Just trying the Sprint wheels (no tyres as yet) on my 1850HL and I wonder if there will be rubbing issues on the rear inner wheel arch. There is a sort of thicker piece on the inner arch, presumably for strength, and I could imagine the tyre being very close to it. I know the genuine Sprint used a different axle. Was it a wee bitty bit wider than the standard 1850 axle?
I would like to go with original size Sprint tyres, 175/80 x 13, but these aren't common now. I suppose most people use 175/70 x 13 and put up with the speedo error which will be around 6% fast.
There should be no rubbing issues with sprint wheels on a 1850 , the original tyres fitted to a sprint are 175/70/13 and not 175/80/13
