Well I guess you can get them where you got the pictures. Summit Racing et al should be able to help. Or do you want them in India?

i know i can get them where i got the picture from. I am looking for them in india so i can take them with me. I am not gonna pay $60 for one piece....the manufacturing cost is nowhere near there. I want to get it from here so its cheaper.

Hi,

you can get the wheel adapters made according to your specs. ask a good alloy wheels dealer in your city. he will be able to help you definitely. a guy in my city makes these. he also makes steering wheel adapters to fit after market st wheels in any car. these adapters shouldnt cost you more than 1500 rs. Make sure the guy has good rep.

And if you want i can find out if i can get them manufactured here and send it to you. let me know the exact specs.

Depends on where you live. In Bangalore you could go to Auto Fusion in Koramangala. In Delhi, there's Autopsyche.

hi spawnofsatan,

a little correction. they dont make the wheelbase wider, they make the track wider. Wheel base is measured from front to rear.

Thanks

why dont you try to make them. any small workshop having a lathe machine by the way the guy has to be good at his work. i am talking through experiance i had made spacers for my fiat[premier padmini]. you got to take your wheel rim and one of your front or rear hub for daimensions to him so he under stands what you need. i had got my spacers made in mild steel, they are heavier than the imports but they worked out fine for me.
