    Hi Jim, yes I remember your Senta's, unfortunately DGT don't do them anymore If you check your PM's, I messaged a week or so ago.

    Can I ask why you fitted hub spacers and did you have 255/30's on the rear?

    Will that be 1 or 2 bottles of Scotch Philip?

    Hi Jagary, sorry no message received in my inbox?
    I would've replied....

    I see they are no longer for sale on their website.
    That said, the new owner of my car called them just a month or so ago rather than check their website. He wanted another set to use as a "good" summer set relegating the originals to a winter setup.

    They said they could still get them for him at that time. Did you check their website or call them?
    If checked on website, might be worth a phone call.

    Tyres fitted were standard 255 / 35 / 20"

    The reason , as stated that I fitted hubcentric wheel spacers, was that the originals just sat "too inboard" for my liking, even with the standard wheels. I was after a more "fitted / flush" look filling the arches and the spacers helped me achieve this.

    Just checked and found a couple of more pics and edited to try and help show you the difference.....



    I've managed to edit 2 pics together almost from exactly the same angle, better showing the difference before and after



    Hopefully you can see that extra 13mm or so either side REALLY fills the arches much better

    Thanks Jim, I only looked on their website so better give them a call. I think you said they were copies so do they call them Senta's?

    I thought that my Takoba's were 8.5J all round but, having seen your pic with the wheel spacers on, my rears seem to protrude just as much as yours.
