Hi there, picked up some refurbed pentas, went to the local tyre garage to get them fitted only to be told they won’t fit. Originally the mechanic told me the 18s won’t replace my current 16 inch alloys, which I argued. He continued to show me how it won’t fit over the centre bore. Slight language barrier and didn’t leave me with much explanation other than “too big”. Help please?
Many thanks

Unless your car has 4 stud wheels the pentas will fit

They are just the alloys, needed tyres fitting so thought I’d kill two birds with one stone. Took it to a local and it was a straight fit!
Can’t even imagine what the other guy was doing, cheers anyway!

Fitted!
Turns out there was a thick layer of paint inside due to the refurb. First garage just happened to pick up that alloy up first!

They make a big difference! I’m torn between the pentas and vectra XP2 alloys
