Is the wheel/rim size on a 1998 Daewoo Lanos 14 x 5.5? I got a used(from junkyard) wheel off a 1998 Lanos and it won't fit on my 2001 Lanos. What is offset and what does it mean? The shop said the wheel was off by about 1/8". Is there any way it is compatible or do I need a 14 v 6 only? Why is a 1998 14 x 5.5 and a 2001 14 x 6?
Addendum: I now have found out the the wheel that I bought from the junkyard was from a 2000 Daewoo, either a Lanos or a Nubira, and that it has a center hole diameter of 2 1/8 inches and that the wheel hole diameter that I need is maybe 2 1/4 inches although the junkyard is still trying to find the center hole specs. Are the diameters of the wheels center holes different? Where can I find what center hole diameter that I need for my 2001 Daewoo Lanos? Any other comments?
Addendum: The junkyard gave me a wheel off a Toyota Corolla and said to see if it will fit. They think it has a center hole size of 2 3/16". I am awaiting an appointment tomorrow with the shop to see if it will fit and then get my tire on. Why is this SO difficult? Will this Toyota fit? I think he said it was from a 99 Corolla. What should I do? help.
I just came from the shop and the 99 Corolla did NOT fit at all. My internet searches show that only 88-97 Corolla should fit. The site wheel-fitment.com shows a Corolla center bore size as 54.1 mm. this would be about 2 1/8' or so and I maybe need about 2 1/4' bore hole but Daewoo is not listed on this site and bore hole specs are very hard to find. HOW CAN I GET THIS WHEEL. My spare is wearing down and may go. Any help is appreciated.
so here is the update: I have had the following from the junkyard:1) wheel #1 was apparently from a 2000 Daewoo--either a Nubira or Lanos but it would not slip on2) wheel#2 was from a 99 Corolla but center hole was too small3) wheel#3 was from a Mitsubishi Lancer, not known what year, and it was a little too small on the bore hole but the tire shop filed it a little and it started to slip on but then it hit the brake unit and thus could not fit because it was not curved outward at the place where the brake isSo, maybe it hit the brake some also on wheels #1 and #2? I just ordered a wheel on the internet and it should match but it has a center(bore) hole size of 72mm and my Lanos is 57.1mm. I called the company from the internet given number and they think it will work but they added that it would have to also fit the backspacing. Help.
