I had thought the same thing Rexy. Or maybe tack weld them to the wheel. Or be really smart and follow the guidance of the second paragraph, ie making an adaptor ring out of alloy but incorporating it into a spacer. Something like the attached. These are to fit Simmons onto BA-BF brakes with 5/4.75" stud pattern. The ring would be only 1.1mm thick, it's been strengthened by incorporating it into a plate that sandwiches between the wheel and the disc. The idea is you put these on the Simmons wheels and lock them in place with the wheel studs, keeps the rims co-centric with the hub.

Hi Guy's,

would the "ring" be only 1.1mm thick enough give it strengthen 


Regards Mando.

Why wouldn't it work? The idea is to keep the wheel in the right place, so it sits co-centric with the hub. The wheel studs then clamp it in place.
