Hi,

Could anyone help with the size info for replacement rims i.e pcd, width etc as looking to buy a non nissan set for my 2012 dci 1.5 ntec (im pretty sure its a facelift model but not sure how to check this)

When I took it for a new tyre the mechanic told me the holes are warped on the inside of the rim and to replace it asap.

Thanks
Danielle :D

Welcome to this forum.

The facelift is pretty easy to tell - different front and back - and a 2012 should be facelift.

Remember aftermarket alloys could bump up your insurance.

How would the holes on the inside be warped. Was you experiencing vibration or wheel nuts coming loose. Seems a very strange one, I would get a second opinion from someone else.

He did show it me and also the nuts are not in great condition. I only just bought the car a few weeks ago. Tbh I havent noticed vibration but he said replace it asap as it doesnt look good.

That happens when it has been used constantly and not tight enough. It is going bad, elongated holes.

We had a vaguely similar issue with our previous 2007 QQ, for years had new tyres fitted at a well known UK country wide tyre fitter, then after an MOT was carried out in 2019 we were informed that three alloy wheels were of serious concern.
It appears that the aluminium alloy on several of the bolt holes had become so thin that the MOT tester could just about get his socket to seat correctly to enable him to fully tighten the bolts.
He put this down to incorrect/over tightening of the wheel bolts, along with age related corrosion.
Luckily managed to source a NOS unused set of alloy wheels from a Nissan dealer and purchased them, had the tyres swapped over and put on the car.
I was shown the old wheels and definitely there was a significant amount of difference in several of the bolt holes, tbh they hadn't egged out like in the OP's photo's but sure weren't safe to drive on.
I admit that I'm not a Metallurgist or an Engineer but I do trust my local Garage and the time served Mechanics/owner.
The wheels were over 12 years old, in relatively good condition (paint wise)
Should Alloy wheels have this issue? Or is it just a bad batch of Aluminium that was used, along with the incorrect tightening?

Thank you everyone. I got a 2nd hand rim rather than replacing all 4 and all sorted now :)
