In order to secure a spare wheel to the boot floor of the MGB, various design clamps have been designed and applied.
The original wire wheel clamp has only been supplied for ’62 cars upto chassis GHN3 / 4514 in December 1962. It had a cylindrical head, sticking well above the spare wheel. This protruding area caused damage to the luggage.
