    Icon9 Holden Camira wheels on Feugo - almost

    Slightly misguided by the fact that my $150 Feugo came with 4 Holden Camira factory mags (they look really nice on the Feugo, by the way) I went and picked up another couple from u-pull...

    One small hitch though: seems the centre hub hole is not quite up to spec - the Camira mags have a 57mm dia hole, the Fuego hubs need a hole 60mm dia

    On closer inspection, the mags that came with the car had been machined out to give that extra 1.5mm of room on each side that allows the wheels to go on (looks like a boring bar & lathe job...) ... I'm going to see if I can find a custom wheel place that will do a quick and dirty (but circular, hopefully) re-bore of the hub holes for me... should be safe enough, after all that is the size of the hub, and a wheel that just fits should in theory still have enough meat on it to be safe... I'll keep you guys posted on how it goes (and what I get fleeced for it ).

    If nothing else, theres always a couple of hours getting re-aquinted with my half round bastard (file)

    If anyone has got this done (at least one person has, hence the wheels on my car) or knows a decent place in Adelaide to do this, do tell

    Have had this done for a customer on a set of Camira wheels for a Fuego and my own set of Mille Miglias 15'' x 7.5'' for my Fuego. Had it done by a wheel specialist ( in Melbourne) and cost $25.00 each.

    When you get the centres done, make sure they do it to 60.1mm, which is the hole size in standard Renault wheels. The point 1 is to make sure you can actually get the wheels on and off.
    Cheers

    Congratulations, madact. It's a great look. Then again, I wouldn't be saying otherwise

    You could just about home that much off with a cylinder hone and your drill.
