I have a set of 15" Fiat alloys on my 2004 Ducato PVC, two alloys are a bit scabby, all five tyres are 205 70 15C and need replacing due to wear or age (spare is an original unused Michelin Agilis 81 and looks perfect)
I am looking at options which are narrowed down to:
Refurbish two alloys (£50 ea) and buy five 215 70 15 tyres at say £125 ea fitted so total cost £725
Buy a set of five steel wheels complete with 215 70 15 tyres ( probably Bridgestone Duravis) at total including cost of collection £460
Steels are from a 2006 onwards Ducato with spec given as:
6J x 15 ET68 and 5 x 118 PCD and 71.1 centre hole
Another supplier is offering steel wheels for 1998-2006 only as
6J x 15 ET68 and 5 x 118 PCD and 71.1 centre holes ???
Spot the difference ? Are they the same ? If so why do they specify a date range ?
Are the bolts the same for both ranges?
Will the bolts from my old alloys be OK to use with new steels?
Sorry for so many questions but I dont want to buy the wrong wheels or miss any significant cost here
All advice appreciated
