Alloy Wheel Bolts for BX GTi 8V

Post by benzbug » Fri Mar 09, 2018 12:55 pm

Does anybody have 16 x correct bolts for the genuine BX GTi alloy wheels that they would sell me?

Alternatively would any kind soul care to remove one of his own bolts and photograph it against a metric ruler so I can find some compatibles?

Any assistance will be much appreciated.

Cheers
Pete

Thanks for that Steve. I do have some non-Citroen bolts that will fit, and have worked out the correct length, but the heads have tapered shoulders. I am uncertain whether the shoulder should be tapered, dished or with a flat washer. It's not obvious from looking at the wheels.

Does anybody know or could supply a photo of one of theirs?

Cheers

The speedline alloys require flat washered bolts.
I have zero patience for your tedium.

I think you will find that Peugeot 206 hdi nimrod alloy wheel bolts will fit and there are a lot of wheels on eBay at the moment (scrappage deals?) so there should be bolts available too.

Thanks 4B4 and rd27.

Jaba that sounds good, I can wait until mid April (still on steel wheels currently). How much do you want for them?

Cheers
Pete

I think the going rate is about 30GBP.

OK Jaba that seems fair, so please consider them sold. Whereabouts in the country are you? I'm in Macclesfield.
I did borrow one from a Peugot 205 to try and it fitted OK but the threads didn't seem to go very far into the hub. Can I ask a favour that you whip one of them out and photograph it next to a metric scale so I can double check? Are they currently on a BX Gti 8V with Speedlines as per picture above?
Cheers
Pete

I am afraid that I am not anywhere near my bolts to photo them. In any case these are standard speedline bolts and WILL do the job for you.
I am in the south near to Oxford so we will have to rely on a delivery service to get them to you. I will be in touch when I am back in the country.
