Right, loads of what fits what doesn't questions at the moment.

Only reply to this thread if you have fitted alloy wheels and you have the following data.

  • wheel name/style or if OEM then what its off.
  • Dimensions of wheel(s)
  • Tyre sizes.
  • Use of adapters.
  • Use of shims
  • Machining required.
  • Offset of wheel(s)
  • Clearance problems?
  • Longer bolts required?

Plus anything else I forgot!

Pictures would be nice.

All dross and drivel will be deleted! - Keep it optimum!

Also worth a read

And - Wheelspecs.com

And - Tyresave.co.uk

Try using forum search facility using "wheels" and "alloys" too!

Just put some of these on for a customer.

Didn't have the camera to take piccies though.

 8x18 ET 48

 245/45/18's

Tyre size is too big for van, customer is buying some smaller tyres for front in due course.

XL Conversion studs at front, 20mm spacers and radiused nuts.
Longer rear studs, 20mm spacers, radiused nuts.

Went onto pick up so can't tell about side door clearance.

Fronts were machined to 66mm, but they needed the 20mm spacers to clear top arm, you could get away with leaving the top part of the hole with a rim on so the centre cap would still fit, if you understand that? The customer had the centre machined to 66m all the way through, but as it happened he didn't need to, he could of got away with a partial bore and left the genuine centre caps in place. Niether of us were o know until it was tried.

Looks really cool, I'll get more details soon.
