Roger,
I didn’t recalibrate the speedometer, I got an app for my phone. I hung from the rear view mirror; it worked great.

The ride. Is much better with the 15 "  but the speedometer must be recalibrated. And you need narrow tires for clearance in rear fenders don't remember the size

Hi all,

Does anyone have experience in switching a rubber bumper B to 15 inch wheels?  How big a job?  Is it worth it for handling and appearance?  Etc.?

There are several of them. They use average GPS location change to calculate movement and speed.

Hi Kevin,

Your friend is probably looking for a roadster, but  I can offer my GT which has AC.  It's a great driver.

I have a friend who is looking for a decent chrome-bumper MGB (or a TR6 or Alpine).  I've known him since high school and he's always dabbled in LBCs - he presently has a Spitfire, but the wife complains that the interior is too cramped so he's looking to get one of the above because they have a wee bit more interior space. He doesn't want a total fixer-upper, but at the same time I don't think he's looking for concours - just s good runner without major issues or buckets of rust. If you know of anyone thinking of selling, please feel free to PM me at kmclemore@.... Thanks!
