    Default CX alfa romeo wheels bolts

    Hi just wondering what wheels bolts people have used to put the alfa romeo alloy wheels on a cx
    the steel wheel bolts from a cx have the wrong tapper and the tapper is also a bit short

    i dont have any alfa wheel bolts to try them so hoping someone can shed some light on this thanks

    Balki,

    The citroen studs require M12 x 1.25 (metric fine) threads. Thread length is 30 mm measured to the bottom of the cone. If the thread is too long the bolt will contact parts of the wheel hub carrier - so check that the wheel rotates normally when you fit the wheel. There is a pic of the wheel bolt in this thread Alfa Romeo Rims for a CX-2200?

    When I fitted Alfa wheels to my car a few years ago I couldn't find bolts in Australia at sensible prices. Local suppliers were telling me $20 EACH for bolts. So I got a set by eBay from a seller in the UK. Total was about $100 including postage for a complete set.

    Common M12 bolts here are metric coarse (1.5 mm pitch) but I can't believe that metric fine bolts should be that hard to get in Australia. Keep asking until you get the right answer.

    Would the bolts used with CX S1 factory alloy wheels do the job?

    Get on line and take a look at www.niceproducts.com.au They are an Australian crowd that make wheel bolts. They have a huge range of Metric fine bolts and nuts, flat washer, taper, cone and dowel - all sorts. Once you have found the bolt you want, your local parts retail (Autobarn etc.) can get them for you.

    I've just done a mix and match on my Pug, and found just the right thing in their catalogue.

    Good luck.
