Over the years, our wire wheels have evolved through the incorporation of new technology and superior materials, changing with the times without compromising the classic style. All our MWS Dunlop Wire Wheels are covered by warranty periods of up to three years.
Wire wheel finish
The rim and shell are polished to superior finish in special purpose machines. The hand polishing by highly skilled craftsmen compliments this. The nickel plating is done by the Dunlop method, in which a decorative bright nickel layer is plated over a strong inner semi-bright layer of nickel. The surface finish is enhanced by using technologically latest levelling brightness. To enhance the corrosion resistance, micro porous nickel plating is done prior to chrome plating.
Spokes
All our chrome wire wheels are built with stainless steel spokes and nipples.
Fitting instruction
Every centre lock wire wheel comes with fitting instruction to assist in solving problems that are commonly encountered when balancing centre lock wire wheels on an electronic balancer.
Competition wire wheels
For running our competition wire wheels modifications on the front and rear wings will be necessary.
Painted wire wheels
Our painted wire wheels are primer coated by first using Cathodic Electrophoretic Technology. This increases the corrosion resistance to very high levels. An overcoat of silver grey resp. black follows this.

In the case of wire wheels for classic cars from the 1950s onwards, a distinction is made between wheel type 42 and 52.The wheel type designation refers to the maximum size of outer wheel bearing, in millimetres, which can be used with that hub.
The actual hub diameter is measured across the outside of the splines on the car and not the wheel itself. This is 62.5 mm for the 42 wheel type and 73 mm for the 52 wheel type.
