I know that Grassbank has done a lot of work on this. Their site is down at the moment but I have their wheel and hubs help guide which I can email to you if you PM me.

They have a couple of example cars which have nicely dished wheels which allows the spinners to sit inboard of the wheel rims. One is here

and another is here

They supply the wheels, hub adaptors, spinners and lead hammers. They can also supply the wheels in shiny chrome or paint them.

Hi  Madman, I've got knock ons on my 2fifty, they came from mws via ebay, a guy tried to fit them to a Triumph Stag!  I used reduced width hubs from Orson Engineering Nr Wolverhampton , they supplied the spinners to. I also reduced the rear track by fitting Z4 rear hubs and machined down 3 series rear discs, that way the wheels tuck  under the arches nicely. The wheel is 5 1/2 j x15 I think mws list them to fit AC cobra. Regards Mechman.
