modifying front hubs

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Has anyone modified the front hub bolt patter to match the rear?.  It would give us a wide choice of aftermarket and high quality wheels.  I would appear that its only weld/fill the existing wheel bolt holes in the hubs and re-drill and tap for the new 5 x 114.3 bolt pattern.  the hub diameter can  be adjusted with a centering ring on the wheel.

Good luck drilling the hub! Its very very hard stuff and for a good reason, welding may affect the materials strength (All in my humble opinion of course!!)
