      I am searching for information on wheel offset for my Tiger. I’m hoping to order some wire wheels — size 15. Any information on tire and wheel size would be appreciated. Thanks. Linda

        Are you goingt o put on bolt on wheels or proper splined wheels? Also you understand that Tigers are wires are not genereally regarded as a good mix.

        Tigers and wires aren’t quite compatible. If you talking
        about replacing the spindles and such with splined shafts
        for the wires to fit, I understand the Tiger’s torque would
        spin but the splinded shaft and wire. This is not a good idea.

        Dayton Wheel makes wire wheels for any car in the world.
        They would bolt right on as they don’t use spined shafts.
        They are custom made and not cheap ($500/wheel??).

        Check the internet for the email address.

        All Tigers now are faced with the problem of not many good
        speed rated 13 iinch tires are being made. That’s why a lot
        of the west coasters are going to 14 or 15 inch wheels. I believe
        one of the manufacturers is making a mini lite look alike with
        the correct bolt pattern and off set for the Tiger. Go 15 not
        14 of you can as 14 inch tires are becoming hard to find.

        Sunbeam Specialities sells excellent repros of the LAT 70
        wheel with spinner. You might contact Rick McCleod ad see
        if he is making the in 15 size.
