Thats the problem with old wheels info is hard to get for them... The S7-3 is the modern day S7 im guessing Lenso wouldnt change the ET for every variation of the wheel Do you think the idea with the spacers would work
ahh i see...yeah id imagine they wouldnt change the offset as i said before most of the wheels that were 17 were ET35 on 4 stud..so id imagine they are ET35. i dont know on the spacers theyre cheap enough anyway...so its worth a try..if they dont do much then you can always get your money back..in theory on full lock with those spacers it could clear it..but like i said im not so sure on it
Bump bump bumpitty bump After too many attempts looking on the interweb I took the wheels off and after a good scrubbing I found what I was looking for Lenso S7s 7j R17 98108 PCD (multifit ) ET 40 What spacers to use
seriously lock stoppers are the only -propper- way forward to space the wheels out enough you may need your arches sorted for a mot (tyre sticking out). you do realise though that spacers wont really work that well to reduce rub on full lock. say 20mm spacers wont move it 20mm out on full lock. it will move it 5mm out and 15mm towards the front bumper. as the hub will be under the steering it wont work as well. mega spacers would be needed.... that said depends how much it rubs
never looked into them before but i think ive seen some fitted and secured using cable ties in the mid spring area it was a while ago though so not sure
that depends on the offset of the alloys do they say ETXX anywhere (XX would be a number)
wheel spacer kit like from eibach which extends the spigot and comes with its own mounting bolts and then the wheel is mounted to these and it extends adds extra work when replacing brakes as these have to be removed aswell. i hope thats understandable i am greatful for all your input and all your other ideas are spot on and now on my list lol hope to start work on the car next month once the brava

It is easier
im guessing they are not original fiat alloys. bravas and Puntos all use the same PCD and centre bore - in fact I think all fiats do.. what differs is the offset. They will physically fit on the hub - but might need spacers to get the tyre aligned correctly.
you can fit honda wheels just not Honda original wheels the stud pattern is slightly different on Hondas but you can get longer bolts and washers with off-centre holes. you cant use Honda original wheels as the holes for the bolts on these are very small and wont allow for smaller stud patterns. Aftermarket wheels usually wont have this problem. the offset on a bravoa is 35mm (i think) the Civic is 40mm or 43mm depending on model. you should probably get spacers as well Met Cognac 99 brava 100 HSX wish itd clean itself
those offset washers are the best option if you dont use them your bolts may come loose and youll stress the hubs. so there youll need new bolts if youre using spacers anyway. if you dont use spacers you may affect the cars handling Met Cognac 99 brava 100 HSX wish itd clean itself
Hi The PCD of your vauxhall is probably 4x100 where as fiat is 4x98 if this is the case you can use wobbly bolts to fit your alloys. If the centre bore on the alloys is not 58.1mm you will also need spigot rings. You may need spacers if the offset is very different though spigot rings server as spacers aswell. Wobbly bolts have a moving collar addapting for the difference in PCD

10mm exhaust spacer. all i am saying is that going from a 1.2 16v to a 1.4 16v is just the same (only you dont need a spacer if you take the 1.4s exhaust). there are no more technical issues for Joe Bloggs to sort out no sensors will be disconnected or fooled. Quote The Brav 1.6 produces the same BHP as a StiloPanda 1.4 16V. Oh and its a straight fit no messy mods no transplanted parts off other fiats

httpwww.fiatforum.commiscellaneous-guides50703-working-out-offset-wheels.html edit in other words its how much of the wheel will be at the back if its too much you will need spacers and may be longer bolts
Thanks Dave However my wheels are currently on (well no theyre actually off) the car at the bodyshop along with the manual which presumably tells me what offset suits the car EDIT - thanks also Chris Where does the spacer sit and what exactly does it do Are they costly and hard to find (like wobbly bolts were) The bolts I have on at present are of a standard length because the wheels I have on fitted
To get the Vaux wheels on the spacers new spigot rings and longer wobble bolts and locking nuts will push the price up a fair bit. Over &163100 even. The spigot rings centre the wheel on the hub (vauxhalls and fiats are different)
Using a spacer you can install 165mm or 130mm drivers in your door. Makes more sense than replacing paper nokias with another set of oval speakers. All you need is either buy or make a spacer for the speaker. 165 mm spacer made of MDF 130mm spacer (UK store)
If the et42 wheels do come into contact with anything suspension etc. then you could always get some 5mm spacers. This would then be the same as et37. But you may be able to get away with out the need for them. Some people frown upon using wobbly bolts and spacers but as long as the spacers were hubcentric (ie centres themselves exactly on the hub) then they would be fine. I use wobbly bolts with my alloys and ive never had any problems
16x7.5 19545x16 37 5mm spacer requied and wobbly bolts needed as they have said above but in my opinion im not a great fan of wobbly bolts with spacers but as chrisunoman has said as long as they sit center then they should be fine its alot better then trying to put 4x100 e38 vauxhall wheels on a saxo they need 20mm spacers lol
I have tyres the same size as Wimmys on mine. Third party alloys dont often come in a fiat fitment but if its close enough can be made to fit with different bolts spacers and are often cheaper and better looking than fiat options.
how do the foglights attach to the bumper they dont have the inserts like the standard bumper. also does the bumper come with mesh or what im guessing you arent just left with a big hole ijncluded in the one i got bumper spacers big black washers screws black mesh leaflets the fog lights are held in by mouldings in the bumper ill get some pics Attached Thumbnails     __________________ fiat
If youve got ET35 fitted at the moment go for ET35 if you can only find ET38 fit 3mm spacers - ET40 fit 5mm spacers. Remember as well if using spacers youll need longer bolts to accomodate the extra depth. Dont know why I thought those 500 wheels were 16s Ade must be having a senior moment lol.

put 2054017 on my bravo and it rubs on full lock its not even lowered so invest in some spacers
205s shouldnt rub unless you have wrong offset wheels. are they 100pcd wheels with wobbly bolts by any chance spacers will effectively adjust the offset for you but make sure you also use decent bolts of the right length there should be at least 6 turns of bolt thread 6 or less and you need longer bolts to be safe.

With discs they are much narrow than a drum therefore the Hub needs to be brought in abit therefore you need the 5mm hub
ET35 means you shouldnt need spacers because 7x17s fit without spacers with that offset. personally im not sure theyd suit a bravo but its hard to say.
Just checked the stilo wheel query and 3mm spacers will be needed. They might fit without them though. They are easy enough to get mind you could go round a few scrap yards as cinq sportings used 3mm spacers on the fronts as standard.
