My elder brother had a set of 100+ tornados on his corsa years back,he wrote the corsa off and 1 wheel was damaged beyond repair in sed accident,so i/my little brother COULD use these wheels (they wud really suit are cars and shud be cheap to get the full set on)

We have 2 WITH tyres
and 1 WITHOUT a tyre

The offset on these wheels is ET45,the offset for escorts is 36-41 (so they need spacing AT LEAST 4mm (how far can u space wheels without needing longer bolts/risking losing a wheel)

and is it possible to buy just one of these wheels from the company who make em?

theyre 7J16 and multifit (ford and vaux)

can't remember much about the scort but it applies to any car, bigger wider wheels or just spacing them out will create more pressure on the bearings, and you might find you will go throungh a few...... always try and fit longer studs if you going to space out the wheels. if in doubt count the threads as you wind a nut on. i would be happy with about 8 full turns rather that 3!

Pretty sure the offset works the other way.

If the wheels are +45 and the escort max is 41, then they will stick out 4mm more - may get away with some arch rolling confused

The lower the number the more the wheel sticks out of the arch (ET45 will be closer to the inner arch than ET36 (by nigh on 1cm) and ET12 are cossie offset (have u seen how much they stick out on non cossie arched cars)(hence proving "the lower the number the more they stick out")

NVM now,not worth the bother any1 with a corsa(or car that ET45 will fit) fancy 3x100+ tornados in the size stated above
