OK, this depends, what kind of stock rims you are talking about, early
steel, wires, or rostyle? I think they are all different.
Now, the question I have been meaning to ask for a while:
On a SQUARE WHEELARCH Spridget, what size rims/tires will fit the rear.
If haven't read anything about that anywhere. Probably because racers
don't care an bugeyes have round wheelarches...
