Could anybody tell me, do the chevy Matiz or Daewoo Matiz wheels fit on the spark...the wheels I have are the steel ones that you cant put a cover on and they look fairly kak and dated.

Cheers

Nick

Nicky, You must always state year & variant of your vehicle as specifications can change over the 'build lifetime' of a vehicle.
Quick simple answer is No !
The Matiz has wheels of 4x114.3mm PCD, 69.1mm Centre bore, 45mm offset with two possible bolt sizes 12x1.25 or 12x1.50
The Spark 2010>16 has 4x100mm PCD, 56.6mm Centre bore, 45mm offset with bolt 12x1.50

....The upside is that with 4 x 100 PCD, and 45 offset, there are plenty of wheels that will "fit" on the hubs well enough, the downside is that the Spark has very narrow rims in standard fitment, being 4.5J and 5.5J, and this will make for a fiddly set up to get the rolling radius correct, and avoid scuffing, if you stray away from the standard fitment.

First port of call is eBay breakers for a Spark with alloys, an LT or LTZ, several listed at this time. I paid about £160 for an Aveo set 3 years ago, with tyres just a few months old, preferably get them cheap and fit NEW all season tyres.

If you want to "stray", then spend some time on www.wheel-size.com and as the Americans would say, "do the math" to work out the likely effects, and your options, that is your time to spend, not ours!

The steels do indeed look cack, but then so does the whole car really, needs the LTZ roof bars, fog lights and boot spoiler, along with metallic paint to get it anywhere near acceptable to me :unsure::D

Nicholas, I'm slightly confused. Are you the same member as Nicky mentioned above or another member of similar name?
What is a 'normal' wheel in your definition? If you want snap on trims have you tried your local motor factor ie Eurocarparts etc.

Same request applies as made previously - please complete your Sign-Up ie Location (which has been left blank) and provide full vehicle details in your Signature Footer. Other helpful guidance in the following link :- Helpful Guidance Using the Forum

Well, as above, the easy way is to just get on to any breaker on eBay with a set of alloy wheels from a Spark, however i'm guessing that a simple, straightforward action like that is not the way this query is going.....


On the left is the widest, biggest wheel generally found on a UK Spark, On the right, the standard 14" steel rim from a 1.2 Aveo, the most common you are likely to find.

Diameter, 1mm different, so all good, backspace is up by 6mm, which means that the extra width will increase the "stick out" by 185-165=20mm, so you need to check your current wheelwell and "fender" clearance to see if this is a fit-nobody on here who does not have a Spark to measure can do that for you.

I you don't understand the above, then you probably should not be attempting this. Don't forget too, that when you are in the car, you cannot see the wheels, and when it is moving, nobody else can either. The price of vanity...

Also remember that as far as I know, there are no clairvoyants or distant vision specialists on the forum, we rely on you telling us what car you have, and its features.

I am a new member, Nicky. A normal wheel I mean the crappy silver painted steel ones the car comes with....they dont seem deep enough to snap on a plastic wheel cover?

When you say there are many wheels that fit, do you have any specific examples so I might know what to look out for

Nicky, Have you checked your wheelwell and "fender clearance as suggested in the previous post? If not, then we cannot help you, this is something that YOU will need to check and report back.

To re-iterate,make your life easy, ask one of the eBay sellers with a Spark LT/LTZ how much they want for a set of wheels-there are at least 4 on there at the moment-this will save you lots of hassle as they will fit.

When I say that many wheels will fit, I mean that 100 x 4 M12.5 is a very common hub fitment, but the checks outlined above are needed to make sure that the wheel/tyre combination does not interfere with the bodywork or steering ability of the car, and maintains speedometer accuracy.

There is a good chance that Aveo wheels would suit, but with an extra projection of 20mm, that is by no means certain.

Within my small car collection (not listed in the footer) is one that has wheels that are 20mm wider than another one of the same model. It has a steering rack that is different to the other models in the range, to stop the tyres scrubbing on the inner wheel arches while turning, hence the wheels cannot be switched between models. This is why caution is needed even when things look very similar.

If you are going away from manufacturers specification, then you may need to spend quite a bit of your own time measuring and checking.

Nicholas, Between my self and Member Metro you have been provided with heaps of information for you to do your own homework and shopping.
You have been asked to complete your Sign-Up and vehicle information twice by me (in providing info on Forum Guidance) and Metro has advised that it is difficult if you dont provide details. You have ignored (or not bothered to read) the Member Guidance notes & requests and you have been provided with suitable web links for WheelSize.com and Wheelftment. (all given above).

The standard Spark - which we are assuming you have (because you've given no vehicle details despite our requests) usually has PCD 4x100 , CB 56.6; 45 offset, bolts 12x1.50 (all this given before) . The fundamentals are that any replacement wheel MUST fit the PCB (the position of the bolts) and the CB (Centre Bore). Offset has to ensure that the wheel sits correctly without conflicting with body work and MUST clear the brake callipers and suspension struts.
Metro has already identified that the Aveo has this size (you can find this by using the WheelFitment website already provided).

In other words you have all the information you need to do your own shopping. If any of this is beyond your understanding then your best approach is to visit local wheel supplier.
