matts37chev 9.5 is almost to wide for those tire anyway

blight i just got a quote from stockton in california. 41 for shipping each wheel. 209 per wheel bare (no coating) 17x9 they said they are willing to drill out the holes and and make them a 4x4.5 wheel.

They don't go up to the 9.5 that i would want but i think i can live with 9 inches.

Also they said they should be about 35 pounds each wheel, which in reality isn't really all that bad.

matts37chev its hard to find anything wider than 7.5" in a 17" - 4 on 4.5

blight Diamond racing wheels just refused me to make 17x9 and 17x 9.5 racing wheels - said they were too big and heavy and no longer makes them in that size.

call him up and explain your situation, you want a Hub-centric adapter.

Oops I just noticed that he doesnt do 4 to 5 lug, some others do though, look on ebay

blight I also (btw) do not want to do any kind of brake conversion for too many reasons to list.

blight Its for one of my old s30 z cars I have 2 1978 datsun 280Zs. I have searched for wheels for a long time can't seem to find anything that I want.

Rota has the size that i want but they are a year and a half out - i've called around. The size they run are 17x9 with -13 in front, 17x9.5 with -19 in the rear. That sounds about perfect. I was planning on running a set of bmw (5x120) or mustang wheels (5x4.5) whatever ended up working, i really don't care about looks as long as I could fit a 245/45r17, I have a deal with bridgestone to run re11s on my cars.
03-01-2012 08:25 PM
matts37chev what vehicle is this going on and what size/kind of wheel are you trying to put on it?
you did say autocross use correct?

there might be a better solution than spacers
03-01-2012 07:54 PM
blight Are they not in portland? I am in Minnesota if i could find a local company that will do that that would be perfect. I am currently at zero offset, I think I will have a stronger chance finding rims as wide as I need with zero offset or close.

enjenjo Moser will redrill hubs and rotors, $30 per set, so $120 for the whole car.

On the wheel adapters, I machine a press in ring that will fit the hub pilot, and center the wheel. I have a pair on my car, in the rear, that have been on there for 18 years, about 50,000 miles with no issues.

i would also need the hubs done.

blight ebay stuff is junk thus far- still googling
