Re: Dynamic Alloy Wheels [Bolts]

Do you have the new wheels? If so take a single bolt and one of your current wheels, measure the length of the shank (the threaded section on the bolt), then stick the bolt through a hole in the original wheels and measure the exposed length. Do the same with the new wheel and add the difference between the 2 exposed lengths to the shank length and that's what you need to order. Tbh I can't see it being any different, I fitted Dynamic alloys onto my partners GP Active which was rolling on steel and used the same bolts.

Re: Dynamic Alloy Wheels [Bolts]

I have an Active that came with 16" steels. I've fitted the 16" Fiat 20 spoke accessory alloys for the Bravo, and it uses the same bolts.

Think about it, if you have alloys and a steel spare, the same bolts must fit. You don't have a spare set of bolts for your spare.

have a look at your spare, you will notice the bolt holes are thick machined inserts

My spare is one of my original steels, so bolts are right, and the centre is just a pressing, not machined.

I have compared my length with another member ( oooh-err ) and its the same as on a car originally fitted with alloys.

that's cool

sounds like the bolt is long enough to satisfy steel and alloy wheels

Re: Dynamic Alloy Wheels [Bolts]

If the bolts from my steel wheels are long enough can these same bolts be used for alloy wheels ?

Re: Dynamic Alloy Wheels [Bolts]

my steel spare 16" also uses the same bolts as my 17" alloys.

Re: Dynamic Alloy Wheels [Bolts]

Maybe I've not explained myself too clear,
I've bought a set of Fiat Bravo Dynamic alloys to replace my steels

So I've only got the bolts that came with the Bravo some are saying that these bolts can be used for the new alloys and that the Fiat bolts are the very same bolts for steel or alloy Fiat wheels.

I don't wont to pay out for a new set of bolts only to discover they are the same, but also I don't wont to risk anything that involves fixing wheels as far as a safety issue.

I know plenty who do use the same bolts but what I would like is that it can be confirmed they are safe to use these Fiat bolts before I use them

Re: Dynamic Alloy Wheels [Bolts]

In terms of safety, they're perfectly fine, all I wanted you to check with my first post was that they were safe in terms of length in case they needed to be any longer (which - from what people have said - they're not).

It'll take you 5 minutes to do what I suggested in my first post
