2016 Bailey 765 moto
I have a Bailey 765 Motorhome 2016. Simple job, see some nice alloy wheels, bobs your uncle, well I thought.
Having found some 15inch alloys (matching the original size) I made an enquiry with the company who kindly replied asking what size my PCD is, either 71.1mm or 78.1mm. There was an explantation in Mandarin, which I have no understanding of :(
Could anybody firstly tell me what PCD I need and secondly, to give a wider choice of alloy, could I go to 16 inch rims.
Thank you in advance
Ian

It will be 118 mm or 130 mm , measure from stud to stud but if you have 15 inch rims it's probably 118

Assuming that they have a ducato/boxer/relay 2006 onwards šŸ˜‚

Seriously ian580 ,what vehicle do you have?

If its one of the above, do you know if you have a lite chassis - 118mm pcd or a maxi chassis - 130mm

Please be very wary, all the cheap alloy wheels are not rated for the weight of a motorhome, and prone to premature failure. There used to be a German seller on eBay with TUV approved wheels, but dearer. Even these were right at their limit for a heavier van

Some alloys are just a generic wheel on the correct PCD obviously but they then adapt the hub flange diameter to the wheel with a spacer, there is a funster on here who had a real chew on with this design as it kept snapping wheel bolts, so be aware (y)

Many thanks for the heads up

Thank you, hopefully someone may reply who has the same Van and may suggest which is a good alloy to choose.

So to find out the pcd, measure between 2 studs, if it's around the quoted 71.7mm, it's the 118mm pcd, and if it's around the 78.1mm pcd it's the 130mm pcd

I went to 16" alloy rims from 15" myself, but as TheBig1 said be careful with the weight rating, mine are only 1000kg each, the same as what came on mine, but I would have been happier with some 1250kg rated one's as my rear axle limit is 2000kg, so these are right on the limit

Just to piggy back a question
Has anyone gone from 15inch 118pcd to 16 118pcd steel rims and what supplier preferably with a higher rating. For uprating and better choice of all season tyres. (do not want Alloys)

Good advice (y) These are TUV approved and 1200kg a corner, Ā£700 a piece though :unsure:

If I was going for steel rims I'd go genuine fiat rims

Please do not buy Alloys from China, there are least 3 great companies selling the correct rated Alloys for Motorhomes and they will ensure you get the correct wheels for your Van. Take a look at this 2 for starters.
