xxr 530 +35 mounted on 2012 hatch
 
18x 8.75, +35 :here you go i would assume that this is a first. i have machined my xxr wheels to mount to the 2012 focus bolt pattern. i also got new nuts that will work for my system. i have used a +35 offset and it looks good. i am running stock ride height so rubbage wont be an issue with 225 tires, these will sit perfectly flush to the car.

heres a pic of the new nuts and washers

heres the modded wheel. i machined the hole to be a snug fit to the new lug nuts and will use hub centeric rings for safety

UPDATE: done and mounted.
+35 offset is so perfect

Nice wheels. And they will look great being so flush. Which tires you putting on them?

You have balls for changing the mounting surface of your lug nuts, why not get wheels that actually fit

i run my own machine and fab shop have built many race cars. these are not the first wheels i have modded in this way, our datsun rally car needed a similar mod and has had no issuse under the abuse of rally racing. so i am very confident that the strength is more than sufficient. besides i had these wheels i was going to use them on my evo but i ended up selling that car so the wheels needed a good home.

as for tires im running achilles atr sport 225 40 18. i ran these tires on my evo with great results, they are quite sticky and have excelent wet and dry traction.

Umm... I wish you the best, I really do. But those oblong holes aren't what I would call confidence inspiring. You better do all you can to get those wheels hub centric because I don't see this ending very well.

adamturbo 11-19-2012 06:18 PM

i have tight hub centric rings all machined up, the lug nuts themselves are a snug fit to the hole in the wheels. this really isnt as bad as you think it is. i do have experience with this all tolerances are to the thousandth of an inch.

i don't care what anyone says these wheels will look good on there. also i am assuming you machined better quality wheels before...
