Can somebody help please? I am changing from 16 inch teardrop wheels to 17 inch teledial wheels.

Do I need longer / shorter wheel bolts or are they the same?

Do I need different size centre caps?

Do I need spacers or do they fit straight on as they are designed for the GTV?

Thanks

Thanks EauRouge that has put my mind at rest. I couldn't check myself as they are away being refurbished.

No worries Oliver, the only thing you will need to buy are the 60mm badges as the 16" Wheels have 55mm badges.

If you want to be absolutely certain and for peace of mind - stick a wheel bolt through a mounting hole of each wheel and measure on each how much thread sticks out on the hub side.

As to spacers, that depends on the original fitment. The offset should be engraved/cast into the wheel. If the teledial says '35' you'll ideally need a thin ( 4-5mm ) spacer ( available from Alfa for about £15 per corner ). The GTV/Spider offset is 30.5mm.

Just to be 100% sure would somebody with 17 inch teledials be able to measure the length of the wheel bolts in their lockable wheel bolt set and ill measure mine.
