i have a nice set of wheels for my car already. i dont wanna have to get rid of them.

and being illegal doesnt stop people anyway.

it wouldnt be hard to make a hub either way. not much change to the drawing.

both could be made if enough interest was shown

Don't mean to be a prick or anything, but if you can't do I cheaper than UPC, then there's no point in the exercise.

Do more r&d before you go gauging interest. There will be plenty of questions, as there has been already, that people will want to know the answers to.

As long as standard offset is retained which UPC do not offer this could be a very interesting.

I think you'll find there's a reason the UPC kits don't retain std offset.

i understand that the face of the hub is a long way off where the disc sits. more then most discs, however i think that it can be made up with a bracket. it is easily possible to retain the pre au offset

Is very interesting and something I would look at doing. I have some nice wheels already as well and keeping the same offset would be preferable.

I only know of one place that claims to keep original offset, and that's Race Brakes Sydney.
If you could find out what caliper and disc combo they use, you will be in with a chance.
All others seem to have a 10-14mm increase, which might not be a problem depending on the width of your wheels.

It will be awesome if you can get it done, but like I said above, you will need to do more R&D so you can confirm that it is possible to retain the original offset before you get too many hopes up.

Ok so the hubs are nearly drawn up. Then will send them to the machine shop after that. Will have some prices after that.

Also I managed to pick up some r32 gtr sumitomo front 4 piston and rear 2 piston calipers for 180 bucks. Bargain of the century! So gonna make up some brackets for them. They are pretty easy to find cheaply so if people are interested have a look on eBay and gumtree.

Cheers Callum.

Did this go anywhere?
I'm keen on a set that retain close to factory offset so count me in. Prefer to use terry calipers if possible.

Cebco do a 330mm kit that retains standard offset. I had one. RBS also do a kit that retains standard offset.

Where the hell can you find the cebco kits? Cebco doesn't have a webby do they?
If these kits come in cheaper than rbs/hoppers/upc kits ill definitely be interested.
On a side note, new wheels for e series are becoming scarce now, at least where I've been looking. Might be worth changing to au+ offset...

Believe Cebco was bought out by Race Brakes.

The cheapest on the market is UPC. Race Brakes Sydney do an E series offset all others are +25 or AU/BA.
