mini light alloys?
« on: October 24, 2005, 08:40:52 PM »
Does anyone know if original mini light alloys will fit a late (1989) aircooled? There are a set on ebay for about 80 quid - worth a look?
you can do it in a 126 (I have!)

mini wheels dont have the same pitch as Fiat (distance between holes). Fiat wheels are a 98mm pitch. You would need some Fiat alloys or some especially machined for Fiats. X1/9 alloys look good on 126s.
1987 Fiat 126 FSM, alloys, clear lights, Polish tat accessories... love it!

If you want to use mini wheels you can use a set of offset (bendy) bolts, though they are not particually cheap and the cost of the wheels and bolts combined could add up to the price of a proper set of Fiat wheels – also I think the Nissan Micra has the same PCD as Fiat, can anybody else confirm this?
