Default Will these wheels work on this 900t?

I just (scored) got a set of the late 80's vintage of alloy wheel w/ studded snows (pratically new) to replace the steel rims I am currently using for snow tires. I forgot about the little stem that is screwed into the hub that fits into the 5th hole of the steel and alloy rims my '93 came with (see avatar). Can this stem be unscrewed and not used in order for the older alloy rims (that don't have the 5th hole) to work, or is it serving another purpose that isn't obvious from the picture? I haven't even been able to check the lug spacing. The alloy rim and stem are shown in the attached photo.

Hi,

Sorry, won't fit even if you remove the locating peg. The big hole in the center of the wheel is a different size on your hub.

You'll need '88-'93 900 rims or any set of 9000 rims with the 4 - bolt pattern.

but the good news is the tyres will still work, you just need to move them over.

You might have pre 88 wheels there.
If the car is post 87, the bolt pattern is a different measurement, so you'll be out of luck.
If the bolt pattern matches, why not drill a hole for the pin?

measure diagonally accross from the centre of one stud hole, to the other (top left to bottom right), this will give you your PCD

if it is 108mm something, you have pre '87 wheels that wont fit, if its 114mm something, then you have post '87 that will fit!




why not, intstead of taking it out, just cut off the peg... im sure it is only there for wheel mounting ease, and doesnt actually do anything

I traced the hole pattern from my '93 wheels and placed it over the wheels in question. Lug pattern is not even close. No go. Anyone want some pre '88 rims?
