Converting Your Triumph TR2-TR6 to Wire Wheels

There is something about wire wheels that says “this is a British sports car!” Years ago, when I was the proud owner of a disc wheeled Triumph, I discovered how easy it was to convert any TR2, 3, 4, 4A, 250 or 6 to wire wheels. It’s also a relatively inexpensive task and, as wire-wheeled…
