Other than MOSS does anyone have a souce for 14" x 5.5" Minilite or Panasport wheels that might be cheaper than MOSS?
I like them & want to find a set of 4.

I'm a sales agent for Pack Racing, and sell the Superlite, they are 14 x6" and fit the MGB great, I've sold a bunch of them to MGB owners. Here's a picture of the 14 x6 wheel.

Jack, that's the UK site , which is full of boos-boos, first off it kinda of suggest the wheels are made in the UK, they are not, they are made in Australia, I know tis because I'm a dealer for Superlite and have done fitment work for them. I did all the fitmant test for the spline drive wheels on MGBs for Superlite.

Vince I tested these wheels with tires as large as 195/65/14 with no fitment issues, some folks have even played with bigger sizes. I have sold these wheels to maybe 100 MGB owners, so we're not blazing any new trails here, it's a tried and trued fitment.

The question was asked about sizes of wheels available and that was all I could find.

sorry Hap, should have given your phone number for answers.

I'm sold on the rims but have another question. Are there any problems running this size tire on the B. Is it "too" big?

I've got 195/65/14s on my car and they fit fine, the MGB needs about 4" backspscing with the 6" rim, I did alot of testing for Superlite and built a extra cushion into the backspacing, becuase I know guys will go bigger on tires, others have went as big as 205s, I just don't recommend it, mainly because I have liabilty to deal with, I don't want to tell you to go with 205s and they rub.
