Road wheels

Post by BSH » Tue Feb 23, 2021 12:37 pm

I need some wheels for my Laser 1.6,I believe the original ones where 6J x 13 with 185x70x13 tyres.
I am considering fitting 7J x 13 wheels with 185x60x13 tyres, anyone know if there would be a fowling issue with fitting these.

Probably not - depends on the offset.
If the same style RS4 wheels then no

Should be alright shouldnt it? 6cyl Capris have 205 60 13s on 7Js.

Does depend on the offset though.

For 7" an offset of about et5 would work fine (standard for pepperpots or 7 spokes), can get away with a few extra either side of that I'm sure
