Most British cars were originally fitted with painted wire wheels. Chrome wheels were a popular option, but the stove-enameled look may be what you want to set your car apart on the show field. Painted wire wheels were used on all competition cars, and they can add a more correct, purposeful look for vintage race cars and other high-performance machines.
MWS Dunlop style painted wire wheels have a very high corrosion resistance. Before being painted, they are primer-coated using Cathodic Electrophoretic Technology, popularly known as &electro or &e-coat. The silver-grey paint topcoat combines with the primer to give the wheel a salt-spray resistance of 840 hours when tested per ASTM standards. Painted wheels have a one year cosmetic and two year structural warranty.
Each MWS Dunlop style chrome wire wheel has a rim and shell which are polished in special-purpose machines, then hand-polished by skilled craftsmen. To enhance the corrosion resistance, microporous nickel plating is done prior to chrome-plating. The product conforms to the stringent International Standards ISO 1456-1988 specifications. The spokes and nipples are chrome-plated stainless steel for brightness and long life. Chrome wheels have a two year cosmetic and three year structural warranty.
All wire wheel nipples are silicone sealed at the rim to keep water out, a common complaint on lesser quality wheels.
Wire wheels require special balancing procedures.
