Spare wheel fitting

Spare wheel fitting

Postby Gavin » Tue Aug 20, 2019 10:49 pm

Good morning. I am a new member to this forum. I have just finished a restoration on a 1948 6 light P3 75 car no: 8410623 I am pleased with the outcome the car is BRG, dark with beige interior. The car sits on 525/550 x 17" 4 ply tyres. I have fitted a later twin SU carbed head and it does go well. I do have a problem. The spare wheel is a 17" with 525/550 4 ply tyre that does not fit in the spare wheel compartment. If I force it in deflated, it will be useless as I am unable to get it out by myself and it will be flat. Did the 75 have a smaller spare wheel? The car came with a spare when I bought her some 20 years ago , but I never checked the size back then, although it may well have been a beaded wheel, unsure of the whereabouts of this spare now. Anyone got any thoughts on this. Gavin Hill Nelson Rover Car Club NZ
