    Sorry - yes they are 6 stud. I've got mine on land rover wheels. I still have a pair of originals on an old vineyard 32. You can still get new Fergie front wheels/tyres very cheap. The ones on ebay seem to be smaller (that I need) front wheels.. Cheers

    Thanks for the thought but these are front wheels for a little Fergie.

    Paint Colour - 2 Gallon POW tins

    I was having a job getting paint. My last batch of GMC olive drab was more Landrover series one mid gloss green. I was not impressed. I found a company called Paints4Trade. that I'd not heard of before. They charged me £39.99 for 5 litres of army paint (loads of military colours there) delivered to my door. They also do bus/commercial paints. I have no affilliation whatsover to this company and I'm nor recommending them - just sharing hoping it saves somebody a few quid.

    Thanks for replying. They are very similar but different. The recessed casting on mine is different - possibly from a lighter bedford of the same time. The dimensions from the spring mounts look shorter on mine too - unfortunately. The width between the tyres on her now is the same as on my Vauxhall/Nissan/Renault van. If anyone knows on a cheap axle I can try I'll have a go, Tks Don

    Thanks for all the great advice. Until I can determine what the axle is ( not a Bedford J1 apparently) I can't get hubs so I can't go forward with wheels. Anybody gor a suitable front axle with hubs for sale or recognise this one with the missing brake hubs? Thanks again Don

    I did it this way: 12 0'clock to 6 O'clock. I'ver changed the bad black line colour so I hope its clearer.

    Hi David, It is hole center to center. The 1920 RR models were fittel with Michelin steel wheels but I'm not sure my hubs are the same dimensions I fear adding drum brakes will increase the front axle width so requiring dish wheels like the original bedford ones. or replacement front axle. I attach photos of front/rear wheel depth so you see the issue. Incorrect fromt hubs fitted?
  11. I have a project with 3 different sized wheels/tyres. It is a replica Rolls Royce 1920 Armoured car. I THINK it was built on a Bedford WLB chassis and also need front brakes complete as you can see they have been removed - probably the wrong hub fitted to fix the profile width.. I'd appreciate any suggestions of what might fit. Thanks

    The original RR's had spoked wheels then changed in 1920 to Miichelin solid wheels. The vehicle has 3 different wheel types and 2 differenr rim/tyre sizes. so I hope the Cltreon has 8" hole centers. The originals were solid. All ( except the bedfords) have been cut about to fit. 8" hole centers is critical.
