Will EA81 spoke wheels fit? I thought they would but a friend said they rub on his? I was planning on using a set but want to make sure they will fit. Is there a early style spoke that fits the gen I besides Jackmans?

Qman had a set of jackmans in the market place for sale that would fit it which is the white spoke of that time

the 80-84 style white spoke should be okay, but there was a change from 82 to 83 with the inside ring size. not sure if the offset changed... The 85-89 style rub on the rear trailing arm unless you use a spacer.

I have a set of 4 of the 4 slot alloys from 1974 that will work too. they need some serious cleaning/bead blasting though, and no centercaps... $100 shipping included.

Thanks for the info....

I probably need the jackmans, I tried EA81 spokes and they rubbed, didn't check the manufacture date.

Thanks for the offer Mick, I'm thinking white spoke will really look at home on there.

There is some dirt on the wheel you see but they are in very good shape and I have the screw down Jackman centers for them too. They are Bridgestones and practicaly brand new. The spare is just as good just needs to be painted to match. The size is 165/80R13.
