Colin ran 200x580 15" Wheels. P.C has had a few big wheeled 'scorts, i think that one had 16" front 18" rears.
Tend to agree that 13" wheels dont look right anymore.

BTW Colin retired with a cracked diff, P.C ribbed him that he should have fitted a stronger 8 1/2" diff, but i think it was a hit on a road compression at speed.

Escorts always looked a little peculiar with 13" when on slicks.

But (IMHO) they still look right in 13" with big fo knobblies and minilites 8)
