Hey guy's,

I've been looking around to see what wheels exists for the R4 3 bolt pattern.
I know there is Momo, Fergat, Gordini and a couple of Steel ones. I have both the ones that comes on the 70s and 80s with the original center caps but not the emblems.

What I am trying to understand, is if anyone has created with a already existing set of wheels or if there is somewhere someone selling some sort of spokeless smoothies wheels? They would stay nice on my ongoing project :D

Thanks!

Eventually just going trim rings and better hubcaps on mine, but earlier searched for something similar to chrome smoothies that would fit, like retro, short of a visit to a chroming company with a set of standard steels and hubcaps so that the chrome finish matched the only visually similar thing I could find were these :-

Seller does list other ‘ Moon ‘ style trims, about as close to the 50s-60s smoothie style I could find that would fit, not wheels but would look as close as and give good reason for a ‘ Moon ‘ logo sticker or two..

They are too concave. And it would look nice If I could use the original hubcaps with the emblem. But actually, It is a good idea using a full hubcap for that purpose. Thanks!

No worries. Are they full wheels or hubcaps? Custom made?
Just share some pics for ideas :P
And thanks!

Another idea, but finding a set could prove troublesome....

Unsure of diameter, but they look the part.

This is one of the wheels but they are very badly pitted presumably they must have had a centre cover at one time never seen any like them before

They do ‘look’ like the bare rims from the 70s-80s that used to run wire baskets and centres to look like wire knock ons.
Never seen Renault stud pattern ones, but they did seem to be available for everything at the time, from yank sleds to various period kit-cars.
