J,

I know it is your truck but you have an awesome looking truck that it doesn't deserve those wheels/tyres.

Maybe the tyres but I will put back on the original rims..so freaking sexy without the wholes

Yes Goose, I know. The Wolf rims are temporary until I find correct Series I rims. The ones I took off are not correct.

I've got a set of 7.50 XZL's on 5.5" wheels that make their way on to the 80" from time to time.

They fit fine...I've cheated and use the 1-1/16th lug nuts from a II that still fit the small studs...but are just tall enough to rub on the frame without steering stop adjustment..

Unless you're really set on the 4.5" rims, don't discount using 5.5" ones.

Didn't the 107/109" have a 5.5" wheel with a lot of inset that looked like a 4.5" wheel when fitted? I had one such wheel a long time ago, got rid of it - it did nothing for the turning circle.

I believe you are correct, which is why I like running the Wolf rims.

Finally got my crate of small bits for the 107. Got the crossmember grab handles, all 4 interior door pulls, interior S2 rearview mirror, and drivers side mirror installed. Also found an original grill badge that turned out pretty good after a repaint. sanding, and polishing.

Finally finished the install of the Koenig crank driven winch with cab controls, as well as the refurbishment and installation of an original rear step.

Next up: tranny swap

Great looking Rover. Not too often am I really envious. This is one instance.

For period correct tires there's Avon Traction Mileage from Vintage tires. For less money there's a close look-a-like from Specialty Tires of America. http://www.stausaonline.com/light-tr...r-traxion.html

If you are interested unusual period wheels I have a set of two part rims (PN 217267) I'd consider parting with.
If you aren't familiar with them, they look like this.
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q...e/100_1134.jpg
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q...e/100_1133.jpg

They were designed for 6.00x16 or 7.00x16 but I always ran 7.50x16's on them without issue.

That's a massive winch! Is it heavy? Looks Good!

Those are some pretty cool looking rims Tom. What years / models did they come on?

Winch weighs 217lbs with the massive mounting plate.

They look to be split (military style) rims. More correct for early Series Is.

They were used on '49's and in to the '60's. They were an option for civilian. The military used them more.

This is why I love Rovers. I had the seatbox, floor, and tranny/tcase out in less than 2 hours.

So if it wasn't obvious, I am swapping in a new tranny....

Clean, grind, POR15/primer/rust converter/paint the top of the frame while you are in there. I have seen the frames rust out on the top under the bulkhead area. I would also spray waxoyl into the holes on the top, especially the curved outriggers. Clean out the drain holes under it first.

Hope to see you soon, but I doubt you will drive that truck up my way (although I would love to see it).

Won't waste my time. There is galvanizing in the frame's future!!! But this frame is strangely solid with only a few minor issue.
