    I also would like a set of Rostyles standard or modified Rostyles to 7" wide would be great as well .....
    but realise theyd be very rare to find  .....  I wonder if any firm is reproducing them ?????

    these guys were ok, good service.

    I bought a set of 13x6 gunmetal versions of their minilight last year.
    Unfortunately they will be too small for my current project and are largely unused.
    Where are you based?
     
    Being a wheel wh*re I have a set of genuine rostyles also, which I was also considering getting banded
     
    Has anyone bought Compomotive wheels either here is Aus or from Uk?
    Exchange rate still needs to drop a little, but i cant see it happening anytime soon....

    Compomotive wheels I bought a set over 20yrs ago for my mk2 coup ,I bought the MO 5 spoke in white not the ML minilite style tho. Bought direct from Peter Lloyd in UK they were a hefty £67ea for 7x15 and £71 for 8x15, no vat or import duty. Hate to think what they cost now

    The 7s will fit without a problem if running the usual 195x50 rubber but doubt the 8s would fit without arch mods.
    Usual rule is what fits Escort generally fits mk1 Capri is same offset for the given wheel size etc. From memory Escort with 15x7 is best with -12 to -18mm offset .

    + positive offset 15-18

    Negative will stick out a bit far.

    For my simmons i found 15x7 +15ish was perfect
