the rims are hard to dig out so i will try and find the info on the internets somewhere but i am definitely sure they are from a schimmy. any opinions on how they look on a t25? or do you prefer the more original look?

those are, indeed, the cylindrical shiners of the wheel variety.

OK so let's see....

There's obviously a bolt hole missing, so adapter plates will have to be made, as it's uncommon I doubt that they would be "off the shelf"

then there's the fact they are off a lightweight fibreglass car.. your van is double the weight of a scimitar I would wager, so the question would be would they colapse under cornering loads.

finaly the ET .. if you find it out , I'll bet its nowhere near a T25

Look nice though

lol ..

i've seen them on vans, but it's true as you say, they're lightweight alloys.

something to think about :S

You may have seen a van running on satsuma's but it doesn't mean it's right

Probably better to sell the Simitar wheels (I seem to remember hearing that they are quite hard to come by) and buy different alloys for the van. Just my tuppence worth.

As others have said, anything is possible wheel spacers/wheel adapters etc but there are a couple of question marks over these wheels that won't go away (load rating as in are they strong enough and PCD, is the offset suitable for a T3)
Given those issues it might be better to just sell them on and pick up something more suitable ie: merc ML wheels etc

hi
these wheels are defo not van spec..............i have machined many thousands of these over the years.

prob inset/ more than offset.....material is lm6 spec

had a guy convert a set once outside of spec/ he now resides behind the pearly gates.

just my opinion .but sell them and get the right spec rims.

Didn't the Reliant Scimitar have F0rd Cortina running gear ? I'll bet they were F0rd wheel hub assemblies. 100% certainly not weight rated for a camper.
