HK HT HG Monaro Rims - Confused.

What rims go behind the monaro hubcaps....are the 14 x 5 ones with the 8 holes in them for hk models alone. Did they use them on T & G or do they just use a plain steel rim in 14 x 5 or 6?

HK had 5" and 6". They are identified by the eight slots. HT & HG ued the plain steel rim in 5" & 6". HT HG also had a 6" rim with the eight HK slots. These were only available on the 350 manual cars. HK had different offset to HT HG. HK used different wheel nut to HT HG. Stud pattern the same for all of them. There was also a Heavy Duty rim in HK HT HG. This was standard on commercial vehicles and optional on the rest. Identified by a thicker weld on the back of the rim.

the 6 inch rims were for the bathurst cars, and the spare wheel well had a different spare holder than the std cars

My sister in law had a trailer with 4 8 slot 6* 14 inch rims and i was keeping an eye on them for my monaro project.

someone else realized what they were and knocked the lot off!

The HT HG 6" rims with the HK slots were ONLY available on HT HG 350 Manual cars. Yours have obviously been changed at some stage. The brackets in the boot on the chassis rail for the spare wheel were necessary to fit certain wheels due to tyre size, not rim size. Broughams had them in the boot but only had 5" rims. This was due to the height of the tyre. Generally anything larger than 6.95 x 14 had them.

I have a HK Belmont ute and want to change the mags to standard rims. The questions I have are: did all hk's have the slotted wheels, do they need 45 deg wheel nuts. Its been fitted with a hg disc braked front end does this make a difference.
