Good alloys for winter?


Recommended Posts

Hey Charlie,

 

How are you doing ?

Some time now, no speak.

 

I got my beauty back from conversion a few days ago, starting to fit her out now.

 

Alloy wheels in winter, and you do a ton of miles.

You were going to buy some summer alloys.

Presumably because you want to preserve your summer wheels, and avoid them getting 'salted'; maybe winter tyres too; hence looking at these.

 

You need to check offsets. The wheels aren't even Toyota.

Your original wheels will use flatheaded wheel nuts, what are the Hondas? Are they conical ?

Is the stud pattern the same? PCD.

Are the stud thread sizes the same? 

 

By very careful Charlie.

 

If I were you I would buy some second hand Alphard wheels and tyres. That way all your geometry etc, should remain the same.

The only thing between you and an accident are your wheels and tyres !

 

Good Luck, and be patient

 

2003 Honda CRV do have the same PCD and bolt size.

Yeah, most hondas have similar bolt sizes and PCDs... AND bolt patterns 

My mate has a 05 CRV and the offset is almost identical. Sent them an email on eBay.. Got some summer wheels (work eurolines!!! exactly what i wanted) just thought these were pretty cheap and might work with my mini if they don't work with the Alphard. Would need some new tyres though. 

 

Thanks for the advice

Charlie

 

PS: I'm doing great! getting apple car play fitted well for the van for Christmas! (Very excited) 

Hope your loving your conversion, been a while in the making huh? 

How are you? i assume quite happy haha

My conversion did take a while.

 

I ordered special maple veneer panels on a four week leadtime. Somebody screwed up the order, so I had to wait another 4 weeks.

I am VERY pleased with it, although it stinks of the UV wood protection.

Have just ordered the upholstery for it which should be ready just before Christmas.

Need to sort bedding, storage and dog hammock, then all the bits and pieces we will need on a trip.

 

Good luck with the wheels. I sense how important they are to you.

I am fitting locking wheel nuts to mine next week.
