Help! What Wheel Bolts Have I Been Sold?

Recommended Posts

welshpug

bought some nice shiny wheelbolts on ebay last week -

the thread and length of the bolt is perfect, but oddly is has a much larger shank as shown here -

PICT0271.jpg

 

thats 17mm BTW, forgot flash and shiny objects dont mix

 

this is a pug original bolt - PICT0272.jpg

 

as you can see is quite a lot smaller, just shy of 13mm in fact.

 

 

so what the hell have I been sold?

Well my guess would be :) They look tapered seat bolts for aftermarket wheels, but been made to imitate standard GTI bolts :o

anyone care to whip out a bolt from their 106 206 307 and measure the shank please?

 

I think they may be for later wheels seeing as the thread matches.

As Shown in the picture , these nuts have a 60 degree taper, meaning they are suitable for almost all aftermarket wheels. If you are using original alloy wheels then please check that the existing nuts on your car are also tapered and not flat before purchase.

nope!

 

they're the only pug/citroen bolts this bloke does, It has also been confirmed that they're for later pugs as the hole in the wheel is larger.

I agree, some newer Pug wheels (206 gti springs to mind) has these kind of bolts.
