MiniLites for sale
« on: December 28, 2016, 05:00:59 PM »
For Sale: Set of 4 MiniLite wheels with sleeved lug nuts - no center caps.

I am going to a different style on the Moke project, so these are now available.  They have all appearances of being a genuine set of earlier MiniLites - no markings could be found.  They seem to be 4.5" x 10" and are in very good condition.  Previous owner of the Moke had the faces painted a silver/grey.  The have the correct sleeved lug nuts (full set of 16).

Asking $160.00 USD (buyer pays shipping costs from 78232).

Very interested. Do you know the inner dimentions?  Wondering if they will fit over my breaks. I am going to see if the wife will give me permission to buy them.

One of the planned upgrades to the Moke is a change to 7.5" front disk brakes.

I checked all of the rims to be sure they fit over the assembled disk brake hubs and calipers that I have for installing on the Moke.  I did so by setting a fully assembled hub into each rim, snugging up the lug nuts finger tight and spinning the hub to check clearance.  None had any rubbing or clearance issues.

Dmulder,

Thanks for letting me know.  Sorry you have to pass on them.

Willie_B,

It looks like they are yours.  If you are still planning on coming down to the "Spring Drive", I can hold them for you to take back at that time and let you save the shipping costs?

Willie, Michael,

If Willie's plans change, I call dibs on them:)  I'm in Fort Worth and can arrange collection.  BTW, are they offset for drum brakes or Cooper S brakes?

Regards,

Chris

Chris,

As noted in another post above, I verified they clear the 7.5" Cooper-S disk brakes.  The Moke currently has drums all around, so they will work for either type of brakes.

I'll keep you as 'next in line' for them behind Willie_B.

Cheers,
Michael Playle
