Re: GTD knock on wheels?

Simon,

I'm using Vintage Wheel for a while and quite happy with them. They produce wheels in South Africa, so the wheels had been sent from there.

Thanks

Picture attached.

Some of the wheels available do not have the correct approvals for use on European roads.

Thanks

Re: GTD knock on wheels?

Hi Simon,

I have the vintage wheels and adapter on GTD standard for more than 10 years and it works perfectly.
I had 17 inches wheels but changed back to the original i.e.: 15'.
Āvon tires 245 front and 295 rear.
I had 2 times a serious exit at Spa and the last time I killed 2 wheels agains the wall in the Raidillon.
The bolt on adapters on the GTD part are still intact !
I know Frank has his view on safety about the bolton and I respect his view as well.

Good luck in your choice.

Fred

Re: GTD knock on wheels?

I've been hit on the Le Castellet track last year. It destroyed a wheel and a tire (and ruined my paint job). I was happy to have 3 pieces wheels, as, after a careful checking, only the outer rim appeared to be damaged and had to be changed, which was not so expensive... (not to mention the price of a new avon tire and of a complete paint job !)
