Original Alloy wheel difference questions
Feb 03 2011
On refurbishing my alloy wheels I realised one set are different to the other set. They have a line coming from front to back on the inside of the wheel for each spoke, aprox 3mm high 10cm long into the middle of the inside of the wheel, its raised and is part of the original casting. The other set don’t have this in that they are flat all the way round the inside. Given that I’m quick finding out most things on this car function as well as look the part I suspect it’s a weight/balancing thing possibly for front to back side to side. The wheels differ only in one other way and that is that a small set of boxes (type set into the wheel centre front) with dots in them don’t share the same number at the end of these sets of boxes. On one set is typed 92 the other 93. Now given that that tells me a difference is present....
Does anyone have any ideas what the difference might be, and since the wheels have been moved before are they to be paired front and back or one side to the other side? What I mean is balance front or back balance left or right? Balance at all?
