New member, really need 17” wheel help!!

Post by flyty81 » 10/09/18 14:48

Hi Guys,

Recently purchased a MR2 MK3 pre face life model and the OEM wheels are a right state.

Just purchased these from eBay that came off of a GT86.......

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2872587407


firstly, will they fit? And secondly, what would be the recommended tyre size?
I know there are many posts about sizing, but tbh it all really confuses me, as I am new to this.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi there,

My first question is regarding the number of wheels you have bought. That advert appears to be selling a pair rather than all 4.

The offset I believe will be +45 but your bigger problem is that the wheels are 5x100 bolt pattern whereas the MR2 Roadster (MK3) is 4x100

So, unfortunately these won't fit on your car :no:

Thanks for your help guys, I have contacted the seller who has cancelled the order!

You just saved me £150.

Looks like I’ll be getting the originals refurbished after all!!!

Get them powder coated, it's well worth it IMO this was mine about 8 years ago and they still look pretty much the same
