Hi all,

Does anyone know if TR5 wires will fit spline and wings/fenders of a 100/6 or 3000 Healey. They are: 15" x 5.5"?

I'm being offered some at a price that is too cheap to ignore.

Cheers

The spline is certainly the same size, but BE SURE that the spokes don't touch the front brake drums! I used 72 spoke TR6 wheels on my 100/6 for a number of years without any trouble, replacing the set of chrome 60 spoke wheels my brother mistakenly fitted__resulting in 21 broken spokes on the LF wheel & 11 on the RF!

They should fit with no problem.

As long as the spokes don’t foul the drums, you’re fine. 5.5” width is no problem, though 165 tires still fit best without fouling the front inner fender wells.

Suggest checking about the spokes first hand before buying.
