Tech help on rims for a 83 Turbo.

Recommended Posts

I need some help from the experts in here.

I have found some rims that the fronts are 15"x7" with an approximite 4.25" backspacing. 

The rears are 15"x8" with approx 4.5" backspacing. Bolt pattern are 5x130. Will these bad boys fit?

Working on finishing the carbs at the moment abd therefor not up to speed on the wheels but by chance I might have to pounce on these.

Thanks Rasmus

The backspace measurents you wrote down mean nothing as just having a measured back space does not tell you the offset, So going off this would be impossible to say if they would fit or not, Also the 5 x 130mm is a pain as its only 10mm out from the lotus bolt pattern so think even hub adapters would be out of the question as the thread wall on the hub adaptor would be to thin,

I know some companys can change the pcd on hubs but it would probably be easier to buy the correct wheels or something nearer in the first place.

I personally would not touch these wheels, to much work even if you could get them to fit. regards danny
