    question concerning custom wheels with wrong spacing for lugs

    Hi,
    I have a chance to get some oem style Compomotive wheels for my build but the company that used to make them no longer does. The thing is , I believe they were made for the spacing of a real 89 Countach. If I do get these wheels, how hard and how expensive would it be to redo rotors and lug spacing to fit them? I'm a novice on this so any advice , sourcing or knowledge would be great, please help...
    Cheers,
    William

    hi,
    Please forgive my lousy english.
    are u talking about pcd here? if yes,

    Theres a headache-less way. Simple and cheap.
    If u are currently using wheel spacers in your car,
    Make a set of same thickness spacer but with diffrent pcd..
    ie; if your donor is 100pcd, wheel is 120pcd, make it 100-120pcd...

    Other than these method will require some knuckle change/modification..
    Hope it helps an good luck..;D

    Re: question concerning custom wheels with wrong spacing for lugs

    so then the PCD is the diameter of the lugs through the center all the way around? how can I determine the PCD currently on my spacers???
