Wheels, hubcaps, problems, problems...


Recommended Posts

Hey hey,

I have a k12 Micra and swapped to 15" X 6.5" Clio wheels (they fill out the arches better, there's more tyre sizes available, and they look grand). I want to finish them off with the 7" center hubcaps from K11 Micra steel wheels.

From what I can see, they just push onto the wheel bolts (and since the K11 and K12 have the same PCD it shouldn't be a problem), but after trying them on they don't seem to 'click' into place. They're loose and come off reallyreally easy.

Should I use K11 wheel bolts? Or is there a special kind of fitment bracket on K11 wheels that holds the hubcaps in place?

Thanks for your time,

Sith

Hi Sith

It does sound like the wheel nuts are different...that is the first thing I would check and if they are the same then revert to plan B (whatever that is)

Have you got a photo of the reverse side of the hub caps you can upload here?

Cheers,   Trevor

Hey Trever, thanks for replying!

Yeah, I think you're right...I just found out k11 wheel bolts are 19mm and it seems the k12 bolts are smaller.

The threads are different too:

K11 = M12 X 1.25

K12 = M12 X 1.5

...so o can't just whack in some K11 bolts instead. Baws! :angry:

No photos the noo, but I'll see what I can do tomorrow.

Thanks again :)
