  • 60 Spoke Wire Wheels on a TR6?

    Hi

    I managed to acquire some cheap 60 spoke wire wheels (15 x 4.5/5?) which came off a TR4 as part of a bulk garage clear out. Although they would fit the TR6 would there be any issues with handling, fitment, weight (strength of wires) etc as I know the TR6 option was for 72 spoke wheels and 5.5 width. Has anyone done this to their TR6?

    My current wheels are steel rims at 15 x 5.5J with 205 profile tyres (I would need new tyres as well........). I prefer not to cut my wheels studs down in case I revert back to steels again so was thinking of using spacers if I go down this route? Any advice appreciated!

    Thanks

    No reason they wouldn't work, but getting them true for highway use may be a challenge. Very old wire wheels...

    FWIW, TR250s and TR5s came with these, so fitness for the application was obviously approved by TRIUMPH. With 165-15 Michelin XAS tires the grip will be a revelation ( doesn't apply to any other, though ).

    I'm planning to get a set of wires for my show car, and will definitely use spacers. I think TR Shop in London fences the very thing.

      Hi Tom, thanks for your input! The car definitely would look better with wires but I will take them into a specialist to get them checked out.
