Hi guys!

Two guys from Norway, got an hold of an rare old VW K70, plan is bags rims and lots of low low.
Only awesome thing with this awesome car is that the wheel pattern is 5x130.

And as you might know, this is porche wheel pattern. Only problem is that we want to fit some small rims ( max 14" ), and it's not so easy to find porche rims in that size.


Theres a whole lot of adapters FROM blabla -> 5x130, not so much from 5x130 and down ( Found 5x130 -> 5x112 / 5x4.5 ). But thats not helping, since the 4x100 is the most common pattern to find small and retro rims in this side of the world.


So, is there anybody on the forum or someone who might know someone that could hook us up with some custom adaptors?

Would help us a lot, will throw up a little teaser picture later on to show you what we are planning for this one.

Greetings from Norway!

We have planned out a name for the project; "From Norway with air!" ^^
Need some more low up front, havent had the time to modify the suspension yet ( and god damn those tires are balloony! )

Thanks man! ill try and search them up.

Project will definitly be posted when its done, were currently looking at air-bags.
Since theres no premade system for this one ( or even spare parts at all :shifty ) we have to modify everything, so it will take some time. But i think it will look awesome at the end.

EDIT: Seems like the adaptec guys website is gone, hm, anyone knows someone else who makes this?

Not completely sure if the those PCD's are compatable that way around are they?!
might be worth a call to FK to see if that'll work.

actually if I were you I'd go down to 4x114.3 since there are a lot of low offset options there too.

adaptec is your best bet (for ready made adapters) but any good machine shop should be able to make them with a lathe and a mill. just do yourself a favor and get them made out of HIGH QUALITY aluminum/steel

OR you could run some EMPI's!
