    Default GTI6 wheels

    Hi all,

    does someone know if the GTI6 standard wheels will bolt onto my Mi16? Just wondering as I am about to purchase some and don't want to stuff it up due to the offets. I know the Mi has strange offsets but do they differ too much.

    cheers
    Dave

    they should look ok as they are both similar style wheels

    as far as the offset goes there was a site poseted up here somewhere that had all the car makes with the PCD's and offsets

    i'm sure who ever it was that posted the link will know where it is and post it back again or maybe a search might be the go

    Hi,

    thanks for the update. I spoke to someone at Regans in Melb. He said that the offsets are 19ml for the cyclone rims and 29mls for my 14" rims. would love to have a look at that thread though if someone knows of it.

    cheers

    Don't do it dude! The gti6 wheels don't have a centre hole and are a nightmare to get balanced. I'm sure there exists a cyclone lookalike or close enough wheel that are like normal wheels.

    Ok do get them if you know a place for sure that can balance them well, or if you love the wheels that much.
    Take the long way home....

    Most electronic wheel balancing machines have a spike which goes through the hole in the wheel to mount them. You can't use these machines without an adapter to balance the GTi6 wheels.

    Not that difficult really, and a lot of Bob Janes have the adapter (Drummoyne and Double Bay in Sydney at least).

    hI guys,

    The funny thing is all the wheel manufactures say you must balance the wheel using a stud patten balancer as they cannot guarantee the hole in the centre of the wheel is in the centre. There are a few stud patten balancers around just ring and ask.

    Cheers Nick

    My old GTi6 still has trouble with unbalanced wheels and has been to Drummoyne to get balanced. It improved it, but there's something skew-if on those rims. Can't do an on car balancing either, as I have an LSD.

    I'd recommend XSi or S16 rims more, they're perfect. Barely need any balancing at all.

    BTW, are you going to come to the BBQ tomorrow? If not, maybe come by to the meeting point at Cherrybrook Community Centre at 9AM. Would be nice to meet you, I know that's not far from your place

    I had my last wheel balance at BJ Double Bay, and I can vouch for how smooth and well balanced they are up to an indicated 225.......

    Thanks for the invite - I'm keen on one of these days but they always seem to be on when I'm committed elsewhere (so as to speak...). Sounds like a good excuse to take lots of pics for the Froggy photo album though!

    I'm still waiting for the Wakefield day that was talked about a while back!

    my wheels have a very slight shimmy at about 130 but that's it and you have to know it's there it is that slight

    drive through that and they are smooth again

    I've never heard of that before, but thanks, I'll ring around and see if there's any around in Adelaide.

    Rambo, mine is similar, but it's a bit more pronounced than yours, at around 130-140 there's a bit of shudder which disappears over or under that particular speed range.
    Take the long way home....
