They both look as nice as each other :thumbsup: , you are very lucky to have two sets. Are going to sell the set that you're leaving off the car? Personally I like the top set of wheels.

Straights.

But why do you have to choose?

Keep a set for winter with appropriate tyres on. ;)

The Straights look a lot better Dave suits the car more.

IMO the grids look better on a MK2.

I will be keeping both sets, Gridspokes are a doddle to keep clean, you can get your hand through the spokes to keep the rest of the wheel clean. Both sets suffer minor kerbing, but not something i cannot live with short/mid term. I do like the centres on the straights, thanks to russ there ;)

Just had a count up of what I have in my neighbours garage. ( not including what is on the car at the moment) :em: :em: :em:

8 gridspokes (7 with tyres of varying depth :em: three of them suffering from parking by feel procedure from the wife. Always nerside front Always :? , how does she do that? :D )
4 straights ( the straights need a refurb and have 235/40/18 tyres on, gives them very similar profile to the 225 with just a little extra width).
Then i have 3 spare 235/40/18 tyres as well, need to get on ebay me thinks :gmc: Good job the missus hasn't a key to the garage ;)

Why not put one type one on one side, one type on the other? Then you can have both !!

Just to throw my opinion in so I don't feel left out... :em: :gmc:

I too agree with Russ in that the straights look better on the Mk1 shape of car whereas the Gridspokes seem to work better on a Mk2 MG rather than a Rover.

Both sets look smart IMO Dave. Still got my straights. ;) Have you driven on the 235 /40's? Is there a noticable difference ?

Absolutely agree, the straights look superb and I would have had a set myself, when I put my Meteors on had it not been for cleaning restrictions. I have no access to a mains water supply here, and know from experience you really need a 'power' washer to keep those 'fine spokes' effervescent?

A 5 litre hand pumped, water filled crop sprayer, keeps the broad faced 17's at parade ground readiness though!
