Hi im looking for a pair of wheels for a Trike im building using a Jag Irs axle and was wondering if 5 x 120 wheels from BMW's etc will fit. In theory they should as 4.75" in metric is 120.65 so should be close enough with a bit of tickling out but not sure if the centre bore will be the same. Anyone tried this?Thanks.

4.75" is 120.64999999999mm so the important thing is to have the wheel locate on the hub centrally (spigot ring?). the amount of misalignment per stud is just over 0.3mm so ought to be fine as long as the wheel is held central.

Thanks thats what i thought. either use a spigot ring or get the wheel bored out if its a bit small. There's alot more options now as wanted some nice wide 17" or 18" diameter wheels.
