Hubs

Australian Classic Wire Wheels - Fitting LA Wires

There are 4 splined hubs, 2 red and 2 white. It is very important to fit these to the correct side of the vehicle.

The red hubs are fitted to the Right hand side of the vehicle.(as seated in the vehicle). The white hubs are fitted to the Left hand side of the vehicle.(as seated in the vehicle). This gives you a left hand thread on the r/h side and a right hand thread on the l/h side of the vehicle.

You must ensure that these hubs will mate with the original vehicle hub face perfectly flat.

The hubs must be fitted to the vehicle with tapered wheel nuts. (usually used to fit original steel wheels) and make sure these wheel nuts are not too long so as to prevent the wheel seating correctly. These nuts must be tightened to the original vehicle wheel nut torque specification. Once the vehicle has been driven, the wheels are to be removed and these nuts retorqued.

Wheels

The wheels are fitted over the hubs and fully located on the dog drive at the rear of the wheel.

The spinner is then started on the thread by hand (r/h thread on the l/h side of the vehicle and l/h thread on the r/h side of the vehicle) and spun on by hand until they fully contact the wheel.
