What is this wheel?
« on: November 21, 2018, 04:18:42 PM »
This is the spare wheel on my CJ3A, it is 16�.  Any idea what it was on originally?  Military?  It has 6.00-16 net on it but it may or may not be an original tire, no idea.  Just curious.

M151 MUTT.. they have an offset hub that puts the tire to the inside of the fender decreasing the track width of a Willys, not optimal on the jeep but will do as a spare in a pinch..
