Minilite 4.5 J knock on

PostPost by: alan.barker » Sun Jan 29, 2023 7:55 am

I like to keep my Sprint original but i would be ok to fit minilites 4.5 J. That is no mods to Sprint and run 155/80 x 13 Tyres.
Have others done this.

Alan, I think the offset of a Minilite is key here. There are no problems with my Panasports which are
5 inches wide, on my Sprint, running 155/80 x13 tires. Panasports are not with me now but I can get a backspace
measurement if you wish.
