Graeme White's blue TR3A on the front page of the forum has 5 stud wheels.
Obviously the hubs have been changed, this would give a larger selection of wheels.
Whats the story?

The 5 stud wheels were a modification carried out by a previous owner - a motor engineer in Victoria around 1970 (for track work). Useful for him because he had a set of GTHO Falcon 12 Slotters. It is not a modification I would recommend as it would require serious re-engineering of the hubs. Stick to the 4 stud pattern and there are plenty of wheel variations for them.

Interested in your comment Rick- "Stick to the 4 stud pattern and there are plenty of wheel variations for them." Other than mags or wires do you know of any steel wheels from other cars that will bolt straight on to our stud pattern?
Cheers Peter

Surprisingly SAAB four stud wheels fit. Check with Andrew Gibson.

Nearly all Nissan / Datsun 4-stud wheels have the same PCD as our cars.....mm
