  • Wheel Swap Thread

    Is there a running list available of which wheels, off which cars, are a direct bolt on swap to a stock festiva? Researching sizes and offsets gets tedious. Let's get a list going... unfortunately I don't know any.

    It's stickied right above this thread!

    It has all 4 hole wheels, but you can skip to the bottom where the 4x4.5 pattern is.

              I discovered last year that 4 hole Kia Rio wheels are a perfect fit on Aspire swaps. Offset/hub hole/caliper clearance etc. Pretty quick swap over to 14s as long as you're willing to invest in smaller tires. Sorry, didn't notice you had said 'stock' Festy, in that case mid to late 90s Suzuki Swift/Pontiac Firefly/Geo Metro wheels are pretty much instant.

                So, I would like to resurrect this thread since I have a similar question.
                I have an aspire swap, I know about the long list of rims that will fit.
                Other than aspires what vehicles can I go to the junkyard and have the tire and rim combo that's on them work for the festiva with an aspire swap? Aspires are a bit rare here. I realize I can get rims off many different cars and then buy new rubber, or even used, and mount and balance them, but the cheaper option of just getting all that as a package deal is preferred.
                Thanks.

                  Typically there is no package in the correct size, even the new Mitsubishi mirage is too tall. We need something between 21.5 and 22" tall. Very few vehicles came with such a short tire. The closest will be a metro (yes they came in both bolt patterns depending on generation).
                  I do understand the desire to keep it economical, but do you really want to trust your life with some junkyard tires?

                    I'm pretty sure Metros, whether Geo or Chevy, 12" or 13", always were 4 x 4.5"/114.3mm. I notice the 4-hole wheel list does not list them in either 4x100 or 4x4.5, except for 1998 - 99. An omission.

                    Some other Geos were 4x100 though.

                        I see, thanks.
                        Yes, i do. Its a tire, not a used syringe. I have used only junkyard tires aside from the first new set i bought new for my festiva and winter tires. They have date codes and you look them over for cracking before buying them. Anything you cant see is no different than buying a new tire from a local store. The only tires i have ever had fail are ones purchased and installed at a local shop for my civic. The treads seperated quite prematurely. Tires are tires, no matter where you purchase them. Where their made and who makes them is important but most are made in china now anyway. i never even had problems the one time i bought 2 super old 12in tires, ran them right down to the wires :/. But all 4 of those civic tires seperated long before they got to the wear bars. Newer date code, never underinflated/overinflated. Just how it goes.
