    Gen 2 rims on Gen 1 - it can be done

    Just thought I'd share with you guys:

    Sold my Gen 2 wheels to a member here on the board. He's putting them on a Gen 1 V10.

    Pix are in order of manufacture.

    66.5" spigot bore of the Gen 2 rim
    Outer diameter roughing
    Inner diameter boring (then finish cut outer to make sure all runs perfectly true)
    Spacer in hand
    Spacer in wheel

    I expect we'll see pix of Gen 2 wheels on a Gen 1 here soon.

    Re: Gen 2 rims on Gen 1 - it can be done

    How about the 20" 10-spoke-Y design with 245/30 front and 305/30 rear summer tires? Or is it only the 5 spoke Gen2 wheels that will fit with the spacers


    I really want the ten spoke stock gen 2 wheels....

    What you're seeing in the pictures is the Gen 2 V10+ wheels.

    I'm not sure what size tires you'll need - fronts are the same between generations, rears are larger in diameter on the Gen 2 than the Gen 1 by about an inch in overall diameter.

    Somewhere there's a post with cross reference sizes for correctly sizing 20" tires for 20" rims on the Gen 1 cars.

    Thank you so much for the help, this really is quite an undertaking but the Gen2 10 spokes to me are worth some effort lol

    I'm the guy who bought them. Pretty excited the tracking number says I will have them on Wednesday and I have an appointment Friday morning to get the tires mounted and the wheels put on the car with HnR springs all at once .

    I will post pics Friday afternoon when it's all done.
