    Am making an adapter for the finial drive to mount a car wheel to.
    The wheel is a centre mount wheel, not off set.
    Should I have studs to mount the wheel aka car ?
    or go for a bolt on wheel to the adapter which bolts onto the final drive ?
    I wish to leave the adapter bolted to the bike & only remove the wheel when needed.

    I have an old Adelaide Wheel works wheel that has seen better days, I was thinking of using the centre out of that and then cutting down a 4/5 bolt wheel hub to weld to it.
    Do you wish to sell an adapter ? 115mm aprox. bolt pattern ? & how much ?

    Can you share any details about the wheel / tire combo? I've been looking for steel wheels for my DMC rig.

    Thanks!

    I'm guessing you're in the US mate so you probably won't have a clue what I'm talking about, but the wheel centre is from a holden commodore (Chev product her in Aus) and I had it welded into a 4" wide steel rim. The tyre is just a 15" x 4" tyre that you can buy most places.
