Hi Pete,

FE looks awesome with the wheels, what size are they & what size tyres are you running?

Thanks,

Hi Dean

F90 simmons 16 X 7 running cheap arse blue streak or something they are 205 45 16 16s are a bastard of a tyre i have a set of new245 50 16 and i also have 225 50 16,s and they are all too  wide cos of the rim offset.
I have a full set of 215 55 16 and they are too tall  so i have 3 spare sets of tyres.

205/50/16,s would be perfect but not an option on the day.

I do a fair bit of that sort of stuff machined the cut ends and chammfered in the lathe.
tig welded ends back on they were cut 100mm in so its just on the outside of the u bolt.
axles are 10mm shorten 1mm cut off wheel
there was enough spline to not have to respline.
No noises or vibrations very happy and a first for a holden no diff leaks.

haha
the ol' 1 mm cut off wheel......
thats what i thought.
people say you cant do that sort of thing,
really ya arent changing the grain structure much at all
i'm a fabricator i really worry about all these technicalities,
at the end of the day its about safety hey,
and the know alls tellin you "ya cant do that"
can get stuffed in my opinion..............
awesome mate
love some ingenuity

They are the ones from turkey.
The first one took a bit of stuffing around as the rims have tubes so i pulled the valve out
And clamped one edge of the tyre down to my work bench sit the insert around the edge and use the palm of your hand to slap the insert back under the bead . I also used meguirs clear tyre shine it made it slippery and easy to insert.
This stuff also cleans the white to a beutiful finish..
