Hi Guys,

I have recently sold my Suzuki Bandit 1200 Motor bike and bought a little Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe with the proceeds plus a little extra.

The little MX-5 also has 5 hole wheels with 114.3 spacing. However i have been told that the centre hub of the Mazda is 67mm and the Vitara is 60mm ???.

The tyres on the MX-5 are a few years old and of different makes. My plan is to get 4 new tyres for it.

However for the sake of £80 i am also considering getting the MX-5 wheels stripped and powder coated in Birmingham, before fitting the new tyres, just freshen them up a bit.

I was hoping that i might be able to fit my spare summer vitara 17" rims to the MX-5 whilst i get this done, rather than leave it on the driveway on Axle stands and Milk Crates for 3 or 4 days.
I wouldn't drive the car with the Vitara wheels fitted, just leave it 'resting' on them for a few days.

I have heard of Hubcentric adaptors, however they seem to be quite expensive for my needs.

Any idea's

Sorry to hear about the loss of your Bandit  Sad

Is your MX5 on studs or bolts?
As long as your not driving it you could possibly fit 2 or 3 flat washers to the studs to clear the bigger diameter centre bore and should leave enough thread to secure the wheel nuts
Just had a set of 16" Sedici rims powder coated for my dad's Vitara S at Central Wheels...

Hmmm.. i might look into that over the weekend. Cheers Karl.

I see that Black is the new silver these days Smile
I went the other way and got my Gloss Black S Misti's painted silver Smile

Glad i kept my 16" Sedici alloys when i sold it. They have come in handy .

I recall you had the optional Sedici alloys?

I managed to get these Eleganza alloys at the right money and even though I have never seen them fitted to any Suzuki model they are cast Suzuki on the inside.....

I was tempted with a graphite grey finish but as my dads S is white with the factory black 17" rim I thought the Sedici rim in black would not look out of place yet with a decent tyre on it over the Conti's...

Only downside is that mine now looks a bit neglected after last week's Shropshire storms/flooding...

Me and the missus did speak to our folks about the great Shropshire storm last week...
... from the balcony of our hotel in Tenerife. 2 weeks of clear blue skies and 25 deg+ every day -
