Very nice, but if I'm honest I prefer the original look.

Nice but prefer the original look too.

To keep the original look though, surely 15” pepperpots should be made now?

Obviously you can get 15" pepperpot-style wheels, but they don't look quite right. What we need is an exact copy of the design of the 13" versions. .

+1 for 15" Pepper pots. I went from 15" brookalike wheels to 13" Pepper pots to regain a bit of originality but would have gone for 15" Pepper pots if they had been available.

That would probably mean another set of wheels I would have to get :?
