wheels that fit

Post by Ryan 95 on Tue Aug 19, 2014 11:48 am

test fitted a wheel from a Peugeot 205 ind it fits Shocked , so wheels from Renault,Peugeot,Citroen and ford will probably all fit on, PCD is 4x108 and they bolt down fine, these pictured are 13 inch will probably use wobble bolts

You're bending the studs by 1mm. That is really fine! Sure.

Then take the vehicle for a good drive, I've found the van's i've drove with 4x108's forced on get bad speed wobbles/vibrations. Probably because the wheel isn't sitting bang on central.

Seen it done loads of times though, and a few have come here with snapped stud issues too.

thats why i wondered if wobble bolts would take up the extra 1mm and seat the wheel Question , if not i will get hub adapters

Hub adapters will give you wayyyy to much offset really.

I say wobble nuts is a reasonable option, far better than the stud bending option!

The very best option, is get some pcd4x110 wheels.

excuse my ignorance but is it possible to drill out 4 110 pcd equidistant on a wheel or would that weaken the wheel?

Its very doable, just having the kit to do it half the battle. Most wheels then have some steel inserts or something in the holes as the alloy is soft. But perfectly do-able. But I bet a capable engineering place would want at least £50 a wheel to do it.

Has he got a lathe that will fit a 14" or 15" wheel in? As a lathe that big is a pretty serious bits of kit! We're talking ship building or plant equipment fabrication gear.

I am friends with the lads in a couple of engineering companies that specialise in machining, turning, welding, NDT, etc - but non have a lathe big enough for wheels. If the chuck jaws could come from the inside it would be OK, but they need holding by the wheels bead - which is just a little bit too big.
