I know they would be ridiculous for the street, but I love the center-lock wheels.

I'm curious. I've heard they are horrible to work with. Is there a reason you love them other than aesthetics?
TIA
Aesthetics only. I have two other cars with center-lock (wire) wheels. I love the look.

…….How often do they old wheels need trying?
I assume you mean truing?

I have a home-made fixture and I check my MGB wire wheels (14") every couple of years. I only drive it about 500 miles a year. Once they have some miles on them, they rarely seem to change.
I checked my MG Midget wires (13") about five years ago but I rarely drive it so it not really as much of an issue.

My friends with the taller, skinny wire wheels (like on MG-TCs) must watch them more carefully especially if they are racing them.
What I'd love for my MGB is the steel Dunlop knock-off wheels (see photo). I think they are the Bee's Knees.

Again, this is just all for looks.
Regular cast aluminum wheels (like the Panasports I have on my MG race car) are much stronger and better.

Totally bada$$! Wow! Despite my love of bright colors, I think black is perfect for this beast. If true, the PDK as the only transmission further indicates our 6MT may not be able to handle a large jump in power.
