    wheel adapters ..

    i haven't had a problem fiitting wheels before i'm aware there are spacers for offset thats no problem, what about for hubs? stock diameter is 2" on mine, i'm looking at a set of rims but they have 2.75" hole in the middle, its easy enough too get rims that fit over hub but i like these & not seen in other size hubs, is there an adapter available for these? attached to a spacer i do not mind as i'd need one to clear the brakes.

    yeah its spigots i'm trying to find ones for these, the rims have been lying in a guys box room for over a year and never got used so never got fitting accessories, no centre caps, no spigots no tyres

    i just need centres and spigots

    cheers, the rim centres are unusual, they have 5 ridges 2.3mm inward, i'm looking into everywhere that sells wheels for spigots that'd fit

    Have you tried wheelmania? they have huge stock, just take a wheel there and see what they can do. Other alternative is to make some up, it only a ring to keep the wheels centred on the hub at the end of the day [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]
