Hi,

I was wondering if any one would be able to tell me if the wheels from a 80 series would fit on my 60. At the moment I have standard wheels - 16" x 5.5" and they look to skinny. Need a solution to fill the rims.

Thanks,

Steve

No. Backspacing is significantly greater on the 80series, so the 80series rims are likely to hit steerig etc.

Are you sure?
Ive got a spare off my 60 series on my 80 series. Never tried it on the front though.

Gday Hairy,
The 60series will go fine on the 80series - you widen the track. I know a few people who do this deliberately.

But if you put 80series rims on a 60 series, you narrow the track, and are likely to have the tyres hitting steering or chassis.

60series split will fit both front and back on your 80series.

leave the narrows on better tyres more available more reliable.

A lot of people fit 235/85R16 to the split rims, so they get a wider tyre.
