Folks,

Here is LD2UBW, the FIRST Federal Specification Triumph Stag - hand built in the Triumph Model Shop next to LD1UO.

LD2UBW is a Historically Significant Triumph Stag.

LD2UBW has been fully and accurately restored in 2015 by Joe Pawlak of Illinois Sports Owners Association.

Joe has full documentation of the car from Gaydon BMIHT and a full detail album of its accurate restoration.

I believe it is - or will be for sale.

Cheers!

Hi Paul,

The OE Wheels were made by GKN with a stock offset of 1.12 inch and the stock wheel width is 5.50 inches.
So those two dimensions you might want to keep so everything stays inside the wheel arches with out rubbing.
Going to a taller wheel diameter does not necessarily mean the tire will be a taller OD diameter, just that you will be using a different profile tire having less sidewall to keep the same rolling circumference.

If you go with a wider tire, you may need to slightly increase the offset because the tire may hang up on the road spring even if you are keeping with the same overall diameter tire. On the Stock 14"alloy wheels a wider profile tire gets pretty close to the spring.

Some of the folks in Europe say there are larger wheels of the same configuration made by a manufacturer "ATS" in Germany but I have not been able to locate the wheels on for Triumphs on their web site. They do show this style at their site for a starting point. They indicate they are available in 13" and 15" and do look different than OEM GKN Alloy

I have not seen any wheels like that in North America, but I do know that some of the Canadian Stag owners have 15"on their Stags.

Have a look at my wheel restoration photos at StagByTriumph Garage - these are of course 14" diameter.
