13 inch rims

I am looking to replace my 14 rims, with the following Revolution 4 spoke, 13x6 et 24 with 185/60 13 and rears 13x7 et 24 with 205/60 13. This should give the same rear diameter as 185/60 14 and drop the front by around 13 mm.  I'm not quite sure what the correct et is for the rear? there seem to be plenty clearance behind the the rear wheel. I am assuming the Caterham suppled Two Gates Minilites have an et of 24

Thanks, the 13x7 et 24 is listed as a Caterham/ Westfield fitment, but there seem to be so many variables. You can have any offset you like. It looks like there is more space behind the the wheel than at the arch. I don't forsee a problem it is only 13mm either side. I am assuming that all Caterham rear arches are the same dimensions

I'd message 7WOW for some input.

the revolution 4 spokes, what front brakes do you have? Std caterham cars or any uprated 4 pots? If the latter you'll need the revolution competition rim as the inside shoulder of the std wheel fouls the calliper.

What car are these going on?

You called.... Byebye

I run the 4 spoke lightweight race rimes from Revolution, 6.5x13 up front shod with 185/60/13 and 8x13 rears shod with 205/60/13 R888R's

Running HiSpec Ultralite 4 pots at the front and 2 pot SVA at rear both with 9" discs all round.

We do get a club discount with them, speak to Warren he is very knowledgeable with which offsets fit Caterhams etc Thumb Up

Thanks, I'm running the standard brakes, they seem perfectly adequate with upgraded pads. They are going on a 1995 car with Sierra rear calipers and the Spitfire front caliper.
