Re: new alloys for my cinqy, HELP!!

You managed to wreck 4 alloys on one pot hole?

If you're after cheap, replace what you have -- try eBay or a scrappy.

Or just try eBay: you want 13" 5.5J centre bore 58mm PCD 98mm ideally with ET30.5.

If you're after minilite alikes, someone has them: do a search for minilite here.

Re: new alloys for my cinqy, HELP!!

alright ill have a look around, well i havent damaged all 4, one got dented so thats not usable, and the other front one has a smaller dent form somewhere else not quite sure where) but that lets air out so i have to pull it up every 3 days.
Whats the deepest ones that will fit without having to angle grind anything away? and do 14" looks too big?

Re: new alloys for my cinqy, HELP!!

widest you'll get without work is 6", and that'll depend on offset etc

Mine are compomotive ml's 13x6, but pricey at ~£100 a wheel (then tyres, and the refurb i had done..

Re: new alloys for my cinqy, HELP!!

Little tip, if you ring suppliers or use websites, put that you have a punto rather than a cinq. Many places will say they have no wheels that fit a cinq but as long as you don't get massive wheels or wheels wider than 6" you'll be able to fit them with little bother.

Cheers

Re: new alloys for my cinqy, HELP!!

lol i had that with tweeks about my compomotive wheels, wouldnt make them for cinq so told them to make them up for punto and i'd sort it out later, then seems like they had a try at making them for a cinq due to the 24 offset

Re: new alloys for my cinqy, HELP!!

this is a Portuguese site but it can give you an idea for your cinquecento. you mark fiat and then the model, cinquecento and you can see some wheels , just to see if hey look good on your car. And then... you look around in UK for them
