Cool Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Hi

new in here , I've a doblo 1.3 family multijet, silver, bought brand new from Jam Jar for 8500(on the road with 12months tax) in feb 05 , beat that one !!

Well i've bought and fitted the great " 3 silver alu roof rails" , cost 164.00 but worth it. Plus 34.00 for the mud flaps !!

Now i'm after some alloys The fiat doblo standard ones are boring, anyone put 15, even 16 inch ones on thier doblo ?

Has anyone put on alloys off other fiats.

I've done some research , but actual installation experince may prevent the wrong purchase !!!

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Well only bought the standard 14 inch FIAT alloys brand new off ebay paid 140 for them . The alloys for a punto will exactly fit the doblo , so what fits to a punto should be OK , there are loads of different styles . If any problems I seen lots of companies who supply spacers....

I'll take a pic of my cargo with 15's on 195/55/15. She looks sweet. No spacers needed with the style that ive got.

Cool Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

You can fit 17" on a Doblo with spacers, see the last post on This Thread.

HOWEVER! Be warned, I have been put off putting bigger alloys on my Doblo because a few people I have spoken to have had suspension problems after fitting and using alloy wheels, plus you really wont get much wear out of your tyres, they'll need replacing at least three times a year depending on mileage. 15" probably isn't too bad, but 17" and maybe even 16" could cause you problems. Although don't be put off just by what I said, do your own research if you so wish. If you like them though, go for them, I think the doblo looks sweet with them, and as I said check out the post above, theres a pic too!

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

The steel wheels on my 2002 Doblo are very rusty and I am tempted to get some alloy ones but I suppose it makes it a modified vehicle and the insurance goes through the roof. I did enquire about getting my wheels shot blasted and powder coated but that is 40 per wheel plus the cost of getting the tyres removed, refitted and balanced. Mine only has centre hub caps rather than full wheel trims so perhaps wheel trims from the Punto would fit and not be an obvious deviation from original trim.

Hello , I don't think that if you replaced your rusty wheels with standard FIAT alloys 14 inch, transfer the tyres if OK then there would be NO difference to the insurance, the standard alloys 14 inch off a punto mk2/3 fit direct (same pcd offset etc) on to the dobo . They are cheap and easily available on ebay , here etc... heck mine only cost 160.00 plus 35.00 to transfer the tyres, I took the NEW steel ones to the Tip.. heck you could have had them for nothing !!

The cost of a good set of s/h alloys compared with steel refurb , theres no contest ?

Have a look around I'm sure you'll find some ... Having alloys would be a cheap option , it would also make your car/van worth a bit more !!

Cool Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Yeah, that combination should fit, but you may need wheel spacers, if you do don't go too big as you'll put extra pressures on the suspension and could cause yourself problems. I'd be quite intrested in putting some alloys on in the furute so post us all some pics and tell us how you get on!

Talking Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Ok

They are now fiitted didn't need spacers.. .. photos "attached" , you also might notice the wind deflectors which i purchased via the web from germany.... just an A bar to be fitted before summer.. then its finished...

tech data : wheel 17 inch, 205/40 17 tyres offset ET35 PCD 98.

As an after thought the tyres could have been 205/50-55's but I'll do that at the next tyre change.

The cost inc locking wheel nuts / chrome valves / delivery = £389.00 Beat that one..
