Default Manual tire changer 5 wide adapter?

Iíve looked around and thereís very little information on this. So Iím asking you lot if you have any ideas.

Yes I got a manual tire changer and bubble balancer because the local places refused to mount tires on the vw wheels due to them not being stock.



So yeah. I need to make an adapter Iím thinking about getting some rebar some grade 8 nuts and one of those flat black iron pipe mountings flanges You know the ones with the 4 bolt holes and welding up an adapter

Apparently such adapters existed during the 1960ís and 70ís but we ainít in those times anymore!

Not unless one of you pack rats has one them hanging on the wall

Not for use on an actual car, but on a machine. Iím uncertain if those adapters wouldnít be a weak link when changing a tire. For some reason I can just see them bending.

I may just go make what I have in mind. Iíll post pictures of it when Iím done

First idea I had... but I donít have spare brake drums.

Instead I got my 13-1.50 nuts a bunch of metal and One of those black iron pipe flange things you know the one with the large 4 holes.


Yeah after a bit of welding it works! Looks like a drunken 1980ís mini camaro wheel but it works.



Nowhere near perfect could have gone better but at this point I donít care.

I had an old cement slab behind my garage that I bolted my HF tire changer to. Makes a huge difference. Not sure what Iím doing at my new house. The problem with owning a tire changer is you end up with old tires.

Here's mine, and yes, it's mounted on a granite gravemarker. Just a regular VW 4 lug to wide 5 adapter.
