Anyone know the wheel size and bolt pattern on the M12's?

As above, does anyone know the wheel size and bolt pattern on the M12's? Also, it appears they used HRE manufactured wheels, can anyone confirm this?

Re: Anyone know the wheel size and bolt pattern on the M12's?

u've been waiting a long time for a response, but i suggest that a leeter to lambo or a visit would help, my guess is that it runs the same pattern as the diablo, if not they would know, i think they supplied the wheels. small chance but gerald might know, if u visit his watercraft site, u can email him, he'll reply, i do it every once in a while.

There were a fair amount of shared components, but inboard of the uprights was unique to the M12. Also the engine mounts backwards in the Vector as compared to the Diablo. It's why the back of the Vector is so long. The transmission on the Lambo mounts mid ship where the ZF in the M12 is behind the V12. The chassis are completely different.
Losing the lambo engine deal was the killing of Vector in the M12 era. When Lambo was no longer obligated to sell engines to Vector, they stopped and tried to forget that it had ever happened.

I can't confirm the brand of wheels or the bolt pattern, but my Vector M12 Owner's Handbook, part number T02-22-010, states the following:

Tire MFR: Michelin
Tire Model: MXX3TL
Front Tire Size: 235/40ZR18
Rear Tire Size: 325/30ZR18

Tire Pressures:
Front: 40 PSI
Rear: 39 PSI

Wheel Sizes:
Front: 8" Wide x 18" Diameter
Rear: 12" Wide x 18" Diameter

Hope this helps.
