Question Space Saver Wheels

I currently have 13" steel wheels, but wish to get 14" alloys fitted to my punto 60S, does this mean I will have to get a 14" space saver wheel or can I use the current 13"space saver wheel? also I have been told that I can use the current wheel bolts with the alloys is this correct?

Re: Space Saver Wheels

You can carry on using your existing 13" space saver wheel

The tyres you get with your 14s (185/55s probably) will mean that the rolling radius of the wheel stays the same as your 13s.

As the diameter of the wheel increases, the profile of the tyre will decrease.

You may be able to use your existing wheel bolts, it depends how much thread comes out of the back of the alloy, about 5/8 to 3/4 of an inch is fine. Any less and you will need new bolts.

If your getting new alloys, new alloy bolts would complete the transformation though.

Hope this helps.

Re: Space Saver Wheels

if you change the rolling diameter then yes.

If the alloys take up a lot more thread then you need new studs aswell.
