I might not have time to work on the project at the moment, but doesn't stop me thinking about things I need to sort out.
I had wheels picked out but have since found out that I'm not allowed to run them for the tyre size I have chosen. So now deciding on which ones to choose. They have to be a 17" wheel to clear the brakes and have a 7 or 7.5" width to suit the 235/80R17 tyres I want to run. The offset also needs to be at least +25, or 5" of back spacing, and have a 5 on 5", or 127mm, stud pattern. Want a more traditional look too and not modern.
These are the front runners right now as remind me a bit of the Willys Combat rims with the bolts around the outside.
This is the Combat rim showing the bolts around the outside so the two halves of the rim could be easily separated for tyre changes in the field.
I wanted to run the Centerline Smoothies to start with but cannot not get enough backspacing in the 17x7" wheel. So maybe something like these with a Willys centre cap?
These come in a couple of different hole shapes too.
Not sure if I like the covered nuts as might look too modern?
This maybe too plain?
