Hello all,

I have a unforeseen problem...

After buying a cheap T-Spark to swap the spoiler and wheels over to my V6 I have hit a snag.

Although both GTV's of similar age, and both having 16" wheels, the 16" teledials from my T-Spark will not fit my V6 due to the considerably larger brakes on the V6. The bolts from my V6 are almost 1" longer and the old teardrop alloys are considerably thicker than the teledials.

I have seen many V6's with what appear to be the same wheels, can anyone explain where I have gone wrong?

Do i need to fit these with a spacer or have I just got the wrong wheels?

16" GTV v6 or 16" Spider v6 wheels will fit over the Brembos.
However 16" GTV/Spider TS wheels won't clear.

16" 156 wheels (which is what I suspect you have) won't clear either and use 23mm bolts as opposed to the 37mm bolts that GTV/Spider wheels use.
