Hub adapters

Post by Niall » Mon Jan 06, 2014 9:02 pm

Decided to get on the 'scene' wagon and get some ATS classics, but 13 just doesn't look right so I'm shopping for some 15"s.
They fit 4x130 and I'm pretty sure I need 4x100 so apparently I need to pay silly money for adapters so they fit?
Am I missing something or does it really cost 300 quid for a set of 4.

Is there an alternate option?

I think the ATS Cups look a lot better and they come in 15"4x100.

Sounds like you've got beetle spec 15's.

Don't think that you can get adaptors for them to fit a 4x100 - not certain but pretty sure that there wouldn't be enough safe space between the holes on the hub where you then apply the adaptor. These guys should be able to confirm - http://www.larkspeed.com/index.pl?c=HRH ... s=category



Apart from one set that Mr Brown sold last year I've never seen a 15'' Classic. They were 6 x 15's if you check his Mk1 Storm thread out.

Seen a picture of a Mk1 with some 7x15's fitted but the offsets were not practical, chap called Oli tried it out - he's the former owner of Ajays Mk1 currently up for sale in S.Wales.

They definitely do them, they're priced on the link you posted, it's just the silly amount of money they cost that's worrying me. It comes to over £1000 to get them with quality tyres. I might have to abandon the idea and get the bright orange ats cups on eBay.

I was eyeing up those orange cups too! Then decided to get some ****** instead, as orange won't go with the colour I opted for

I'm expecting them to clash horribly, which is exactly why I bought them. No one has orange wheels because they want to be subtle

Must say I quite like the idea of orange wheels: go for it. If the fun wears off, get 'em repainted.
