Default Scout 80/800 Wheel Size

Howdy -

Does anyone know what the stock wheel width and diameter of a Scout 80 and Scout 800 are? I am interested in knowing whether either used a 16.5" diameter wheel and what the width is if they did.

Thanks,

Shawn

80/800 4x4 rim and tire sizes Stock:

rim 15x5.5, 16x4.5, hole

tires: 15x7.00, 7.35, 7.75, 8.15, 8.25, 8.45, 8.55

16x6.00


I don't believe that any of these tires were taller than 28".

and 16.5" rims definetly weren't on them.

DRAT! Foiled again. I figured it was a long shot. I am looking for 16.5" wheels on a 5.5" center and 8-10" wide bc I would like to run old Hummer tires on my truck. Does anyone know where I could find wheels like this?

To run the Hummer tires 37" tall, you'd have to have a SOA set up and cut the fenders to make things work. On any Scout.

Rims can be had. Stockton Wheel will make 16.5 rims custom to your needs for around 165.oo a copy.

I did a lot of research befor I bought rims for my '65 Scout. And the Hummer tires and rims I thought about too. In the end, I didn't like my options to make them work for my application.

Hmmm. I have 35's with an SOA on it now and do not have any problems with clearances. Do you think an extra inch or two in tire height will make that much difference?

Tires, Humm yes, Much needs to be considered. Wheel backspace, wheel width, tire buldge, Tire stuff ability at angle, The rub factor on the stuff ability at angle.

So, my first question is, does your front tires rub on turning? On compression or rebound and where? If not, how much clearence do you have under these conditions?

How wide are the rims? What is the backspace? If you jump up 2" will you now have the clearence? If you have an inch or less clearence now, 37's won't work without some sheet metat work.

Go through these gyrations and you can make a much better educated guess than I can sitting behind this keyboard.

Let us know your results.

I do not know the answers to these questions yet. The SOA on the truck is crappy and I will be switching chassis here pretty soon to a SII chassis. I will most likely add a reverse shackle to the front and am thinking of a coil sprung suspension in the rear. The SII frame + the SII axles will give me an extra inch or two for wheel cut (one for the frame and one for the axle width) per wheel end. I will have to watch the stuff portion for the body. I expect to use a centered wheel for back spacing (probably 8-10" width) and both the 35's on there now and the 37's possibly going on there are 12.5" wide. I will check as I make progress. I am waiting for 4 Wheel Parts to have a Buy 3 Get One Free Sale on their Pro Comps again. This will pretty much make up my mind for 35's.

I know this thread was posted over 10 years ago, but if your still reading this, I have a questions. I have a 1962 scout 80 , I bought it with a SOA and 8" shackle extension
37x12.50x 16.5 already on it, they rub the springs pretty bad. I am going to be taking off the home made lift and going only with a SOA and 33's. My question, what back space do I need on my wheel to not rub?

TAG.

I'm also interested in knowing what works and what will not. I'm just beginning my build/resto, and it would be really nice to NOT make a couple thousand dollar mistake when I go for new wheels and rubber.

Any input from the knowledgeable folks in here would answer one of the questions I was going to post.
