Will 15" Alloys off a Mk2 Clio fit on the Mk2 Clio Alize ? At the moment we have Standard 14" Steelies which are missing wheel trims.


Thanks

A couple of tips for you; (well, three actually):rolleyes:
  • invest in a set of locking wheel nuts/bolts
  • get a set of alloy wheel nuts/bolts (preferably from whom you are getting the wheels from) as this will prevent advanced corrosion setting in which can seize them in place
  • apply a bit of grease to the wheel hub & the threads of the nuts/bolts before fitting (makes it a bit easier the next time you remove them)
Remember to fit tyres with the same (or very close to) rolling circumference as those you are removing - otherwise your speedo and gearing will be affected.

My tyre size is 185/55/15 and i have used no spacers at all.

No srubbing on full lock or catching anywhere. Standard suspension atm. I'll let you know how it fits after lowering it 40mm.

Blimey they fetch a fair old Price on EBay !

I got some 16" Focus Alloys with 3 new Tyres and 1 not so good one for half the price of the genuine Clio ones are going for.

Looks just as cheap to go buy some aftermarket Alloys and Tyres - Anyone know best place to get 15" Alloys from ??

There is a set of Clio alloys for sale int he "for sale" Section of this forum, a bit of curbing but for £70 cant complain.

As for the alloys wheels, Use google and have a good look around.

I'll dig some out tomorrow and post back.

Another Set just went for £285 on E Bay !

There are a fair few for £300 inc Tyres from Motorworld but there a a few Tyre places by me which sell them so may as well have a look
