Alloy wheels again , Hijet friendly local machinist in the Midlands / Tamworth area required

Post by Cromwelluk on Thu Jun 11, 2015 9:21 pm

Started to prep my Hijet and looking at all the usual upgrades and mods

Got a set of alloys 4x 108 PCD and they are on and look ok but using wobble nuts which seem fine
Looking to improve the fit

Looking for a Hijet friendly local machinist  in the Midlands  / Tamworth area to turn the front wheel hub to a standard size and (and to be able use standard spigots if required )  same as :
http://www.daihatsuhijet.co.uk/hijet-wheels-pcd-4x110/

But also looking at re-drilling the stud holes as I need to fit longer wheel studs
Tried some MX5 studs and they are longer but the spline size is larger , it may be possible to drill a larger hole slightly off centre to give a PCD of 108
Could be a engineering solution to the wheel fitment issues

All three of my Stepchildren live in Tamworth. But none of them have got a clue about cars, which is why I am constantly sending them cheques to keep their 4 wheel velocipides on the road.

So absolutely no help to you there. And before you ask --- bog off. No I am not sending you a cheque.
I am sure there will be someone locally who can find you some help. We did have three members in the Tamworth area but don't know what the tally is now.

Woody , Not so bothered about the wheels but really disappointed about the Cheque LOL.

Changed my profile to include the Town.  Don't see many HJ's about locally  but there is a very tidy  yellow & white  VW front conversion that looks well put together
Don't know the owner but see it driving around.
