Sweet wheels David

What make are they and do you know what offset they are? My biggest fear about getting new wheels is paying out loads of money then wishing they were just a bit more offset but your's seem to fill the arches very nicely.

I can't decide on wheels either.

On one hand I really don't want to change them while they have plenty of tread on them and I like the look of my 16" wheels but it would be good if there just a bit further out in the arches.
Anyone tried wheel spacers although with studs and wheel nuts it becomes a bit more difficult to add them and keep a safe amount of thread engagement to hold the wheels on?

Craig.


You should be able to get longer wheel studs to replace your existing ones. They press in and out of the wheel hubs (or they did on older cars).

Ooohhh yeah, You're right.

Just looked at the workshop manual and the studs on the front and rear are a simple press in stud and you can even get them out by just taking the brake disc off, no need to take the hub and bearing apart.

Interesting...... :)
