    101 - 101. A quick find quide to the 101 Forum

    So, here it is – I have made a start. As mentioned in the ‘Aussie 101 Club’ Thread, my plan here is to keep posts to a minimum so as not to clog things up here and make it hard to find the info we are looking for. I am happy for anyone to either post here, on the ‘Aussie 101 Club’ thread or PM me to make any additions, put forward ideas, improvements, etc. If replies are posted here I may incorporate the additions into an existing post then delete that reply to keep this thread as clean as possible – let me know if you have any problems with this – I am just here to help and make this what you want it.

    If there is a majority that feel they want a different name for this - let me know.

    A few useful links:

    Also a small list of alternative tyre sizes instead of using 9.00x16's.
    some will work/look better on IIA/IIB FC's than on 101's, but you get the idea.
    Initially researched and posted on the 900club.org forum.

    We all know that 9.00's are to all intents and purposes thin on the ground, and not always the easiest or cheapest things to find, so here's a list of metric fitments which are somewhat more available, and any mods needed to fit.

    255/85 R16 - These will fit the standard 6.5 inch rim, slightly wider than a 9.00x16, but about the same height as a Bargrip at 33" tall.

    255/100 R16 - The Michelin 'metric' 9.00x16, these will fit standard 6.5 inch rims, rather expensive and difficult to get hold of cheaply though, approx 36" tall.

    285/75 R16 - Somewhat wider than 9.00x16's, (approx 11") but similar diameter. They have been fitted to 6.5" rims, but are ideally slightly pinched. An 8" rim would be more of an ideal.

    315/75 R16 - The size offered by Craddocks with their 8" wide wheel package for 101's, obviously requiring wider rims to suit. Approx 34" tall.

    33x12.50R15 - Wide rubber which doesn't look too out of place on an FC, obviously requires wider 15" rims to suit. Some care is required when buying as they vary in diameter depending on brand and tread pattern between 31" and 33".

    8.25R16 - A Michelin light truck size, available in XZA (road) and XZL patterns, approx 33" tall
    Tend to come up in tyre tenders at Withams every so often.

    There's probably more, but there's a few to start, all of which are fairly readily available at less than £150 each in the UK.

    So, are you able to add to this list the 'known 101's' that as of yet don't have a thread or whos owners are not yet on the forum.... There's one in Adelaide 'Petes 101', one in Gawler 'Docs 101', philandlizz's 101... A reasonably accurate list of 101's in Oz would start to form then... If not, no prob, fully understand, and happy for you to delete this when you've read it.

    Is Pete on the forum? Get him to start a thread on his and we'll put it on the list. Same with Doc and philandliz.
    Some people may not want their 101's plastered all over the internet. I know of a few 101 owners, some on this forum, who don't want their treasures displayed on a very public forum. For those that don't mind, nothing stopping them (or you) putting up a thread we can link to.

    I'll work on Pete and philandliz, and I'll be seeing 'The Doc' as we're going to try and rectify his brake issues over the coming months in my shed.
