    Here are some pics of my original RSR wheel (Thanks to Ron at Aase Sales)

    Notice that it was a hard plastic wheel, covered in black felt and then a thin cover of cotton before the leather was applied.

    Please post a picture of the rim and maybe one of the whole wheel

    Dumb question, but is it possible to drill the rivets and remove the hub from a later wheel to install an earlier hub that will bolt on to an early 911 without modification? I ask because I've purchased a nice leather wrapped 380mm wheel but it turned out to be a later version. I listed it for sale here in case somebody else might be able to use it as is but I'd really like to keep it and install it in my car. I wanted it to fit correctly however and I'm thinking a hub swap would be the only way it might. Does anybody know if this project is possible?

    While on these wheels, any idea where to find a 911 extended hub? It appears they are pretty hard to find unless somebody here has a stash of them laying around. I don't think anybody produces an after market one that looks factory.

    Hi Stretch.
    First, yes it is possible to replace the hub.
    Second, our own Cornpanzer has previously produced a reproduction of the extended hub. An old thread can be found here:
    http://www.early911sregistry.org/for...ers-(May-2011)

    OR.. you can buy a fully assembled extended hub 380mm wheel from Zuffenhaus.

    I think you would be better off selling your wheel and looking for a proper 380MM wheel to restore. Just my opinion and you know what those are worth.
    Extended hub wheel? Do you mean one like this? Those are very rare and I don't have a clue where you would find one.

    Regards

    I looked at the Zuffenhaus wheels and they're pretty nice. I've also seen Cornpanzer's hub extension but unfortunately they are NLA at this point. My real problem is I paid a fair amount for the wheel I've got thinking it was what I needed and I'm pretty sure I won't get my money back out of it. Because of this I thought I'd try and use it if possible. Ill probably just buy the Zuffenhaus wheel and do what I can to sell the one I've got. Its listed here in the for sale section but does anybody know what it's actually worth so I can sell it? Sorry to hijack the thread but thanks for the help,

    Stretch
