Just bought a set of 13" minotaur (minilite style) for my s7 only to find they catch on the hand brake cable spring, looked on a locost site and someone had the same problem and was told that reduce the spring size and they fit then,plus also a 6mm spacer does the job as well,anyone know where to purchase the springs? Anyone had the same problem and got round it another way?

A couple of questions, what back brakes are you running?, and what offset ET number are the wheels. Most ford cars have run with 13inch wheels at some stage so I can't understand why you are having a problem. A photo would be useful.

Hi running capilers at the back(pretty sure standard sierra),not sure on the ET number,wheels came off a caterham, whether they use a smaller caliper,Just got a pair of 10mm spacers to try to see if it clears,so (weather permitting) will have another look over the weekend and try to get some pictures

Just been out to the shed to look at the wheels they don't have no ET stamped on them,only thing I can see is on 3 spokes is "01 02 03 "not even a name, thought they were minotaurs!must be a replica of a replica .
