Can anyone tell me if a set of wheels from a Morris Minor will fit a Moke. Im guessing they should but??

Hi,

some do and some don't.

You need to measure the distance between two diagonal holes, centre to centre they should measure 101.6mm to fit on the Moke.

Also I think Morris Minors were 14" and Mokes are 13" wheels, so may affect your final drive.

Yes, they do fit.  The standard steel rims are 14 inch and rather narrow from the factory.  You can fit lower profile tyres to make the gearing sensible (easy), or change your diff ratio (engine out!). 

I have seen MANY Morris Minors wearing 13 inch wheels. 

Just double-check that the stud holes are centred properly.  There are Minors (and Mokes) out there wearing 4x100mm rims from Japanese cars which are incorrect fitment and dangerous.
