Put on 2:nd gen 20" OEM wheels on 1:st gen?
Tried to search in the forum for one hour now without finding the answer so I try with this post:
I have the first gen MO (2007) and have for a long time looking for some rim upgrade.
I came across a set of OEM 20" from 2:nd gen MO (2013) with stock tires 235/55/20.
ET on these rims is 50.
I have compared this with the stock wheels from my MO and all should be fine. ( Stock spec. 225/65/18 ET 40 )
Also I found a old post here on the forum where another guy have tried the similar setup and quote "Bolt on"
Based on this I decided to buy the new 20" set and put it on yesterday.
Sure, it was "Bolt on" and it looked great i would say! Refer to attached pic.
When I went out for the testride all felt good in the beginning but after the first wide turn I start hearing some noice from the front wheel.
Turned down the windows and heard a small "sqratch noice" from the front. Seems the sound getting a bit worse when I turn the wheels a bit.
My feeling is that the sound comes from the brake area.
Maybe I just have noticed it by coincident and it's not comnected to the wheel upgrade.(?)
My question to you guys is if you have similar experience of putting 2:nd gen 20" wheel on 1st gen MO, or know some old post where this wheels setup is discussed?
Thanks for all support!
