One day 5.5 will show up in my neighborhood. Better rims for my trailer than the wider steelies from a d1.

Oliver, thanks for the phone call this morning. I was going to hoard these wheels for a S2a at a future date until you reminded me that those use a 15-inch rim. Glad there are a few inline behind me.

You can use 16s on a S2a if you want.

Understood. Oliver explained the various wheel options and resulting gearing. I at first couldn't make out the tire size, fingers crossed they were a 8.50 for a nice set street tires for the 90. Then after some photoshopping, saw the 7.50, changed plans, and thought nice for a S2a and too small on a lifted 90. Now learned they would be a little tall for a S2a.

Gearing only needs to change if you're really going that much bigger, not sure what size you're running on your IIA now but 32" probably isn't much bigger. 4.7 gears should be able to turn them reasonably well.

Assume they are gone, but pm sent anyway. 7.50 x 16 works great on a Series. Only problem though is that these are going to have the larger lug stud hole in them, so if you have the early lugs that use the 15/16" nuts then they aren't quite what you want.

Actually, that is the perfect size for a IIa. it is what they left the factory with. 88's sometimes had smaller tires but 109's always had the 7.50's

235 85 16 is a great size for a stock series truck very close to the 7.50/16

Never had a problem putting old SII wheels on SIII hubs that use the same M16 stud as the later 90's, RR, etc.

Or vice versa. The taper of the wheel nut is what keeps everything located.

Yeah I have also, but then there is this:

Makes sense to update the older stuff to M16 press in studs for any number of reasons.

Sure it does make sense but the old rims break around the small lug it bearing area because they are rusty and fatigued.

Unless the part numbers are identical (I don't know) the older wheels look different to me in terms of how far the small nuts sink into the wheel. I've got a set of SIII wheels right now on my 109 with the old, small nuts and they just look like they want to pull through. Maybe the taper is different, or maybe my wheels are about to fall apart.


Actually now that this came up and has me thinking about it I might just order up a set of the bigger nutz for the 9/16 studs on my 109. I'm not exactly a rivet counter.
