^ Thanks. useful link.

Now, about centre caps for these....

I found two options on the Toronto Subaru Club forum, both in this thread:

http://www.toronto-subaru-club.com/f...-steelies.html


One is from a Chevrolet:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/220874635632

The other is really my kind of solution: cheap and effective...

http://www.toronto-subaru-club.com/f...nter-rims.html

It involves getting some of these 2 inch knockout closures which are used in electrical work:



Tarting them up by either painting them or using some sort of wrap on them. This example uses carbon fibre wrap:



The fitting them to the wheel:



Sounds pretty simple and inexpensive.

What a top idea

It has given me an idea too
Actually, it might also be something others on here could be interested in too

If you can remember which section or anything that would be good.

In other news, the ball seat conversion spacers arrived from Mr Lugnut today.

$1.30 each, plus postage of $12.00. they came in an express post bag.

They are referred to as a "VW Radius Washer".

I found the company very good to deal with. Find out more about their products at:
