Hello all,
I know this has been discussed but I could not find it. Looking for an auto solid space saver rim/tire for the 4x115 bolt pattern on the sport. Wanting to put one on to make room to get my kids little 4 wheeler past the rear tire in the toyhauler. Actually trying to upgrade from bumper pull TH to fifth wheel TH and trying to figure out how to make it all fit.
Is anyone else doing something like this? I remember a thread like this with a pic but I could not find it. Not having much luck finding 4x115 bolt pattern spare but I am pretty sure some foreign cars use them. Any help is appreciated.

I think you might be referring to a discussion about using 114.3mm x 4 wheels on the 115 x 4 Arctic Cats. This link shows a list of 114.3 (i.e. 4.5") x 4 vehicles: <a href="http://www.wheelsupport.com/list-of-bolt-pattern-4-x-114-3/" target="_blank">Bolt pattern | Stud Pattern : List of Bolt Pattern 4 X 114.3</a>

Each hole would be off-center by about .014". I believe you would bend (or snap) the studs when you tighten the lugnuts.

thank you but that is not the one I was speaking of. I agree you would bend of snap the studs. The one I was referring to had a pic of the donut spare on the wildcat in the toyhauler and a few cars that match the 4x115.

Looking at a KZ 280TH 5th wheel toy hauler to replace my bumper pull for more toy room myself.
Toy haulers with a garage just don't have enough space for my requirements.
While only 30' it's the only one with enough room for my Sport & a cruiser while still being able to access kitchen on the fly.

I think it's the Honda cars that has the same bolt pattern as the cats, Rock Hopper had a set on his. If you can't find the thread send him a private message and he will get back with you.

I have a set of spacers with 4 x 4-1/2' pattern no problems after 5,000 miles of rough trails.

Besides the 10 mm studs have no problem breaking on their own :p

Hondas and Acuras are not 115. They are 114.3mm/4.5".

Black Cat, are the holes in your spacers flat, or are they cone shaped? I think flat spacers & flat lug nuts would work with a little bit of slotting and careful assembly.

Even though you've made your spacers work, if they are cone shaped and use cone shaped lug nuts, there is going to be a lot of stress that was not accounted for in the design of the hubs.

The difference between 114.3 and 115mm is (4.5 - 4.5275..
.027 of an inch or less then 1/32. OP wants to bolt a wheel on for loading in the trailer. Find a wheel and try it, don't torque it down ridiculously. If still worried oversize the holes by 1/64.
