Mk2 hub re-drill to 4x108

11 posts in this topic

Okay guys,

Ive just bought a mk2 GTD but the inly wheels i want to fit come in 4x108 (ford fitment)

I dont want to use adaptors as it will make the offset morse worse than the spec of the wheels already.

Spec on the wheels i want to fit - 16x8 et25

Has anyone successfully re-drilled the hubs with no issues. Ive read that there isnt a lot of material left once the holes are drilled.

I know someone who had their hubs redrilled.... they had the original holes filled (welded, not polyfilla! ;) ) and then machined to put some strenght back in again, and then had them drilled to something weird and wacky....  I believe that doing it that way should retain pretty much all of their original strength...

I doubt ill need the 4x100 holes welded up as itll be 4x108, holes will be at 45 degrees so itll be strong enough (like a multi-stud alloy)

Im more concerned of the material thickness from the stud hole to the edge if the hub.

if there is enough space in hub just drill it,i done in with 5x100 by add extra 4 holes,simple way and very safe in my opinion

Adaptors?


Will affect offset too much. I can have some 10mm made from steel but will create an offset of et15, im trying to keep the wheels within the arches.

There is a guy up here, Scotland, near me that can do it. I'll ask him for a price and let you know.
