    Clio MK4 Passion alloys on 172?

    Has any body attempted this? I'm interested in doing this alloy swap, but as I don't really understand ET measurement I'm unsure if.. 1. It's possible at all.. 2. Possible but wheels will be tucked in or protruding the wheel arch. I'm not Interested in performance, these alloys aren't that...

    Clio wheel help?!?!

    I got a set of seat arosa wheels dirt cheap, they’ve got loads of tread and hold air (the current wheels on my Clio suffer from both of these). They’re 4x100 but don’t seem to fit at all, is this the case? Or do I need new bolts to fit these wheels?

    Wheel studs - how much thread is needed?

    Long story... but I've picked up some secondhand alloys for the missus' car from another car from the same manufacturer. PCD, Centre Bore, Offset are all identical. BUT... Upon trial fitment, the nuts seem to have less thread to screw on to - it is like the replacement alloys are 'fatter' in...

    6j x 15 tyre choices?

    Hi guys, gonna need some new tyres in a bit, what size should I go for on the standard 15" alium alloys? As far as I know they come standard with 185/55r15 but i've heard some use 190 or 195 sections and anywhere from 45 to 55 walls. Which is best fitting and performance wise?

    Just bought these for my track car stamped oz. They are 16 inch and look just like the ph1 oz f1 15inch that come on them. Bought these for 70 quid today and fitted my Clio prefect. Did they make oz f1s in 16 inch for the Clio sports. Or are these different

    Thoughts on these alloys...

    Remembered I've got these alloys in the garage, so decided I'd photoshop them onto a 182 to see what it looked like : Slight issue is that I'll need spacers as they haven't got much offset (ET49 I think), and also the bore will need enlarging slightly - But I suppose I guess it a way to have...

    182 alloys and tyres

    Somehow I have managed to damage one of my front driver side alloys. So I need to replace them. I'm looking to replacement with a darker variation of the 182 alloys. As I'll be mostly likely getting them without the tyres, what's the best size tyres to get with the alloys that are compatible...

    Dynamique 15" alloys for track

    I picked up a set of dynamique alloys cheap and am hoping they'll be ok for track. I measured them across and they appear to be 7" from edge to edge, so I'm guessing they're a 6.5j?
