7.5 and 9-9.5. (Difficult to measure with the tyres on)
THIS IS INCORRECT! They are 8,5 and 6.5 inches!

I was under the impression that the later design FIA wheels were peg drive and 7.5" fronts, 9.5" rears.
If they are spline drive I would expect them to be 6.5" front and 8.5" rears.
If I am correct then it's easy enough to see if they are peg drive or not.

If I remember the history correctly, splines for wire wheels, and peg drive for later cars with higher HP when the wire wheels got twisted during testing due to the extra torque. On the other hand I might be confused with GT40 history....I'm sure someone can correct me.

Standard FIA and 427S/C and 427F/C halibrand set-up is 7.5/9.5. Sunburst wheel sizes are different.

....but rears offset is different for different replicas, bought the T-shirt with a large bill for that one.

If you try to measure the wheel size (just for Information) keep in mind that the rim outer size is NOT the real size. The real size is the dimension between the two "horns". If you have the outer size minus approx. 3/4", that is the real size.
