Ive recently bought a aftermarket set of alloys that were supposedly fitted to an x but my mechanic has some problems.

I'm in need of a set of slightly bigger bolts. Below is the problems my mechanic is having fitting my wheels.


Firstly the standard bolts are too short by 10-20mm

Secondly the collar is too thin. He tells me the bolts go so far into the hole that the socket comes off the nut.

And lastly fiat's have different threads on the wheel bolts compared to other cars.

Is there anyone who help.

A dealership would have bolts for different accessory wheels, all you need to know is, how far bolt thread goes into hub. I had tipo bolts on my non standard wheels (Abarth) and they were 12mm longer than standard with a shallower shoulder.
Threads are common to a range of manufacturers, it’s the pcd that used to be different for fiat/lancia
Lots of GM cars are the same on four and five stud motors
