Bolt Aftermarket Wheels Thread





Do we know the wheel bolt pattern yet? Any ideas on what wheels will fit? Besides a different look, lighter wheels than stock will improve range, although I'm hoping GM will ship the Bolt with some high quality lightweight forged wheels from the factory.

I also decided to dust off my mediocre Photoshop skills to share some ideas with you all. Enjoy

Carbon fiber wheels

There are rumors that GM will offer production carbon fiber wheels soon. The unsprung weight reduction on a Bolt would probably result in a real improvement of range.

The Carbon fiber wheels from GM would be ideal I think. Easily weighing in around 10-12 pounds I would say ? Whereas your regular oem wheel could range from like 18 - 26 pounds easily. Definitely effective to reduce rotational mass !

not sure if I'd switch out the stock ones if they're carbon fiber. Aftermarket carbon fiber wheels aren't exactly cheap.
But since we're on the topic of wheels, any chance you can fit this nice HRE wheel on the Bolt? They're the ring brothers wheel.

As nice as those wheels are I hate the idea of the cost to replace even one of them. My guess is a set alone will be easily $5000. The cost replace just one of them will discourage me from getting them. Still cool to see them photoshopped.
