Red face Fiat ffb 680 wheels

Hi, I have just purchased a 1998 lhd fiat ffb 680 and being a completely newbie need some help. I have no idea how to find out what kind of chassis I have, Iím trying to get hold of a spare wheel and tyre and itís proving difficult for me as I know very little about the base vehicle I have. I believe it is a Fiat Ducato chassis but know they made different types, where do I find this information? The wheels are fiat alloys marked either mj or cw on the wheel nut cover, the tyres are 25/75 r16c , how do I find the correct details in order to be able to buy a replacement spare steel wheel online? How do I know what width the wheel is? Any help gratefully received ,if it helps the reg is S167FVE.

Your tyre size seems to have a digit missing, it should be 2x5 not 25.

Also be aware that very often the wheel nuts used with alloys are different to those used with steel rims. You may also need to buy a full set of wheel nuts and possibly a different wheel brace.

Can you measure the PCD of the existing rim (the diameter of the circle that all of the wheel nuts are on). Typically it will be around 125mm. Also how many wheel nuts are there

Hi, there are 5 wheel nuts, the distance between the centre of two adjoining nuts/studs is approx 78mm, the centre whole is 60mm wide. The wheels are mj or cw depends how you read it. The tyres are 215/75/r16c . Really struggling to find anything that fits! Lou

I'd suggest that given the year and the 16" size of the wheel you have a "maxi" chassis Ducato and any 16" rim from a series 2 van will suit.

Also take note of kabundi's mention ref the wheel fixings, for the older vans the steel wheel bolts are different from the alloy ones.

Lovely van you have there, the ffb was a quality motorhome in its day, still stands the test of time.

This link may help

You should be able to check your existing dimensions against the chart and thus confirm the spec of your existing wheels
