To get the track width correct and to clear the UFO brakes (which isn't a
consideration here), you'll need a set of 15 mm spacers, and twenty of the
+20mm wheel bolts (only oversize available), ball seat.
I put exactly this setup on my V8Q - it fits perfectly, and oh, my does it
ever look nice.
My spacers came from the UK, but shipping would have been $90 (!) - I had
someone drag them along in carry-on luggage, and you should have heard him
piss and moan (and it was jsutified - these things are HEAVY.)
Make absolutely sure you get hubcentric spacers. Best price I found in the
US was about $65/pr, after some serious google time.
