Now why would you want to do something like that?


Widebody 510... ok
Widebody 914... eh
Widebody RX... nope

Just get some with the correct offset. Much less expensive than getting a widebody kit...

Besides, I really don't think anyone makes one.

As far as I know they dont make em. You would have to get custom ones made

Not my cup of tea, but if you want em, make em.

im not sure of the offset, i only know that with the current lug pattern, the only wheels that fit are the tiny stock wheels and the peugot wheels.

i like that fact that someone actually makes aftermarket wheels for the peugeot and thus the rx.
