Cheviot Hotwires came out in silver, gold & I think black as well. I used to have a gold set on a VJ Valiant back in 1981. Don't know how long they were for sale after that, but your set may be fom the '80's.

The lost centres were either Cheviot or Aunger, same company based here in Adelaide, one factory was at Salisbury South, the other at Elizabeth West, can't remember who bought out who.

lol you dont want to know....

sounds pretty dodgy but cos its a front wheel drive i pulled the handbrake on, put a choc infornt of the left side wheel and put a jack stand under the right side, before jacking up the i tested and made sure the handbrake could hold, by giving it a few herbs as i released the clutch, after confirming the car was going nowhere i put the jack stand under the side, started the car slowly relesaed the clutch and walla, one spinning wheel, got the wet and dry sand paper out then finished with autosol. then rotate wheels.

the before and after shot is actually front wheel back wheel
