Wire Wheel Conversion Kits
Owners have been converting disc wheel MGAs to wire wheels for decades. Many started off with the front, which is easy. You need the appropriate splined hubs, knockoffs, and the brake drums. When they get to the rear, it gets more complicated. The entire MGA wire wheel rear axle housing is narrower, and the axles are 7/8"" shorter than those fitted to cars with disc wheels. This was done to compensate for the rear wire wheel hubs, which take up more room. If they had not made the axle narrower, the wire wheels would sit out too far, and your tires would rub up against the inside of the fender. The solution for many owners was to buy an entire MGA wire wheel rear axle. That is getting harder to do, and when you can find one, they are not necessarily cheap. That is where the Moss Wire Wheel Conversion Kit comes in. We have had special splined hub adaptors made that bolt to the rear brake drums. These have been engineered to bring the wire wheels and tires back toward the center of the car, so you don't have issues with fender clearance. You can have your wire wheels and keep your drum brake rear axle.
We recommend either 454-630 chrome or 454-620 painted 60 spoke wire wheels.
