    Hi, my brother needs to put new tyres on his car (Hyundai Atoz) and has decided that his alloys are a little worse for wear and so is thinking of buying a new set. About 15 minutes ago we remembered there is a brand new set of Vauxhall Corsa alloys hidden away in the garage from my other brothers corsa, which he only had on for 2 weeks after buying the car from new and so it would be silly not to use them. The problem is that although both wheels use 4 nuts they are spaced wider on the Hyundai than on the Corsa and therefore won't fit. Is there anything that can be done to change this so that the wheels will fit? It would be brilliant if there was as it would save the money for new tyres and alloys.

    Thanks

    Matt

    More hassle than its worth tbh. Sell the corsa ones and then buy a new set for the Atoz.

    Not worth the hassle if the stud pattern is different.

    Not what I wanted to hear but thanks anyway. How much would it cost to get 4 alloys refurbished? My brother just wants to clean the car up a little as he'll be selling it in the next year or so once insurance comes down a little.
