I've set about cutting the centres out of my 15 inch 8 spoke Sammi rims Twisted Evil. After some research I've found that the centres have the same outer diameter as the centres on a 16" wheel from a series 3 88".

The plan is to basically remove the centres from the series wheel and then weld the sammi centres in with a deeper offset so I'll save on wheel spacers and still get about 3" extra track, rhino ray offers this service to make your original rims deeper but I like to be different.

The reason I decided to undertake this is to get the extra axle width and rim diameter without tigoing for the oh so common grand vitara rims which now fetch a premium on ebay and alike.

I got 9 series rims for gratis (these only fetch around £10 a set on ebay anyway) and I have 6 sammi 8 spokes to mess up.

One thing to note with the series rims is some have welded centres and some are steel riveted (I have a mixture of both), I reckon the riveted one will be easier to dismantle but they'll have to run tubes incase the rivet holes don't plug airtight.

I will post some pics as it gets under way.

I chose the landy rims as I had a set knocking about and the centres of the rims were the right size. I have shelved this one for now tho as the tyres I planned on using on the rims have been used for something else, I did get one done tho so it'd work.
