Alloy Wheel Rim - replica of "Roues Resin"
Aluminium copy of original "Roue Resin" wheel rim for SM.
Suitable for use on SM or DS / ID, complete with nuts and centre cap.
The weight of these rims is only 7.2kg, so much lighter than original D or SM steel rims.
6.0J x 15 - suitable for tyre width 180 to 205. Suitable for tubeless use provided a tubeless type tyre is fitted, otherwise a tube must be fitted.
Please note the following fitment information in conjunction with the photos:
SM: Models before November 1971 need later drive shafts or must modify existing ones for these wheel to fit. After 11/71 wheels should fit straight on OK. This is due to the different drive shaft flange design where the wheel sits, see photo. The new reproduced CV joint type drive shafts are OK for these rims. These rims fit the rear of SM models after March 1972, but may be used with our spacer rings on the earlier models. (Please note that in all cases, there must be a minimum of 14mm flat area between the wheel stud and the step in the hub flange for these wheels to fit without modifications)
DS / ID: Suitable for saloons with post 1969 rear wings and Safari models (obviously must have the 5 stud hubs!). Models before January 1972 need to have the later drive shafts fitted or modify the existing drive shafts. The new reproduced CV joint type drive shafts are OK for these rims. All D models require spacers (supplied) to be fitted to the rear for these wheels to work, due to the shape of the hub and brake drum. Rear wing clearance may need to be adjusted, depending on individual car, but we are running them on the rear OK with 180 XAS tyres and still have clearance.
