Alloy on the Bonnet

Has anyone ever seen a bonnet spare tire carrier that would work with an Alloy wheel?

I just got one, but it only works with a steel wheel, and before I get the steel wheel, I was wondering if getting the alloy on the bonnet is even possible?
Thanks

They require a full diameter hole in the middle. Should be easy to make something up

yep, if you have the 3 prong set up they just need to be spread a little.

There's a 3-studded holder for alloy wheels, part no. ALR2380, callout #14 here -

I was going to post the above ^^^^ earlier but got called away at work.

I've got a (well, "half") of the 3 studded holder here, it's a normal steel one, with 3 holed drilled in it to line up with 3 of the lug nuts.

Mine doesn't have the studs attached, but i assume it's just 3 studs welded in, and you then use normal alloy lug nuts to fix the wheel in place.

To mount the metal ring onto the bonnet itself, you need the 2 large washers (number 18) that go under the 2 fixing bolts (number 16)...

You place the bolts through the metal ring, the the washers go under the ring (and thus directly on top of the upright posts), this stops the ring from dropping down right onto the bonnet.
