Wheels sizes for Aussie Bedfords, CF
« Reply #12 on: March 06, 2017, 11:55:44 AM »
Hi, I'm in a bit of a pickle with getting my 1979 Bedford van on Historic rego. I had previously been running 15" F100 wheels that had been re-drilled but they were a bit wide so reverted to a set of alloy jelly bean mags 14 x 7"
With the changes in rego rules and a requirement for more originality on historic vehicles I need to go back to the originals, however, my originals seem to be 14 x 7" as well and all the spec sheets, British and Australian show 5.50 or 5 1/2" x 14" wheels as standard? If anyone can show me where they say 6" or 7" x 14" it will save me heaps in new tyres! at least until these wear out and I can get whatever they need (if it doesn't change again in the mean time!! : )
ALso, I do believe that Landcruiser 200 series (5 stud) wheels in 15, 16 and 17 will fit the stud pattern of the Bedford (PCD matches but u would have have to check the offset and adjust tyre sizes to suit so they don't foul on guards, cheers, Brendan

I don't know about AUS specs but in Europe the original wheel specs were:

5.50J x 14 / 38mm offset with 185 or 195 R 14C tires.

I did research on the Land Cruiser 200 series and the PCD is very close: 5x150 (5x152.4 on the CF)

2.4mm dosen't seem much difference BUT that 1.2mm on each hole won't let the nut tapper seat properly in the hole.

The land cruiser also uses M14 lug nuts while the CF is 7/16" which is equivalent to aprox. M12 if Im not mistaken.

Also the stock rims have 60mm offset...
