1.  Intro

2.  Early model "Skinny" Wheels

3.  Late model 13-inch wheels

Due to center of gravity concerns, and the availability of replacement parts, Sparrows were later built with three matching 13-inch wheels and a modified suspension system and swing arm. The original wheels were made by Primax, size 13x5.5JJ with 4x100 bolt pattern and 38mm offset. Tires were 155/80R13. Wheel and tire replacements are limited by width since it's a tight fit into the fender and front wheel panels.
