Question Stelvio / SBW chair

Just the beginning
Just started to prepare My 2010 Stelvio for its up and coming SBW chair. First off is the wheels, I have am going for a car wheel conversion, so first off choose the wheels, After a lot of thought I have gone for 16" x 6.J alloys with 32mm offset and 5 x 100mm stud pattern, I want to use them on both the bike and the chair so need to build adapters for the 4x80m Guzzi wheel and the 5 x 120mm BMW hub used on the chair, Starting with the bike it looks like a two part affair, I have drawn it up and made a wood mock up and it looks like I will need to run about 1/4" out of centre to clear the top bolt that clamps bevel box to the swing arm. Bit of a shame but the pay off is a good choice of tyres which will allow me to run close to standard gearing or drop almost 10% just with rubber.
Anybody done this ?
Next I hope to build a set of forks that will use another same size wheel so that carrying a spare is possible
Pictures to come if I can work out how to post them
