fitting of 14 inch Le Castellet alloys to GT2

Post by toomanydubs » Tue Jan 17, 2012 11:09 pm

Seeing as i decided NOT TO SELL my beautiful un molested 2 previous owner silver GT2 with 60,000 on i am hoping to use it more this year ( not used at all last year and only 3 times in previous 2 years ). I've had the car over 5 years now and a few years back i bought some Le Castellet alloys in great condition, At the time i didn't realise they were available in 14 AND 15 inch variations, If i had known i would have searched for 15 inch ones instead . So after i have fitted new tyres and had them polished and clear lacquered to original finish with metallic grey scallops and a non- mirror finish like the factory spec ones can i just use the old wheel bolts from the steelies?
Or do i need wheel bolts for alloy wheels? If i do need special wheel bolts which ones and where do i get them ? the car is a 1991 ( regd January 1992) uk spec GT2 8 valve carb model 1800 without power steering
