Questions: Will these wheel rims work for radial tires without a tube ? I wanted to use 215/85/16's for highway use as the NDT type tires are rather dangerous in wet weather.
Question By: Lance Alfieri on Nov 14 2017 11:58 PM
As long as you have a tire that is a non-tube style tire then it should.

Questions: I have a 1946 CJ2A. I just did a front disc brake conversion using your kit #376895 and found that the 15" wheels I have will not clear the calipers. Would these 16" wheels work? If not do you have wheels that would?
Question By: Warren on Jun 11 2016 6:27 PM
Originally your CJ-2A would have had 16" rims on there. These rims will not clear the disc brake conversion. You will just need to go to an aftermarket rim with the 5 x 5.5" pattern and you should be all set.

Questions: I am installing the disc brake conversion kit ( front ) on a 1951 CJ. Problem is the original wheels will not clear the calipers. Do I use different wheels, or use a spacer between the wheels and hub to create clearance. If wheels, what application. If spacers, do you have them and longer studs available?
Question By: Gary Clark on Feb 3 2014 12:00 AM
On some original style rims the disc kit will not clear the inner spacing. Aftermarket rims have to be used then.
