Hows this done then?



OK I can see that the disc is screwed/bolted (whatever) to something, but what?
The wheel behind?
A hubcap behind?

Is that a traditional style beauty ring, or the polished rim of an alloy?


I'm assuming the black bit is the center of an alloy wheel. Am I right?


Any ideas?

I'm sure you're right Neal Y:

So could I achieve a similar look using a steely as a base?

Beauty rings?

How would I attach it (the disc) to the wheel?

Anybody??

Drill & Tap the holes would be a start, but I wouldn't be too sure about them staying on at 80 mph down the road, on steelies there probably is'nt enough meat for loctite to get a good grip.
I would guess that there will be a balancing issue aswell.
Might be okay for just at shows etc.
If you were to go down the steelies route, welding might be a better option, with either the entire centre section missing or 5 holes at 112 PCD for the wheel nuts. Again balancing issue.

I think they are too Noddy for my liking.

surely you could just rebalance the wheel afterwards, using a "blind" balance where the weights are only on the back...

TBH I recon that mod would be really easy. That is surely an alloy wheel with the spokes drilled and tapped?!?

i agree... alloy wheel with drilled/ tapped holes and fitted with the discs over the top.. allen key hed screws.. looks like an easy mod and should work with steels as long as the bolt holes for mounting to the hud can be accsesed theres no reson not to put bolts through the front to mount the disc to the wheel with nuts on the back... but same again balancing could be an isue...
