Solution to our wheel fitment issues

Post by HighlyJetted on Sat Oct 31, 2009 10:56 pm

Wobbly Nuts!


Sounds really safe??

No but really have a look at these:- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300336026786

They are wheel nuts with off set washers that allow upto 2mm of variarion in pcd Wink

So we can fit 108mm pcd wheels like ford fitment etc to out 110mm pcd hubs.

I've just been out in the dark and measured up my wheel nuts, they are M12x1.5 thread

And my hub size is 65mm,

I roughtly have 5.5" between the back of the rim and the bolt face

See what I find out, more to come!

So I recon these will fit:-

Berlingo 96> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
C2 03> 4x108 15 to 25 65.1
C3 02> 4x108 15 to 25 65.1
C5 01> 4x108 15 to 25 65.1
Saxo 4 Stud 92> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
Saxo VTR/VTi 97> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
Xantia 93 -97 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
Xsara 97> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
Xsara Picasso 99> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
ZX 90 -98 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
ZX 16v 92 -98 4x108 15 to 20 65.1

106 4 Stud 91> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
106 GTI 96> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
205, 309 84 -99 4x108 15 to 25 65.1
206 98> 4x108 20 to 25 65.1
306 93 -01 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
307 01> 4x108 15 to 25 65.1
405 87 -97 4x108 15 to 20 65.1
406/406 Coupe 95> 4x108 15 to 25 65.1
Partner 93> 4x108 15 to 20 65.1

So something french seems to be of use for once.
Having 15-25mm offset will make them stick out of the arches a bit more, which is good Smile means they wont scuff the struts or the arches and will allow the 6" or 6.5" J wheels fit so 195 tyres might work.

These are the correct wobbly nuts:- http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PCD-WOBBLY-CORRECTIVE-NUTS-M12X1-50-SINGLE-NUTS_W0QQitemZ290317492379QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Cars_Parts_Vehicles_Wheels_tyres_Trim_Nuts_ET?hash=item439845609b

Had another look at my hijet and it appears the rear doesn't have the hubs/centerbore flange, this means when fitting the new 108mm pcd wheels with the wobbly nuts special car will have to be taken to ensure the wheel is bolted on true/centre.

I can build flanges like that with any size, I'm a lathe machinist and there is no problem, I can work up to 450mm in diameter.

In the past we do similar custom spacers to fit particulars alloy rims on a Nissan 3000GT, theoretically we can build adapter to fit on the Hijet any rim with any pattern and hole quantity.

We have in stock some 150mm diameter 6060 Anticorodal alloy, I think it would be perfect, otherwise it is possible to work it out from 7075 (Ergal) or steel if you want a bomb-proof spacer...

I think we can do it about 40€/couple if we produce only a few quantity.
But I don't own the factory Razz

However I can ask my employer if he is interested to do this work.
It was better to do some "kits", if some other was interested...

Asked Very Happy

There is the possibility of doing it at about that price, we only need to know the price of the studs if you want a complete kit.

We can start to work on it when we have at least 5 kit of adapters (20pcs).
In next days I try to find good price studs in my zone.

Remember those hub adapters will make the wheels stick out by another inch, which may be an MOT failure, may make the steering heavier, and will have an adverse effect on the front suspension geometry.

If the wheels you have already stick out which most do, then they will be quite proud. Cars are not allowed to have wheels protruding from the arches, and it's why some hijets have wheel arch extensions.

I have made some spacers for another car in the past, so have the programs already on the CNC machine at work. So if these aren't available anymore and anyone needs a set I could make some up, would just need dimensions (thickness, O/D, I/D and both PCD's). I could do a set for £50 plus shipping.

It would just be for the adapters, think the price may be slightly high. I will check the price of the material early next week. I could definitely get the cost down if I knew I could sell a few sets.

Has Anyone tried to modify their hubs, to change to a 4x100, or 4x108 pcd? Without the use of an adapter? Modify by machining, i mean. For example, drill another hole pattern at 45° to the existing pattern. Then remove the original studs. ad new studs to the new pattern.

I just thought of it, as i am struggling to fing cheap steel 14inch wheels. But i am sure someone has already thought of this before.

Thanks for any replies on this guys n gals.

I had the same idea. I saw it on tunning cars (does not seem an easy job...)...let's see what professionals say about! What a Face
