Hi Everyone

I have a willys jeep for which I want to buy some alloy/mag wheels. I have been told that the fittings for the wheels is the same as the M&M Classic. The questions I have are :-

1. Can anyone confirm this for me ?
2. There are 5 studs, the PCD is 139 or 5.5. Which PCD figure do I use ?
3. Does anyone know of a make/model of wheel that will fit directly ?
4. I want indian wheels and not imported. Any recommendations for a supplier?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Dinya

Hello Dinya,
The PCD for JEEP Wheels is 139.7 and the bolt pattern is 5(bolts) on 5.5 (Dia circle)= 5 on 5.5. (with 4 inch back spacing)

Aura Makes them for the maruti Gypsy. Go in a for a Wheel Disc/ Rims with 8x15 with 2-3 inch Back spacing this will widen your track and allow fitment of broader tyres without affecting the turning radius

Regards,

Arka

Default willys wheels

Hi Arka

Thanks for your help. I have now located a suitable set from Neo (HULK) and will be getting them fitted on Saturday with BF Goodrich tyres (the biggest that will fit under the arches).

Incase, you dont see this, I've also sent a thankyou by PM.

Its a shame with so many supposed Jeep enthusiasts/experts on this forum that nobody else could point me in the right direction.

You know, the reason for the lack of replies could be due to the fact that this section isn't browsed too often. Atleast that is my case.
The Willys originally came with 16" wheels and getting a set of alloys for that width and dia is probably difficult. However it looks like you're willing to go with the 15", so any set that fits the Gypsy will fit your Willys.
Sorry that I could not be of help earlier.
