Before anyone tells me to look at the alloys fitment page, i know what size i need.

Im looking at a set of wheels that are the Correct offset, size and width. The only problem is the PCD is 4-100 instead of 4-108.

Is it possible to change this?

No Matey, you would have to re-drill the holes in the wheels or use an adaptor plate but both are very expensive smack

It would be cheaper just to by the wheels again in the correct fitment

Also check the thickness of them *******s. Youd have to get a higher offset wheel to correct that difference in width,epsecially on a KA. Speaking of converters,hows the tranny goin?

Well done brain surgeon! doh

They don't make them in ford fitment anymore, thats why i asked.
Theyre mainly used on german cars such as VW's. Due to lack of demand, they ceased production of the ford fitment alloys and theyre as rare as rocking horse poo now.

Nice one Jay, will have a gander at those hub converters.

Here's a site that can do this for you for a lot less (I think) www.trackstore.co.uk

Here's the direct page for the conversion spacers
http://www.trackstore.co.uk/shop%20frame.html
If you can't find anything there then let me know.

Theyre VW fitment. Theyre the right offset, width, size and they come with the right tyres, but its the PCD thats wrong.

I'll steer clear of those hub converters. They'll space the wheels out way too far. Cheers anyway Dave. happy

I think I saw them on here, I'm not sure, but you can buy nuts that are 'wobbly' - meaning, you have the thread, a flexible part, and then the head, the thread 'bends' and goes into the hole and you can tighten them up safely. Works for large or smaller PCD's.
I'm pretty sure I didn't dream it...

You didnt dream it they do exist, try Motorworld for them.

I wouldnt touch them with a bargepole, I know what they are and I am not convinced they are 100% safe
