Really cool.Thanks for the tech.Wheels turned out nice and look great on the Lark..
good post ,my Edsel may get the same type of treatment.
Man.........you Ca. guys got it made. Something like this around here would be rusted up to the door handles!!
I found this by searching, and would like to add that as most all of us run 5 lug, the magic number is .588 (0.58778, actually)
You take the bolt circle and times that by the .588 factor to get center to center dimension of the studs.
Don't ask me why. Some Greek guy dun figured it, many, many years ago.
...That and Google found it here:
I am about to use this to go from 4.5 to 5.5". I figure if the drilling is accurate to the punch mark, I can do it in a drill press.
Measure out from the centering ring of the hub- in my case I want the new bolt circle 1.43" outside of that hub, and mark them off with a scribe.
great work Kev, and nice Buick....
Now go find me some Daisy's to modify for my Olds.
