I can't find my own fitment charts just now but Vauxhall rims such as Astra fit straight on.

four stud vw wheels should fit,and even new suzuki,look on ebay,people always scuff the front wheels and usually the rear ones are ok,so sets on ebay usually go cheap.

I've got 4 Stud BMW one's on mine!
Fit straight on without adapters or any mods.
Might be worth knowing if you want 14".

Regards

Mick

I have 13" team dynamics wheels on mine types are 175 50 r13....Not a common tyre size these days .......these are from a mini bits place so keeps rolling radius the same as a mini relaint. Due to the style of wheel the width is about 1.48m whens fitted to a relaint axle.

The wheels came off a mini origionally, but due to their shape would require 20mm spaces if fitted to a mini.

I have a spare pair if your intrested, they are a 5 twin spoke design with centre pieces, could send you a picture if your intrested.

Default Important Wheel Info

My Weller Wheels fitment guide from 1991 says that the PCD of Reliant Robins and Kittens was the same as mini, which is 4". BMW, '70s onward Vauxhall, VW and some Jap cars are 100mm. 4" = 102.4mm or thereabouts. Also, Reliant has a 3/8 inch wheel bolt and 2 1/2 inch centre bore. BMW, Vauxhall and VW has 12mm wheel bolts and 2 1/2 inch centre bore. VW Jetta has 2" centre bore for some odd reason. From an engineering viewpoint, these other wheels should NOT be fitted on the reliant axle. Possibly they only fit because 3/8 is smaller than 12mm leaving lots of room round the stud in the hole.

It is possible that later Reliants had a metric PCD, but I don't have info on Rialtos.

Minis, Metros, Hillman Imps, rear wheel drive Opels,Vauxhall Viva,Magum and Firenza, are all listed in my fitment guide as 4" PCD.

I'm very sure of this info, but don't be alarmed unless someone else can back up my info.

email me at microbson@hotmail.com if you need info in a hurry.

Default wheels

i found a set of four stud vauxhall wheels with tyres off a vauxhall in a skip, i think they were calibra sri rims, well the house with the skip outside had an sri calibra with new wheels on it in the drive, they fit straight on the reliant axle, and had 205 section low profile tyres on too, gearing as ok too
