GT Turbo Coupe wheels on a GTL
« on: 22:49, Mon 14 February 2011 »
I'm interested in fitting the steel wheels from the GT Turbo Coupe on my GTL. So far I gathered that the wheels are 5.5 x 13 with an ET of 16mm. I've seen them with tyres ranging from 175/60 13 to 195/55 13.

Now before I set out on a mission to find some, I need to know first if they will fit my car.

Yes they will fit if you can find a set :D  and if you do find a set they are not cheap.

Thanks. I was a bit concerned that the extra width of the rim combined with the offset might be a bit too wide for my car as it doesn't have the wheelarch flares of the Turbo and that it might rub on the arches when turning.

are you sure on the et of 16?  Should be around 36.

Yeah quite positive. Odd I know as the standard offset is 35mm, but different sources state the same specifications for the cup wheels.

The spare wheel on a 5 is ET35, the cup car ran same ateel spare wheels but at a different ET which was ET16. Thi pushed the wheel further out in the arch. The wheel was still 5.5x13" though
