If they are 3cm wide, it's possible to modify the arms... but it makes maybe same work than just machine whole new hub!

And its not necessary to make hub all new, old can be a bace and new
"adapter part" can be welded on it. When wheel is even close to original
offset you dont need to change bearings every summer.

Olli-Mr Negative or what??? Neutral
Idea Lets just see what the guy comes up with first. There are a number of different offsets availiable in the VW range and lets face it, you cant get any good 2cv wheels anymore Sad . If the offset is correct there should be no need to replace wheel bearings every year Wink .
Once he has made them i will try a wheel on the rear of my standard 2cv to see if it clears the rear wing/fenders Cool .

Dule-Yeah mate thats the stud pattern i'm on about, 205PCD(wide five).
Should be plenty of room in the middle to loose the 2cv hub. Not sure about covering the centre though. Surely if you fit the standard rim like your photo, you would also fit the hubcap as well?
And if you fit RADAR or similar alloys, then the centre is covered by the design of the wheel.
If i can borrow a few different types of VW wheel i will try them all on my 2cv to check for clearance Cool .
