What size wheel rim & where to get one
#1
I have a 2005 2.0L Diesel Berlingo Desire. I became aware today that at some point in the past couple of months (since I had the car MOTed) someone has stolen my spare wheel! I have no idea why as it was in pretty poor condition and nothing special. However I now need a new one.

The tyre size on my Berlingo is 185/65 R15. How do I know what size wheel rim to get to ensure it will fit my car? And does anyone know the best place to get one in the Manchester area? What sort of price should I expect to pay?

Thanks for your help.

Check the size stamped on ,or cast into your remaining rims paying particular attention to the offset factor stated as the MK 2s can be particular over wheel arch clearance.
Online dealers can supply new wheels often for little more than local scrappies will charge for grotty used ones.

If you find a good source for a spare wheel then let me know, as someone has pinched my spare too!:censored:
God knows why as it was pretty crusty and the tyre was barely legal.

Look on ebay, it must be a Peugeot Citroen wheel as despite it having the same stud spacing as Fords and others the spigot is larger on the Citroen. As others have said the offset is critical, I think the Picasso has a similar offset and will be a better source of 15" wheels than a Berlingo.

This may help

Also possibly explains why Mk2 Berlingo wheels get stolen in the first place.........

Local scrapyard £20 maybe £25 including a good tyre ..... Ebay is normally too expensive .........

Thanks everyone for your help and apologies i haven't got back sooner but life took over as always.

I've now had a look at the remaining four wheels :-) and they have the following markings:

"ET18"

"0305"

"2150740"

"HL 2" [the HL is in a circle]

"6J x 15" followed by "BJ" or "8J"

"H2"

I have almost no idea what these mean! Which are the important ones I need to match up when going to a scrap yard etc?

Thanks again for all your help

Easiest thing to do is take a wheel or take the van and get the scrappy to compare

ET18 is the offset and 6J x 15 is rim width and size. Generally this is all you need to match up a rim.

If you know the wheel stud pitch and centre hub size (just measure them) you can to start looking for non Citroen wheels
