cyclone wheel bolts
#1
hi ive got some new cyclones so the cylone 2 instead of the older 1? now i understand they have different bolts however the bolts ive got are for the older cyclone 1 just wondering if these will fit? i know the bolts designed for the newer cyclones wont fit the older cyclones due to the shoulder on them but what about the other way around?
thanks in advance

yes the old bolts will fit the newer wheels
but if you have a steel as a spare carry a set of taper bolts as the newer bolts use the taper on the shoulder to secure the spare if fitted to the hub Wink

so the older bolts wont fit a steelie? is that why they changed to the newer design then?

they changed to the newer design probably to save money in not supplying a fifth alloy as a spare

no the older bolts dont have the taper that is needed for the steel rim fitment so they wont work safely

How do you know if you have cyclone 1 or 2's. my car had swallows but a steel spare so I have flat seated wheel bolts. Are they the right ones for my cyclones [Image: manyne4a.jpg][Image: ave9e9a8.jpg]

clones need the flat seated bolts the early type bolt will fit both cone 1 and 2 wheels.

left bolt is the newer bolt right bolt is the older bolt

Notice shallower center bore

you may find the steel spare has flat inserts on the bolt holes so flat bolts are needed

or you mat find the spare has no inserts on the bolt holes in that case tapered bolts are needed

but the clones will need flat faced bolts

Just checked mine and there a mix.
2x cyclone 1 Italy's (pic 1 bolt hole)
1x cyclone 2 Italy (pic 2 bolt hole)
1x cyclone 2 France (pic2 bolt hole)
Pic 1: taper on top of bolt hole
[Image: 5e5ehuje.jpg]
Pic:2 taper in bolt hole and wider at the top [Image: hy6yry3e.jpg]

So I need the newer bolts for all the alloys to fit?

O right sorry. so I can use them alloys but I need to use the newer bolts to work with the 2's and 1's. in that case that's the end of that. Ha
