    Default 5 Spoke steelies

    Long shot but I recall someone a long while ago running the modern Vx 5 spoke steel rims on their Nova... these ones:



    I'm pretty sure I responded to that original thread those many years ago, but can't seem to find which thread it was.

    I know they're not offset friendly, ET39 if I recall correctly, but I want to remind myself how they look fitted.

    Cheers

    So not the actual image I saw/was after, however, I found someone who fitted 4 stud versions of these steel rims



    Question is, anyone know what model these 4 stud steel rims came off? Never knew there was a 4 stud version as I've only ever seen them in 5 stud, and having looked through various model parts catalogues, I can't seem to find this version.

    They look like mini one wheels alloy's to me but could be wrong. EDIT: Just notice the pic you posted has an inverted spoke like the steelies where the mini's have outward... me bad

    The 5 stud steelies came on Astra H and Zafiras.

    They are called structure wheels. Not sure if they are off a pov spec new corsa or new viva.

    Cheers Southie,

    I think the 4 stud Renault route may be the way to go, and that link to a manufacturer in Turkey is useful, got a couple friends over there, could probably pick them up for a good price.

    Torquey, thanks for technical name for them. They're normally fitted behind plastic trims for that cheap alloy wheel look on the Astra H's and the like.

    I've actually got a set of 4 in the garage but in 5 stud (as pictured), which I was considering for the Nova but having now seen it in 4 stud I need to look into it.
