Mk3 16" alloy wheels on Mk1
« on: January 04, 2019, 01:32:26 AM »
Has anyone else tried to do this?  I bought these wheels  and just tried to fit them. The rear wheels fit ok but the front wheels are touching the brake calliper slide. I know the offset is identical.

I will try 5mm wheel spacers but I'm concerned that the wheel nuts will have 5mm less thread to hold onto

The offset ( ET ) is just the dimension from the hub flange mounting face to the centre of the rim - it says nothing about  the shape of the spokes etc and the way they are attached to the rim.  Where did you get the wheels from,  did they claim these wheels were suitable for a Jazz  ?   

Which model MK1 of Jazz was fitted with 16" wheels, I thought OEM were generally 14" and never went larger than 15"

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Like I said, the wheels are from a mk3 Jazz. The question was for anyone else who tried this already lol.

 I canít find anything online for this case. It could be useful for anyone else considering buying late model OEM rims for their mk1. Iíll post pics if I am successful.

I am running 16'' wheels off a SI jazz on my 2006 sport and I used 3mm front spacers .

It does make the speedo run spot on to the sat nav only reading 1mph slower at 70 mph.
