    I broke my basket parking and can’t find a replacement.

    Does anyone know where I can find another one? New or used!

    I choke just typing the words, but JC Whitney has them:

    You can also try the ebay route, like this auction:

    I imagine mainstream autoparts stores like AutoZone, PepBoys and the like will have them in their stores.

    The problem will not be finding them, the problem will be matching what you have OR finding a set of five, if you want to use one on your spare tire.

    These links are both for plastic wheel covers.  Does anyone still offer metal wire covers?



    Try the new MG Magic site. I kow they have the wire baskets and sets. Google MG Magic for their new web site. They’re in San Diego now.

     My wire baskets looked fake to me I solved that fake look to my satisfaction by painting the ‘bell’ in hammered black and with the addition of trim rings I like the look ,, now i am thinking of painting the spokes GLOSS black like the new Morgans  Dan

    Dan, would you post a pic of your wheel covers.

    I have the real deal wires in a knock off rim but they need much TLC so I was thinking of running wheel covers till I can get these back in the shape they should be. I’d like to see what you and others have done.

    Ifyou go to my pictures you should see a collage of wheels
