Victor Wheel Adapters

Turnes out you are using cheap aluminium from substandard quality (casted 5080) which can break easily. For car parts like this it is mandatory to use high quality rolled aluminium (7075).

You know, I didn't start this here and I wouldn't have done it - but you did.

And by the way, this is not MY business. And not their business either.
Just a quick counter point... I have several Victor wheels and have ordered 4 adapters (from car-bone) in different thicknesses and finishes and they've all fit with no alterations required. As for the horn button, there's a groove in the adapter that allows for an O-ring (hardware store) that takes up the "slop" for a tight fit. The aluminum is definitely not cast.

Very satisfied customer.

A Kremer wheel, and a Moto-Lita. I used my old RGruppe key fob for the horn button center.
