Fitting alloys

Post by Cruz »

Merc Penta 5 spoke alloys from a Merc 190

How easy are they to fit to a T25?

I assume I would need longer studs and bolts but would I need to do owt else?

cheers

Aside from actually fitting the wheels, you need to think of the circumferance of the tyres as if they're too big you're speedo will be out. you can probably fit new tyres but obviously this also adds to cost of fitting....
Hoping to get my Merc ML's fitted sometime in the new year after saving for the new tyres and bolts and stuff :D

So if I was to take off the 14" original steels to put on some 15" alloys I would need low profile tyres?

the thing is your 14 steels probably had big tyres on so just mesure the diamiter of the overall size, merc wheels may already have slightly smaller tyres on, also im pretty sure those particlar alloys may fit straight on, but dont quote me
