    Fitting BK299's to my coupe?

    Hey Guys,

    Nearly finished refurbishing my BK299's. I ordered a set of bolts and spigot rings from BK Racing.

    Ok my first question is, what is a spigot ring and what does it do? The guy at BK Racing said I'd definately need them. So I just said OK.

    Second question BK299's have 10 bolt holes on them. However you only use 5 bolts. So you are left with 5 holes. Can you get something to go in the empty bolt holes? Its hard to explain. I tried explaining to the guy at BK Racing and I just confused him. It would look good if I could get some plastic imitation bolts to fit into the other 5 holes on each wheel.

    Can't wait to finish painting the alloys, get the rubber on them and get them on the car.

    Thanks in advance

    John

    spigot rings make up the gap between the bore in the centre of the wheel and the spigot on the hub - so the wheels is centred correctly. Without them you'll get wheel wobble.

    as for the 5 spare holes... unfortunately it's the perennial problem with multi-fit rims and AFAIK there's no aftermarket 'fake bolts solution'

    LOL maybe I can Buy a set of BK bolts shorten them and stick them into the holes with no more nails? Although it could get messy and £40 for a set of bolts aint cheap.

    And there's a chance (well 20 chances) of one coming out at high speed

    Not worth it IMO
