Re: Staggered Rial rims: what tire sizes? and what center caps?

The centercaps that came with the wheels are garbage and cracked from the time. What centercaps should I use for those Rials? Internal diameter is about 58 mm if measured by clips, but seems like centercaps I can source either bigger or smaller.

Re: 16x7 BBS Mahle w/tires

Have the same rims and on the hunt for center caps. I assume they're 58 mm diameter at the mounting clips? Anyone can suggest the source?

That adapter is for a top bolted canister on a later motor, not a bottom bolted one. A very fair price for what Val is offering.
Thanks, Bert!
Selling to fund some other projects, if it will not sell I will keep it for my engine. Love the flexibility to use different filters.

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Hi Val, Engine looks great. I'm in the process of rebuilding the M30 with upgrades after blowing the head gasket @ Watkins Glen. I also had the big stuff powder coated. I'm doing the small stuff in my little oven. I'll post photos of some stuff when I can. Bob V Bob, can't wait to see your work. I ...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Those rials are beautiful. Do you mind if I ask what paint you used to paint your intake manifold? Or if there was any special prep you did? Thanks! Rials need refinishing and I am torn between them and Remotecs, love both. Intake was powder-coated, I don't remember # of the color, but it was alumi...

Staggered Rial rims: what tire sizes? and what center caps?

Got myself a staggered set of 16" Rial rims: 16x7 ET23 and 16x8 ET11 with 205-55-R16 and 225-50-R16 old tires that should be replaced. The tires mounted now are useless and should be replaced. What would be the recommended size? The current setup seems a little small for the car? https://i.postimg.c...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Wow, looks very nice Val. Definitely more than an oil change! Just time for a refresh or a necessary repair? Well, the engine was leaking oil from the day one I've got the sixer and leaks were getting worse with the time. At some point I've decided that it would be easier just to overhaul the engin...

Re: '86 Canadian Bronzit-Beige

Ireland Engineering exhaust developed some droning on lower RPMs, but even without it, it was a bit too loud to my taste. So the time came to change it on something quieter. The budget choice was Walker 47656 with Amazon sourced two Superior 28-2121 1.75" x 9" Silentips. https://s19.postimg.cc/tn07i...
