[Healeys] Tires for 100-6

I have these wheels on my BN7, which was originally a disk wheel car.  They are very robust, and installed when the car was restored in ’89 before being purchased by the PO.  They do look considerably beefier than standard wires.

I think you sent the wrong link!  How about these?  




Will the new hubs simply bolt right up and be at the correct spacing??

I might look at Dayton dental drives as the weak point is going to be on the splines:  <http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/31/dhs-settles-with-ice-attorney-trying-to-enforce-law/> http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/31/dhs-settles-with-ice-attorney-trying-to-enforce-law/

I like the look of the Cobra laced wheels as well for extra strength

I am looking into buying new 72 spoke Dayton wire wheels for my '59 100-6 and will also get new tires at the same time.
Thinking about running staggered sizes --- I am making much more horsepower than stock and was looking at using Vredestein 205/70HR15 for the rear which are 26.3" in diameter and section width is 8.2".
Front tires could remain stock (165/15) which are 25.43" by Firestone or Vredestein.

Are 205 section tires too wide for Dayton rims?  Coker says they are fine.  Believe 72 spoke Daytons are 6.5" wide.

Wondering how it will look with staggered sizes. Anybody else try this?  Thanks.
