Spigot rings

Post by KrisB » Mon Feb 02, 2015 7:06 pm

I have bought some 16" Borbet A's for my car and when I have fitted them there is a gap between the centre of the hub and the wheel. The car doesn't run at the moment. The wheels are ET20 (if thats the right number for help) Can anyone recommend some spigot rings that will help?

Most Borbet wheels are 64mm centre bore, VW is 57.1mm.

eBay is your best bet - search "Borbet VW spigot". Pretty sure I got mine from the first "hit" -

or if you can't wait, your local alloy wheel specialist will sell them.

for preference, go for metal ones over plastic, you (and by that i mean kack handed tyre fitters) are less likely to break them fitting and removing the wheel
