Replica Kent Wheels from Italy

Postby DoubleBill » Tue Aug 07, 2018 1:24 pm

I was googling Kent Alloys and found a company in Italy that produces replica alloys for many classic cars from the 60's-80's including Kents. At less that £800 a set of four these look to be good value assuming they are good quality and indistinguishable from the originals.

Has anyone had any experience or contact with them?

They look good quality and polished too !!. It would be nice if they did them in a 7j and 16/17 inch...

I supplied my XJ for a photoshoot recently with Quentin Wilson. He commented that the Kent alloys are definitely 'the' wheel for a series XJ and he knew that they are being reproduced by the Italian company. However, I have yet to come across anyone who has actually bought them. Mike.
