Actually, neither - the wheel is hub-centric, which requires the center of the wheel to fit over the hub with a good deal of precision. The too-small center won't allow the wheel to fit over the hub, and won't allow proper contact with rotor/drum surface. Too-large center will go 'sloppy' and cause vibration due to radial run-out from the wheel center not being at center of rotation.Hi all,
I am buying tomorrow a used set of aluminum rims but I'm not sure if I will have problem with the bore size (center hole).
I have a 1994 Camry LE, 4cyl., with only 14inch steel rims and want to have aluminum rims now (because I have one set of 15inch summer tires).
I saw a used set of Mazda 626 rim (15inch) forsale:
with the following specs (5x114.3mm / 12x1.5 Lugnut / 59.60mm Bore)
My Camry specs: (5x114.3mm / 12x1.5 Lugnut / 60.06mm Bore)
So the Mazda626 has a slightly smaller bore (59.60mm).
Will this smaller bore too tight for my camry's bore ? (I think slightly BIGGER would be fine, but NOT slightly SMALLER) ?
Thank you so much for your guidance.
The wheels could be machined - lot of trouble, though, and costly. Also kind of hard to get just right.
