Dunlop wheels doesn’t fit Moke portugal

Post by Roman » Thu Jul 25, 2019 10:04

We restored some original wheels

From Dunlop which should fit to our Moke Portugal 87: TW7XKF 328S 681067

Unfortunately the brake caliber in front is to big for the them.

Any idea how to fix that issue may be with smaller calibers or Track extensions?

Thanks for your support

The Portuguese moke has 8.4” discs and therefore needs 12” wheel rims to clear the calipers, as you’ve discovered. If you want to use the 10” wheel rims you will have to fit a set of 7.5” discs and calipers ( as fitted to mini coopers in the olden days
They are available new from all the major mini suppliers.......go scare yourself with the price of them
At least can add up

Also, do not forget that the Portuguese has a Diff suitable for 12" wheels, and your Speedo will be out with 10" wheels.
