Many thanks guys, so looking for 4" pcd wheels, many thanks should be quite a good range to choose from.

Cheers,

Stu.
be carefull though that the wheels you choose are 4 inch pcd and not as on opels, vw, bmw 4x100mm
they will go on and many have used a more modern wheel on older cars but it will stress the wheel stud and possibly fail:tup:

taken from morris minor forum, so cloth cap and gloves on here we go!!!! lol

" To answer a common query with standard vehicles 14" rims.
Series MM wheels are all 4.5" pcd.
Cars up to no 131858 used 7/16 BSF thread bolts with 5/8 A/F heads
And cars after used 7/16ths UNF bolts with a 5/8 AF head.
Also available from car no 184760 were 7/16ths UNF bolts with 3/8 Whitworth heads which overcame the problem with wear on the wheel bolt holes.

Whereas the later wheels from the series 11 onwards are 4" pcd and use 3/8 UNF studs and the wheel nuts have a 3/8" Whitworth head.

None of the modern metric sizes from other manufactures will fit as the pcd`s are incorrect.
There are some Alloys and Steel rims in different sizes manufactured specifically for the 4" MM wheel pcd available from specialists.
The Midget/Sprite, A35 & A40 also use the same 4"pcd but with 13" rims.
The Classic Mini also has the same 4"pcd but with 10" rims up to 1984 and then 12" rims, also if a Mini was fitted with a Sportspack it will have 13" alloy rims but the offset is unsuitable. "

friend of mine runs vw passat alloys on his moggy dont know whether these are exactly right or he just tightens them up with extra washers hope not he reckons they fit anyway and we tried the rims from dads corsa which went on but had a bit too much play in them for me to trust them onn the road if your wantin to use particular wheels you could always re drill your hubs iv done this and its not as difficult as i thought it would be all you need is a pillar drill and a hub to use as a template

They're the WRONG size, and can (and will) break the wheel studs and come off @ speed.
"minor van has wider steel wheels" - nope SOME of the later vans and pick-ups (the 8 cwt flavour) had wider wheels - the infamous LP 917s - but you'll need luck and money to get a set. I've got loads of them, me, but folk want them for peanuts and I've given up selling Mog bits anyway after a rather, um, trying incident last time I did...

marina is the same as moggy. i think if you go on uk hot rods site in the tech there;s a pcd chart
Marina saloon used 3.75" PCD same as the Triumph cars that the back axle came from. Marina van used 4.5" PCD for some reason.
