ND wheel spec

Postby John H » Thu Apr 14, 2016 9:11 pm

Can anyone tell me the full spec of the wheels on the ND?
Like rim width, PCD and offset.
All the brochure say is either 16" or 17" wheels, nothing more.

Thanks

Just one point unlike the NC where the 16" and 17 " tyres have the same circumference virtually that is not the case with the 16" and 17" on the ND.

Well with 5% but a bit out for the speedometer but still legal.

The cars with 17" wheels have a different speedo to the cars with the 16"wheels and they have the same final drive ratio, that seems strangeto me between the 1.5 and 2 litre .

I think the ND has 4-stud wheels rather than 5-studs like the NC.
