2004 GT3 with Center Locks?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am considering purchasing a used 2004 GT3 but the car appears to have 9ff centerlock wheels installed. I don't care for the look of these wheels and would rather have the factory GT3 5 bolt rims installed. Does anybody know what is involved in swapping these two wheels sets and/or hubs. The car has factory PCCB as well.

Thanks,

Clinton Olson

Are you sure they are TRUE centerlock wheels and not a dummy lock that still has the five bolt holes?

I got 9ff wheels with center lock on my car, the only thing You need to change is to take away the "five bolts" thats are inside the rim, on my car it's also spacers that are fitted with this bolts and replace this bolts with original wheel bolts. You also need to change the center bolt to a original center nut (for wheel bearing). The center bolt is only locked with a spring and a washer.

The job is done less than 30 minutes.

Yes....those are the exact wheels on the car. I am sure your solution should work. Thank you!
