Newbie here, about to fetch an automatic 3.4 saloon from US to Europe.
I’m wondering if this is doable - putting wire wheels over drum brakes …
I could buy & fetch wire wheels with the car, if reasonable.
I’m also considering replacing DG250 with a US T5 tranny … shipping combined
Any suggestions ?
My Mk1 does not have wire wheels, but it does have a complete Mk2 front suspension, so you should he able to easily find something that will work. JS

I think I read one story about the wire-upgrade ending with major suspension changes, however I’d prefer to keep changes (and cost) to minimum.
I noticed there are flat bolt-on ‘hubs’ available for wire wheels, so I was considering this path.
But I’m worried of any physical incompatibilities like collisions (wrong ET for a drum ?).
