Looks like a brilliant project! and perfect for a front wheel drive for Offroad use (wink wink) :D

It says rear wheel on the advert, I doubt it would fit on the front.

i don't think there would be much of an issue fitting it to a C5 rear, problem would be matching another wheel for the other side  ???.

from what i can see there also seems a largish extension to the hub on the 'far' side of the axle, OK for a bodacious type lady driver  ;D
