Ken - great pic's. It gives you ideas of what different rim and tire set-ups look like as I keep on thinking what mine would look like with panasport wheels.

Saw this on social media yesterday. I asked about the sizing/offset and got this :

"16x8+10 with 1" spacer in the front (so -15.4mm offset). Also made adjustable UCAs to fit wheels. Rears are 16x8+10 with a 1/4" spacer (+4mm). Rears need a 1" spacer instead to match fronts. Tires are Dunlop Direzza DZ102 in 225/50/16"

Wheels are ROTA GRID. Probably not for everyone, but I think it looks very interesting.

1968 Triumph TR250 "TRminator"
Just joined this group, looks like a great group of car lovers here. I have owned my TR250 since 1980 and did a basic restoration back in 1984. I drove the car for 4 years and then parked it in the garage where it sat until 2013 when my brother, who just retired from the auto repair business, said we should take the car to his place in florida, where he has a nicely equipped shop, and restore it. Didn't have to ask me twice. I would go down for 2 months at a time, which was probably stretching my wifes patience, and work on the car. after 3 such visits the car was completed. We did a complete frame off, nut and bolt, rotisserie restoration on it. Every inch of it was renewed, repaired or replaced. The car is a stunner and gets rave reviews at shows.

Love what you did with the exhaust --- 4 pipes out the back is quite common, but placing them like that is very unique for our cars. Love to get a shot for the underside; did you modify the trunk floor to allow more room for the exhausts or do something else?

Inquiring minds . . .

Obviously not Monza exhaust, (didn't sound like it in the vid for sure), so what are they? Nice neat job for sure. Now I clearly see you gas tank in the wheel well, but what is the box type thing under the tank?

Going to be interesting to see it completed for sure. Please keep the pics coming . . .
