A Princess for the sporty gent

Post by Finchyman » Sat Feb 08, 2020 4:05 pm

Finally got around to buying new tyres for the Stag alloys and fitting them to the Princess. Makes quite a difference and met with approval from my 11 year old, so job done.

Looks well on those. The colour of the car seems to make them work better than they have on other Princesses that have worn the same wheel.

Another view from the side. I agree I wouldn't have put the Stag wheels on it unless it was black/chrome.

I’m intrigued why Adrian thought it might be a Photoshop!

I thought it might be a photoshop because I had no idea that the stud pattern on the Princess and Triumph was even remotely compatible !
And yes the vehicle in question does look VERY NICE !!
I have been very surprised to learn recently about the commonality of the stud pattern across the Austin/Morris/Triumph range of this era. Ambassador alloy wheels look very good on a Maxi !!

Thank you Adrian. A number of people have put Stag wheels on their Princess. I’ve never been very keen on them personally preferring the Ambo alloys but, as Ian says, they go extremely well with the black and chrome of his stunning car.
