  2. FF 17" Replica Halibrand Wheel/Hub interference

    Tire & Wheel Forum
    I just received my Factory Five 17" Replica wheels, 17x9 fronts and 17x10.5 rears. In test fitting the fronts, I find that one of the wheels will not fit over the right side hub while the other wheel fits on this side OK. Is this a common issue with FF wheels? Any recommendations? Return to...

    Factory Five Roadsters

I have tightened the spindle nut down to where there is no play in the bearings and the wheel spins smoothly. I have now heard that the bearings need to be tightened to 250 foot pounds. This seems...

    Factory Five GTM Forum
