of these cars are pretty rare now or like the MG midget have 4 1/2" width.

WOW! 4.5"?? thats not much bigger than my mountain bike!

One thing about a list like this is that it doesn't give offset numbers either.

Just looking for a make/model vehicle that would interchange with a Jensen that a local wheel shop could actually have in the book and look up.

The Vega wheels do actually fit a JH, I removed the original JH wheels off a car and put on the steel Vega wheels to send the car to the crusher, no experience with the others.

The local wheel shop is called The Club Store. Just click on it and get some 15" Minilite style wheels that fit.

I always thought these would look good on a J-H. It's a VTO Retro 4, an American Racing Libre reproduction but sadly not available in 4x4" bolt circle.

Hahaha, we had some similar ones on one of our racecars a long time ago. When I got the JH those wheels came to mind, couldnt find them though. Then this weekend I was reading Classic Motorsports and bang saw an add in the back.

I think I am going to shoot for the polished on black, I was told they came in 4x4?

You may want to hit up Jim @ Delta. He distributes the VTO wheels and often has very good prices on them.

Huh. VTO doesn't show a 4x4 bolt circle, but if they are available inthat pattern I might be trading my 14x6 Minilites in...

I got refurbished original wheels from Wheel Collision Center. I am returning my cores tomorrow in the same boxes the "new" ones came in. Check out their order number WCC1512 at http://www.wheelcollision.com Their picture is better than any I could take. Mine look every bit as good as the one pictured. I am in love with my J-H all over again.
