The winter 2005 issue of Moss' British Motoring article on Tire and Wheel plus
sizing got me to thinking of bumping up to 16" rims on my TR6.
What is the correct way to measure bolt patterns on wheels? The article gives
plenty of info on offset, etc, but doesn't address the bolt pattern issue. I
measure ~3.25" from holt to hole and 4.5" diagonally. Is this a 108mm x 4
pattern? Does anyone supply a 16" minilite replica?
You see where I'm going with this. The recommended plus size tire is
205/60-16, and I'm thinking Ford Focus rims may be the same bolt pattern. If
I could get the correct offset, then voilet!
I would have ROUND wheels (as opposed to my original steel ovals) and low
profile tires of the correct height.
BTW, has anyone else found a 16" rim that works well on the TR6?
And what about tire brands? Anyone have experience with Kumho?
