5x205 to 4x100 conversion

Post by Stütz »

Is there an adapter (as a temporary fit) for a 5x205 to 4x100 conversion on a 1974 standard bug? Alternatively should we just modify the current hub and drums to accept the 4x100 PCD? If so, who in Cape Town does this?

We will switch to discs all 'round later (Rui) but for now an adapter or mod will do. Will be fitting 205/40x17's. I assume there will be slight clearance issues too?! This is all on a standard beam.

If you run a 35ET the rears will probably stick out slightly when using adapters. Fronts usually fit nicely

Tony, I've read about the turning circle issue. Maybe a nice little Mendeola setup will fix that! :hangloose:
