I was not going to modify Alloys - you don't need to there are loads of the correct size rims available.

Your modification in your write up is not particularly safe, you are modifying 100mm PCD rims to fit 101.6mm (4") stud spaicings of a Dandy. This does not give the correct seat landing on the nut taper and creates unequal forces in the studs bending them in towards the hub centre. I say this as an engineer who has designed & built my own suspensions on cars so I know what I;m talking about. There is no need to modify any rims as brand new ones are only £27.00 each.

The wheels in the link are the correct PCD for anyone and are 100% safe to fit. Zero back space will fit the tyres neatly in the arches with no problems with clearance.

Modifying alloy rims is also fine if you have a lathe large enough and understand the mettalurgy of the rims.
