Read ROH 16X8 no wait 17x8

ok so my Milano's ... the inner sticker has the measurement at 16x8 i was like hmm but the measurement match up at 46cm to be 17inches, so i was wondering if anybody else had a sticker issue and maybe its just ROH being lazy ... not that it was proabably worth posting seeing as they are 17x8 but just seeing if anybody out there in FF land knew anything...

Re: ROH 16X8 no wait 17x8

If they measure 46cm (17 inches) across the face, then they are probably 16" rims. The rim diameter is actually taken from the bead seat, not the top of the outside lip.

There should be a tsamping in the rim along the lines of "16 x 8 JJ" or "17 x 8 JJ" - which does yours have? What size are your tyres (another way to tell if they are in fact 16" or 17")

You will find that the 16 and 17 inch rim uses the same centre, and just a different Spun rim, Simmons do the same thing.

Re: ROH 16X8 no wait 17x8

yes the same inner part.
What size tyres have they got on them?
If they are 17" tyres they are 17" rims.

They're 17" rims. I know, and have proof. Just check out your signature.

Yep - the signature is certainly the proof. If the tyre size is 235/45/17s, then they would NOT be 16" rims.

Re: ROH 16X8 no wait 17x8

You can't put 17" tyres on 16" rims it is just plain impossible for them to seal and inflate, so it the tyres say 17" on them, you have 17" rims.
