There is a wide variety of MGF wheels available which are a direct fit on TR7's. I fitted the original 15" 8 spoke on my 7 for the last 8 years and have had no problem obtaining replacement tyres (Continental 185/55) which have the same rolling diameter as the original tyres.

The multiple options available are shown on this web site:-

Wie ist das bei eurem TÜV (MOT) geregelt ? ...

No rules this side of the border, as long as it is fitted properly and works properly it is allowed.
It would be interesting if my Sprint powered and modified FHC would be tested by the TüV.
That car is far better and safer than when it left the factory but no ABE documents :mrgreen:

Sorry forgot: the Wolfrace wheels don't need spacers, though the ET is -13mm against the original -25mm. Widening the track a little.
1976 TR7 FHC (currently being restored ...)
1980 TR7 DHC (my first car, a.k.a. Kermette)
1981 TR7 FHC (Sprint engined a.k.a. 't Kreng)
