Any owner of a VAZ-2109 sooner or later has a question: what is the bolt pattern on the disks of their car? Usually they ask it at the moment when they begin to think about replacing these important elements of the wheels, which ensure traffic safety and the image attractiveness of the vehicle.
In general, the concept of "bolt pattern" means the distance from the center of one mounting hole of the disc to another. For the most part, this parameter is the same for all products of the Volzhsky Automobile Plant, but in general no standard values have been developed. Therefore, the bolt holes on the hubs are not the same for different manufacturers.
This parameter of the wheels of VAZ cars is marked with such a combination - 4 × 98. As mentioned before, this is a standard value for all models of a domestic manufacturer.
It stands for it quite simply. So:
Many have noticed that the corresponding markings on foreign vehicles begin with the number 5. As you might guess - it should be understood this way - the disc is attached directly to the hub with just that many bolts.
If you draw a circle through the holes, you get the overall diameter. In particular, the VAZ-2109 leaves the factory conveyor with 13-inch disks.
They use tires of the following marking - 175/70 R13.
When planning to purchase third-party rims for your car, it is important to know which ones are suitable for your model. In particular:
It so happened that the VAZ-2109 has always been more popular than the VAZ-2108. And this is despite the fact that the "eight" began to be produced earlier than the legendary "nine". At the time of the start of production, the VAZ-2109 was already popular, because the 5-door hatchback was more practical and more convenient than the 3-door. Now this car is still in great demand and the price for it practically does not fall. How did it all begin?
The first "Nine" appeared in 1987 - it was then that its release began. This version was not much different from the VAZ-2108, only by the presence of 5 doors instead of 3. However, even then the car found its first fans.
Large-scale changes took place in 1991, which affected the appearance. Then in the front part they added an elongated hood, fenders and changed the radiator grille. Externally, the car has changed quite well, there are more fans. However, the salon remained the same. When driving, its elements created an unpleasant sound. For this reason, the engineers changed the design of the center panel, which is now "high". Creaks and other unpleasant sounds are gone, and a tachometer and trip computer were added to the dashboard. However, this innovation was only available in a complete package.
With regard to the technical equipment, there were no changes, it remained the same as that of the VAZ-2108: initially the car was produced with engine 1., and then versions of 1. and 1. liters were added. Engine 1. was installed on specimens for export. Later, the car began to be equipped with only engine version 1., the rest were removed. In a very limited number, copies were produced with a VAZ-415 engine, the power of which made it possible to accelerate the car to 200 km / h.
Right-hand drive versions were also produced for export. However, now it is almost impossible to find such, since they are all converted for left-hand drive. Index for right-hand drive "nines" 21096 or 21098.
Soon, re-export options began to appear on the secondary market. Then they immediately found their customers, since the build quality was better, and there were a lot of improvements.
In 1997, the assembly of the VAZ-2109 began in Finland. However, this did not last long, only one year. The car was equipped with body-colored bumpers and fog lights. On request, a plant in Finland could provide a car with an airbag in the steering wheel, as well as an alarm and other options. The suspension of these versions has been modified.
