Wheel size

Postby westy24 » Sun Dec 10, 2017 8:48 am

Iv read the article about wheel sizes but I can’t make sense of it . I’m looking at mini light wheels 13” x5 with a pcd of 101.6mm including 3/8 wheel nuts on eBay . Will these fit my 1956 split screen?

Can you please post a link to the 'e' bay item so as to be able to confirm and to fully answer your question?
In the meantime:-
The PCD of 101.6mm or 4" is correct.
If you have wheel studs and wheel nuts and not wheel stud and nut combined the 3/8" UNF wheel nuts will be correct. Just make sure that the seat angle of the wheel nut is the same as the wheel nut seats fitted to or machined in the wheel.
5"J x 13" wheels will fit the Minor. Just make sure that these are 5J and not any other 5"

Thank you for posting the details.
Providing you have wheel studs and nuts the wheels as described will fit your Minor.
I have similar wheels fitted to my Minor but 7" wide x 13" dia x 4" PCD.
Unless the overall diameter of the wheel assy (that is wheel and tyre inflated to the correct pressure) is the same as the overall diameter of the Minor wheel the final gearing will be lowered and the engine may run out of revs much earlier.
See attached details in the chart below:-
