PCD 4x108 Offset 38 to 42 Bore 63.4


Thats for the fiesta

This is for the pug 206



PCD 4x108


OFFSET 18 to 38


BORE 65.1


The Bolt Holes for the pug are a bit thicker and the offset is wrong.

Hope this helps

Jamie

Hi

I think it has something to do with the fact that steel is harder than aluminium alloy.

The Steel Wheel nuts will crush the alloy or seriously damage it.

The alloy wheel nuts spread the load better and sometimes have washers on (cannot think of a way to describe that better)


If iam incorrect about the above for safety reasons please edit it out moderators.

The steal wheel nuts are completely the wrong shape and will damage the wheel as well as not hold the load correctly.
