    Default 13x8 Superlight wheels wanted

    Does anybody know where I can find some 13x8 Superlight style wheels for my 92 Caterham, I believe they are 4x108 bolt spacing. Also looking for a full width aero screen if anybody is looking to sell one. Thanks

    Good morning. There are lots of Caterham superlight wheels over the years. The 2007 onwards models are for sale on the Caterham website. For 1992 I think they were Mike Barnby wheels? The business is still around in the UK and you can order direct. http://www.mb-racingwheels.com/

    If they are not the right wheels, please post a photo so we can better understand the exact style you are searching for.

    So I have the 6 inch wide wheels on front and back and just want to fill out the arches on the back with some wider rubber, if I could find some 8" ones that look close enough to the fronts it would save me replacing all 4. If anybody has a used set of front and rear wheels I would be interested too, thanks!

    Hi Croc, I tried to post a picture of the front wheels but I am looking for the Minilite style wheels, I think in England there was a company called Superlight or Superlite maybe that made them with a nice polished lip. Thanks, Jonathan

    I was thinking Caterham superlight car original equipment wheels. But you wanted the aftermarket wheel. Got there eventually! Here is the UK website http://www.superlite-wheels.co.uk/

    Hi Croc, I was able to find some 13 x 7 wheels on Ebay that really fill up the rear arches nicely! I did have to get 4 so if anybody else is looking for a pair I have 2 brand new in the box, $250 for the pair including shipping in the US!
