13' Scamp Wheels.

Hello there folks,

I have a '94 13' Scamp and I'm in need of tires and wheels... I'd like to replace the stock 13" white-spoke ones with a solid steel wheel, like this: LINKY

Am I correct that the stock wheels are "Zero Offset"? The above wheels are 0.5" offset - Will that present a problem with bearing wear or fitment ?

I have the 5 on 4.5 pattern 5-bolt currently on there.

Anyone know a source for zero offset steel wheels ? (wanna put moon hubcabs on ... Yeah, I know, sexy )

Thanks very much!

That's sure an important question in contemplating new wheels!
It seems to me that a change, especially if to the positive side, might bring the tire into contact with the trailer body.

I see it is positive offset,the 1/2"certainly won't not bother anything if you don't increase the section width of the tire by much. As for bearing wear... no problem. Looks like a great choice.

Actually negative offset would bring the outer edge of the rim further out...
Positive offset moves the edge of the rim closer to the frame.

That's what I thought I said- isn't the body on the inside of the wheel well???

There's just a wheelwell to the inside, I would think of the "Shell" as the "body" of a Scamp. Either way... The point is clarified for all concerned.
