Question Installing my baleno alloys+tyres in my esteem ?

I've been thinking of getting 15 or 16 inchers on my baleno for quite some time and now that our old esteem is being used again and needs new tyres (been using Michelin Certis 175/70 R13 for ~45k kms), I was wondering if I could use my 14" Auras (45 offset - don't recall the PCD but the rest had to be correct for the baleno) and my 195/60 MXF Sports in it ?

Is it a possible to do so - will the alloys fit and will the larger tyres fit in the wheel wells without any rubbing ?

cheers

PCD differs. You can get multi-pcd rims but I don't know what you have.

They make different PCDs for the same model. The Esteem is 114.3 PCD, same as the Zen.

why not just jack up your esteem and install one of baleno wheel assy in front and turn it full on both sides and see for yourself for clearances?

The PCD's of the baleno (100)and the esteem(114.3) are different .. Hence it will not be possible to install these wheels from the baleno onto the esteem .. However you might have to get multi PCD rims but that again would be useless on an esteem since you drive the baleno more ..
