Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler!

Just the front wheels, I know the seller and asked if a full set would be available and had no luck.

   Thank you. Too bad it isn't 4 wheels. Pretty amazing he has two NOS wheels available.

The seller closed his cobra shop in Germany some time ago, he had a long relationship with Gerry Hawkridge, sold Hawk and Kirkham cars and parts and stocked lots of cobra spare parts / parts. He also visited AC Autokraft in the late 80s and organized OEM parts for customers if needed. He moved to Thailand and is selling the remaining parts in Germany.

Yes, I took them. O.K. not cheap.
   However I operate two MkIVs with 15"-wheels and I think it is worth to have some spare wheels in stock, especially as the risk to damage the front wheel is higher.
   
   If someone is selling original 15" "autokraft" rear wheels.....welcome :-)
   
   For those who are interested in 16" wheels, there is a used set on ebay (UK):

   Smart thinking. Now you have a spare set, you are guaranteed not to ever damage your front wheels!
