AFTERMARKET

    • John Titus has devised a wheel spacer that permits mounting of a commonly available 5 x 160mm aftermarket wheel designed for a European Ford Vehicle (15 x 6.5 inch or 16 x 6.5 inch rim). The spacers were to be made available commercially, however, plans were abandoned due to draconian US product liability laws.
