Hi guys, The missus recently bought a zr which had some nasty 17 inch alloys on it which were in a right state. I bought some 16 inch hairpins but I cant get the back wheels on. They wont slide over the centre on the brake drum moulding and doesn’t fit flush against it. The hole in the centre of my alloys are too small. Hope you know what I mean. My zr is a 03 model. Can anyone please help me with my problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanx Chris.

spigot rings will still be stuck to the spigots on the hubs, just pry them off with a screwdriver and lightly tap with a hammer and they will come off.

Well they would fit any rover 200/25/ZR as they all use 4x100 PCD so thats not the problem.

I can't see why they won't fit tbh

when southside mentioned a spiggot ring he meant on the drum not the old alloy and sometimes they stick and come away from the alloy, thats the only possible reason i can think why it would not fit
