All, Anyone know for sure if the wheel sizes fitted to a 2L TS and a 3L 24V around 99 were the same? My handbook shows 6.5J X 16 as standard for both and 7.5J X 17 as the optional wheel. I ask as I was looking at some new wheels which the shop say will only fir the 2L TS and not the 24V. Bit puzzled here as the book would indicate both models are the same. :confused: . Could there be a difference in the suspension setup/clearance between the two models? Cheers Andy.

Could possibly be something to do with the brake discs and calipers fitted as options. The space saver will not fit some applications.

Good thought, Any idea if the 24V has different calipers fitted?

I believe that they can, but really one for the 24v boys to answer.

TS discs are listed at 284mm diameter, V6 as 305mm. dia.

My calipers (mine's a TS) are different to those shown in the catalogue on a V6.

Cheers GTV4me, Now for a tricky question ....any idea how much extra diameter the 3L is compared to the TS from the center of the hub to the far side of the caliper. Now an answer to that would see you as top of the class!
