    Hub centric rings?

    Du you use hub centric rings on Jaguar rear axles?

    I take it you mean wheel spacers?
    People usually want the opposite effect of a narrower axle don't they?

    That's correct. Hub rings. Not spacers.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I'm used to wheels that are centered at the hub by the help of the rim's center hole in addition to the bolts.
    Apparently this is not the case on the Jaguar rear axles.

    An off topic car, but with an on-topic rear axle! And maybe even a sort of on topic rims?

    Well...not very impressive for you guys when it comes to performance, I'm afraid. 350 Chevy small block, 165 hp on the rear wheels (plans are for more, but who hasn't...) T56, 6 speed manual trans, independent front suspension, Jaguar rear.
    Everything is home made: All modificatons, interior, canvas top, paint etc.

    Just because it's different doesn't make it any less impressive.
    Always admired ability to bring something back from the brink and/or make it into something else, makes bolting a kit of parts together seem simple by comparison.
