That’s what I have fitted :D

You’ll need spacers though.

Finally got some TR6 wheels fitted, but I can only go straight, they touch something when I turn (wishbone ?)

What spacer should I get please ?

They have an offset of 15.9 and you need about zero - so you need about 15mm - you “might” get away with half an inch. That means longer wheel studs or bolt on spacers.
