I have already purchased some Alloys off of the interweb. They're a set of Vulcan 15" x 6Jrims, genuine Kia ones at a fraction of the price.
I just wanted to work out what tyres would look good on them as I could have chosen several different options, but I've decided after looking at the set of boots that seroxatmad has on his wheels that I'll go for the 175/50/15 option. I can buy a set of Hankook Optima tyres for £210 fitted.
I've been told they will fit the Picanto by the guy that sold me them. They are astandard Alloys for the Rio. They are also 6J's which are .5" narrower than yours, but .5" wider than the 15" Picanto ones. 175/50/15's will sit on them fine. We'll seeweek after next when I get the car.
I'm a little concerned that the Rio Alloys won't fit because of the Hole size that goes though the centre of the wheel. In cars I've had in the past, a lip on the hub should sit within this hole, aligning the wheel to the hub and thus keeping everything central. I have read that this hole is a different size for the Picanto measuring 67.1mm diameter. Where as the Rio'sAlloys (that I have) measure in at 54.1mm diameter. If the picanto relies on this lip for location then I fear the alloys won't seat properly due to the lip being larger than the hole.
I was hoping to fit the tyres this week, butif no one can give me a definitive answer Iwill probably have to wait until I havecollected the car next Mondayand have a go at fitting them myself to find out.
