Whats the 156 PCD suit? Banshee or something similar? Is the hub designed for a standard trailer stub?

Yes the stub is a trailer/Holden type stub, as per the plans.
Stud pattern is Banshee front which is what we have been standardising our buggies to for the past two years.

No, the disc mount is not Banshee.
We only use the Banshee pattern as this type of aftermarket rim is very common.
Nothing else is common with a Banshee.
Our wheel studs are even bigger, we use 7/16" instead of 10mm.

If your using the large twin piston, (gold) calipers then linish a tiny amount, about 1mm off of the corner of the brake pad.
Its the brake pad itself that slightly touches, not the caliper.

No, 4 stud only.
We rarely sell 5 stud now.
5 stud are a steel hub.
Same price.

Maybe just the disc center diameter? :?

66mm centre hole in the disc.
I'm not a fan of the "wave" discs.
It’s really a novelty as all it does is reduce pad contact area.

Tony could you tell me what the centre hole diameter of the wheel should be with these hubs. Ive got some wheels with 105mm centre but Im thinking that may leave the scallops in the hub exposed to gather mud.

The hubs have a 63mm location diameter.
But we rely on the studs.
Often we use rims with a large 100mm hole & it looks great with the hubs exposed.
The holes are heavily tapered & I have not had problems with mud gathering in there.
