Longer wheel bolts

Post by moremeba » Wed Mar 07, 2007 12:49 pm

All i am after a set of wheel bolts that will allow me to fit some alloy wheels to my BX.
I think the ones that are for the 16v wheels will be long enough.
Does anyone have a set or know where i can purchase from.

Thanks in advance

Well the 16v ones are flat topped, so if they're for an aftermarket wheel then they're not gonna be any good.

They are for a set of peugeot alloy wheels from a 1.9 gti.
Would the 16v bolts fit these? any ideas.

Cheers

ah, the pug bolts are shorter than Citroën bolts, so you'd probably have to find a set of bolts for a pug.

Thats right, you'll need 205/309GTi/405 Mi16 bolts. They're same as BX 16v ones, just shorter.
I have used BX bolts on Pug alloys before....its hit and miss whether the bolts foul on anything when fully tightened.
