Stock neon wheels are a 40mm offset, should be pretty close to Impreza wheels if memory serves. I have a set of Forester wheels with some General Grabbers AT2s that I want to put on but I don't think they will fit without a lift kit. I'm going to try and dig them out as well.

 

Edit: Maybe not, reading around shows they are maybe 53mm or 55mm, somewhere around that area.

hi everyone
 
I finally pinned down the waterjet today. he will be delivering 'some' of the 28 pcs that i need this week, so i will be running some on friday.  Friday is the only day i have available to use the machine.  Theres a chance he can find the rest of the material this week, but im not going to count on it. Thanks for your patience.
 
I helped ivan mount up his '80 brat this weekend, and noticed some improvements that i can make on your sets.  Also, since these were designed on a ea82, the older brat is a bit of a trick to get centered properly.  I will post this info when i write it up.

Hmmmm... Nice! 

 

Yes the older models do not have the centering 'ridges' like the EA82 models for the wheels/rims. They are 'lug centric'.

The rear tires were very close to rear sus mount had to trim the edge smooth and use a 5/16 spacer to clear but fits well and looks good got a test drive in no shakes wobbles worked well. Except for now the old ea61 has to work a lot harder to turn those big wheels

I've never been into adapters.....but these do seem well done. And the XT6 option is drying up everyday.   I gotta get a set for my 84 Sedan.

 

Sign me up for a set on the next run if you would be so kind.  Unless you got enough extra to add them into this run.  PM me for my address.

 

Thanks.

Hi , yes I know its too late to get in to this at this time around, but would very much like to be first ( or second or 15th ;) ) up if there is ever a second run. I have heaps of experience with getting stuffed shipped over here from the US,  and my only virtue is patience ( and honesty - did I really have to edit to get that in !! :banghead: ) , so I'm up for it being a very vairable schedule - or even no schedule at all - it seems a very well thought out product and I'd like to contribute to it happening.

 

Thanks

Hey Matt, where are you at with this? It has been some time since I received any messages about my adapters or even just you logging on to USMB.

Is everything OK?

Would love a set of these (4) but Im pretty sure the shipping cost to Australia would make it easier for me to find a machinist here to do it.

 

They look great and the cars look even better with the 5 stud rims on them.

hey guys, disappearing Matt is back

 

Leeroy, yours are in the mail, i PM'd you

 

everyone else, i will tot up a list and consider another run... i have realised I am pretty bad at internet business.

 

After taking a highway cruise in Ivans Brat, we had smooth ride at 55mph, but a vibration did develop at 65, and at 80mph it was getting ... more significant.  Since the ea81s have no centering lip on the hub, they may require a dialing in (literally ) with a dial indicator for maximum performance. I will make a video when i fix Ivans.  Its pretty easy.  Sorry Brat People, they were designed for a EA82 hub, what can i say.  They still work.

well there's been some interest in my adapters, so im starting a vendor thread.

heres the prototype: I have about 5000km on these, no problems yet.

2013-03-08173938_zpsbc7a8d3f.jpg

2013-03-09133950_zps8c6c4b1a.jpg

Stock material is 6061 T6 aluminum. standard material for all internet wheel spacers.

MOUNTING INFO

  • the 4x140 pattern is tapped with a M12 x 1.5 thread to facilitate bolting through the original stud holes to the hub. i will supply M12 x 30mm class 10.9 mounting bolts. you need to knock out your studs and put the bolts in their place, torque is 72 ft-lbs, blue locktite MANDATORY! retorque after 100kms.
  • Note how the bolt sticks thru a TINY bit on the above pic. This needs to be touched with an angle grinder or just filed off. I wanted max thread engagement, so you have to live with this.

STUD INFO - DORMAN 610-320 is recommended
  • the 5 x 100 pattern is drilled for an M12 1.25 stud with a 12.8mm knurl. the stud head size that i used was 19mm dia, by 4.5mm deep. check your stud head diameter and thickness before installing. you may need to grind them a bit. these holes are a PRESS FIT. i had to put about 1000psi on mine to get them seated, but you really don't want them to spin, so tight is good. Length of studs needed is M12 x 40mm long. Nissan pathfinder studs are M12 1.25 x 41.5mm - they should be close enough, you make the call. I am not providing studs.
  • When pressing - make sure the receiving die under the adapter is as small as possible, while still clearing the stud threads. A bit of oil is ok. Freezing the studs overnight may help too, but dont heat gun the adapter you may wreck the temper.

CENTER BORE
its 1.98 inches. you may have to grind your 36mm socket. mine fits.

RIM CENTERING
these provide a 7/8 offset, with a 3.5mm tall lip to center the rim on.

price will be 60$ a piece. for one adapter and 4 mounting bolts

thanks soobydoo, capn_r , 86BRATMAN, and bratman18 for the initial interest here: http://www.ultimatesubaru.org/forum/topic/137844-matts-gl-sedan/

edit note - i am filling in the necessary finalized details in bold , as i nail it all down.

Due to financial reasons, I am willing to sell my Un used adapters, with brand new lug studs as well. I paid 300 shipped for the adapters, plus the 40 for the studs. Pm me if you're interested.
