    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?
  3. 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.

    Hi, I would love to but can't commit as I need to sort out MOT as she's on a Q plate. This is why I need wheels and possibly brakes sorted. Cheers

    U23 wheels. 99.9% sure they are the ones I need. Thank you. Now to find some.....

    The Citreon U23 wheels are the best bet all round if they fit. I haven't enough for front/rear spares and I too like the plain front wheels. I need to see what can be done about front brakes as she isn't really safe for the road with none. That will affect the hub and maybe the wheels too. I'll try a front/.rear wheel swap to see what problems arise Cheers Don

    Thanks - some wheels are U23 I think as the 2 holes have been welded closed in one. Might need balancing .

    These look like the back wheels. Could this be the chassis too?

    Well spotted David. It is dreadful to stop without front brakes. Letting off the throttle has more effect than braking. The rear axle seems to be original and has these rims fitted. Could they be Bedford rims as studs same as front ones? Thanks again

    I thought so too when I got her. 6 plugs so 4 pots must share inner 2 inlets.

    Here is the front axle and wheel. Not many leafs in the springs for a commercial vehicle. I'm looking for a spare front wheel too if anyone can help or suggest a make/model that may suit. Dimensions in image below. Does anyone recognise the axle or steering box? Could any front brakes be fitted? Thanks Don
