Is their a Ring inside the abarth alloys already?

Hey, im looking into putting fiat 500 abarth alloys in my GP. I need spigots but the size is guna be hard to make. I was just wondering if there was already a ring inside the alloy that i could take out, so the spigot could be bigger and stronger.

Nope, the rings are as they are.

The stud spacing on the GP is out by a couple of mm in any case, unless you'd want to bodge them on with wobble bolts

It's not really a bodge tbh. They're really no different in a sense to an eccentric bolt except that the eccentric part of the bolt works differently.

It's only the tapered part of the bolt that wobbles anyway....

Don't listen to idiots like the ones in the forum below who say that the bolts are going to bend.

This is probably the best explanation of wobble bolts I've seen
