Standard steel wheel as a penman spare ?

I’m looking for a spare wheel for my penman. It’s currently on wolf rims with Michelin xzl 7.50 r16 tyres. Finding a reasonably priced second hand or mod surplus wolf rim with a Michelin xzl 7.50 r16 tyre is proving hard.

PS anyone who has one for sale or knows someone that has please message me.

I’m therefore wondering if a standard steel wheel will fit as there are more of them about.

Wolf steel rims are 6.5 inches wide with a 20.6 mm offset. Load about 2.2 ton.

Standard steel rims are 5.5 inches wide with a 33mm offset.load just over 1.6 ton so should be ok for a 1.75 GVW trailer spare.

So will a standard rim sit ok on a penman hub given it will encapsulate the brake calliper and disc by an additional 12.4mm ?

I can work out where different tyre options will sit re inboard and outboard clearances in the wheel arch due to the narrower standard wheel, just don’t know if it will fit ok on the hub due to the greater offset.

Thanks
Ian

I've not tried it but I would be very surprised if there were any issues.

Thanks blackwolf, I’m of the same mind, I can’t think why it would be a problem but wanted to check to see if anyone had done it to confirm my thoughts.
I will take a punt and go for it Very Happy
