-And so they had 15" minilites.14"minilites were fitted to some Police P6s 
for the same reason .I was offered a set 20 years ago for 50 quid,the guy 
selling had 14" P6 wheels and 15"SD1 wheels.I regret not buying a set but I 
would have had to get them back to NZ from the UK.Incidentally, brake 
cooling is not often given as a reason for putting alloys on cars but in my 
experience that ,and with it the reduction in pad and disc wear, is good 
reason,on it's own, for fitment of alloys .
