The Spitfire hubs for 13" wires have shorter splines than the MGA/MGB/MGC type, so larger wheels won't fit them. When a bigger wheel is pushed fully onto the hub the thread for the spinner is still inside the wheel giving you nothing to screw the spinner on to.

The MWS adaptors are excellent quality and will take any of the MG A/B/C wires giving you a choice from 4"x14" 48 spoke, through 4.5"x14" 60 spoke (MGB and cheap as chips on ebay) to 5.5x15 72 spoke (typically 200 each new).

Just bear in mind that the TR4/5/6, Jaguar and Aston Martin all used different splines so won't fit the MG adaptors.
