Your thinking about buying some alloy wheels for you Colt, but you need to know some information first. Hopefully this will help you to get the right alloys for your Colt.
There are a few things you need to consider when looking at alloy wheels, these will normally be a series of numbers. But what do they mean? Hopefully this FAQ will help you along your way.
Centre bore, PCD, offset and size of the alloy wheel. Most of this information is stamped on the inside of the alloy wheel.
Centre Bore:
This is the size of the big hole in the middle of the wheel. The whole weight of the car and the associated driving stresses should pass through this bore on the end of the driveshaft.
-The C5 Colt has a centre bore of 67.1mm. (Unconfirmed)
PCD:
The PCD (Pitch Circle Diameter) is made up of two measurements. The higher amount is the measurement of the invisible diameter of the hub studs. The lower amount is the number of stud holes. If you don’t get the correct PCD then the holes in the alloy will not match the hub studs.
-The C5 Colt has a PCD of ‘114.3 x 4’. (Unconfirmed)
Offset:
This is the distance in mm between the centreline of the wheel rim, and the line through the fixing face. This means that this measurement can either be positive or negative. With the incorrect offset it could mean the wheels will be too near the suspension or bodywork and that can cause rubbing under load. This can be overcome to an extent by body shops rolling or flaring the arches, but it’s better if you don’t rely on this.
-For the C5 Colts Mitsubishi recommends an offset of 46mm positive offset. (Unconfirmed)
Alloy Wheel Size:
This is the number most used when discussing alloy wheels. Most people talk about wheels ranging from 13 inches to 22 inches. It is the measurement of the diameter of the alloy wheel.
-The C5 Colts can take alloys from 13 inches up to 17 inches. (Unconfirmed)
I highly recommend that no matter what alloys you are thinking of going for see if you can try them out first as it’s better to be safe than sorry. Also remember to consider suspension modifications, tyre walls and size of brakes if upgraded.
I hope this has been of some help :D
Joe

What size wheels as the ET will depend on the size of the wheel I beleve.

Well , I was after that manufacturers list as sometimes they don`t put all details on ebay. Would make searching for them easier. I read somewhere that apparently some older nissans and toyotas had 4x114.3 as well. I think rovers have 4x114.3 as well ( When I smashed my rim on 1st c5 apparently I had rover wheel as a temp one )

Just thought Mike had a list of different makes/models that us the same PCDs as well as similar ET.

rover wheels will only fit the cjo and cjo model of colt and not the c5 because iv tried

here is the list you want
Quote:
Size: 14x5.5
Bolt Pattern: 4x114.3mm
Offset: 46mm (1.8in)
Centerbore: 2.650

Other wheels that may fit the C5

Wheels from several different cars have the same bolt pattern as the C5. You just have to be careful of the bolt heads that protude on the front hubs. You may need wheels spacers to make these work.

Do not try to put 13" wheels on the car. At least 14" wheels are needed to clear the front brakes.

'92 to '96 Honda Prelude
'91 on Ford Capri
Infiniti G20(all years)

Also on a footnote, if you buy aftermarket wheel's "multi-fit" stud pattern will not fit stright onto a C5 as there are bolt heads on the outside of the disc, you will need to drill the back of the alloy to make multi-fit wheel's actually fit! lol

There are a few supplyers that do stright off the shelf fit aftermarket alloy's for c5's, just check that there are recesses on the rear of the alloy to accomadate the bolts on the outside of the disc, also take that into consideration when buying wheels from other cars, just save's messing around drilling. :thumbu

I got caught with this only 2 weeks ago with a set of buddyclub p1's. Instead of drilling the wheel tho i put on 9.5mm spacers and that done the trick and fills the arches out better too but if i went over 16" i'd say that they would catch on the arch.
