Hi all, I'm intending on fitting some 15x4 Hillman Minx wheels (when I can source them) to my Prefect and would like to know the maximum tyre width I can safely get away with. I've noticed at shows that a lot of people are using Minx wheels and some literally have their tyres ballooning off the rim which looks damn cool.

cheers

Dave

Thanks koolhandluke, but do you or anybody else know if this is the widest width tyre that can be safely fitted to the Minx rims.

Obviously presuming you are meaning crossplies ..as a 4 inch rim they are designed for a 5.00 range tyre though I've fitted 7.00 series before but they are a bit wobbly at that size. I'd personally stick at a 6.00 range , especially as there is no safety bead on a Minx rim to stop it rolling off the bead on hard cornering.

If it's radials I'll try harder next time :oops:
