Cool Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Really nice mate, well impressed! Let us know how you get on with tyre wear and such, but I must say seeing those has made me change my mind about alloys for the doblo, though I'd probably go a size smaller to try and give me some more rubber to play with.

Hope they work well for you and thanks for the pics

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Are these the type of wheels that would have been an option on a new Doblo?

It would mean a trip down to England to collect them but there are some other things I need to get anyway.

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Ah, should have twigged from the seller ID. I was going through all the Doblo stuff, towbars, locking fuel caps, parcel shelves etc as I can feel a shopping trip to England coming on. There's a motorbike gearbox I need to collect in Yorkshire when I get chance.....

Cool Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Hey there! Hope the wheels are going well for you, I was just wondering, have you told your insurance company? If so what did they say and did they charge you any extra? I'm gathering your quite young so it would be intresting to know Cheers

The insurance company "direct line" have charged me an extra £30.00 for the change to the alloys....

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

OOH dear.....

My 4 month old 17 inch tyres have started to split on one side wall , on one side ONLY, at the same radius on ALL 4 tyres... >>> must be a manufacturing fault, have reported this to dealer who sold me the alloy package...

Sent pictures etc.. awaiting a reply... , I've not abused the dobbin in anyway... only really use it for going on holiday to cornwall / overseas, not towing ...

Awaiting a response... have had to source new tyres as matter of urgency ,,, going on Holiday on Monday... The replacement tyres are Marshall 205/45 17's Hope these will last...

Hopefully rec. a

Am a bit worried this problem may have affected other tyres manufactured in the same batch... If no progress from dealer + supplier, then will have to raise with trading standards , H+S Agency

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

That is really bad. Try and get some tyres that are reinforced if you can, when I had mine changed recently the guy said that without the reinforced tyres, the tyres squab too much going round corners and this causes excessive wear and sidewall problems... And that's on 14's! Could possibly be linked as you have pretty much zero sidewall on those low profile tyres

hi, to side track a bit.

doblo on 17 inch alloys, are spacer required ?

i'm currenty on 15 inch alloys - got it off some fiat punto, tyre size 195/55
on full turn , the inside of the wheel doesn't seems to have much space left for a wider tyres

planning to upgrade to 17 in the near future

Yeap they are 17 inch , The tyres , which I have problem with !!! are 205/40's , These have been replaced by 205/45's (can't go any bigger than that, they won't fit..) , no spacers required , I've about 1.5 cm gap from the front suspension strut and about the same may be a bit more on the rear strut

It's all to do with the offset on the alloys, The punto's I think are ET38 ? mine I think are ET35 or is it the other way around ????

The alloys are DJ alloys , and were "designed to fit a doblo" ????? believe it or not

Holds the road very well, it's like driving a steam roller....
