Hey, 

I'm in the process of putting some 15" Tolimans on my bus...but having a hard time getting my head around what I need spacer, stud, nut etc. Hours of trawling through forums and I'm still not much wiser!

Can you remember if you just put the spacers and conversions studs on yours? 

My ET is the same as yours (37), just the 15" version, not your 16".

I thought the spacers were for bringing the ET down, but I understand an ET of 37 is well within limits?

Many cheers,

Aaron

Yes mate, cup 1's. I know they say 52/55 is ideal but it's only a few mill difference or am I way off?

Getting a little confused but I think I'm nearly there now...

Will this set up work?

"Wheel details are 2x7 and a half J x 17 inch front wheels with offset ET52 and then 2x 9J x 17 inch rear wheels with offset ET47"

Need help with adapters etc advice please??

The studs were already there on mine, but I believe you just press them in or out ( or hammer them :) ). Good guide on Brickwerks website I think.

Pffff... no idea. Long gone now.
I'll have a scan back through the photos and see if I can work it out.

Clears rear door no problem. machined hubs and 312mm discs will add about 8 mm to track but it looks ok
