    Default GTi-6 wheel bolt length

    Hi People

    I was trying on a set of cyclones on my 180 today and it felt like the wheel bolts were short. On the 180 the wheel bolts take ages to unscrew where as on the cyclone wheels the 180 wheel bolts needed only about half the amount of turns to tighten.

    Does anyone here know if there is a difference in wheel bolt lengths between a GTI-6 and that of a 180?

    I had the same problem when I put the cyclones on my old Mi16. bolts were too short. I ended up using the Mi16 std bolts as they worked perfectly. Give the 180 bolts a go (if they fit), hopefully they will be ong enough. You may have to get some made otherwise, should cost more than $150.

    I'm just not keen on using the 180 bolts because I don't think that they go in long enough. However dave, you raised an intersting point. Does any one hear know whether gti-6 or mi-16 wheel bolts have the samre thread pitch and diameter so that they could be used on a 206 gti 180?

    I think the bolt dimensions as 12 x 1.25 mm, can anyone also confirm that this is the same case for both gti-6 and gti 180 wheel bolts.
