    Default Wanted: 15" STEEL WHEELS any type to fit 205

    just after any steel looking wheels for my 205si. i had some gti6 alloys and they didnt look right on it.

    just after some 15 inch steels. preferably the c5 alloy steels. but im not fussed. even some standard steels off a 307 or something similar would be great.

    WITH OR WITHOUT TYRES

    im located in north lakes QLD 4509

    I've got a set of 15" steels, think they're off a 406 but not certain.
    Only thing shipping from Tas might be a bit steep.
    If you get stuck though...

    You may have trouble fitting 15s at the rear, offset is critical.
    Best just to get a set of 405 8 valve steelies, paint them silver or white and fit 185 60 14 or 175 60 14.
    306 wheels have the wrong offset.

    Default What offset for 205si?

    I've run into the same problem. I want to get some 15 X 7 rims for my 205si, but have no idea what offset to order. I know that for a 205GTI the required offset is ET18, but would it be the same for my si?

    I was hoping to match them to some low-profile 195/45/15 tyres and hopefully they'll squeeze in there.

    I don't think 7 inch rims would fit.at the rear.
    Really no point anyway, the car will drive heaps better on the 185 60 14s.

    Why won't they fit? Is the si technically that different to a GTI? Just trying to understand the reason and if there's a way around it, that's all.

    GTi rear guards are cut out bigger, I'm having a little bit of trouble getting clearance for 175 65 14 rally tyres on mine.

    Thanks for that. I suppose there's always the possibility of scraping that rear guard out...

    But on the offset subject, let's say I were to somehow overcome the guard obstacle and successfully jam a 15 X 7 wheel back there, would the correct offset for an si be ET18 (same as a GTI)?

    About all I can say is that Mi16 wheels will just fit if you use a 5mm spacer, others may have had experience with these wheels on GTis.
    Seems to be quite hard to increase the size of the arches. Also, you would probably then have to fit arch extensions to cover up the mess.
    If you are not too bothered with suspension travel as I am, you may get away with a fair bit more.
    These would be for show only I take it, if you're after performance the GTi Pepperpots are spot on for this car. Don't forget even Formula 1 uses 13 inch diameter wheels with 60 series tyres!

    The offset changes with width. Whilst 18mm was correct for a 6" wheel it's not for a 7" wheel. For a 205 with 15x7 the offset needs to be 5mm. ie 7" - 6" = 1". Half of one inch is 12.7mm. Subtract that from the original 18mm.

    i was thinking about that the other day, is there any form of regulation in that decision ?

    after all say a v8 taxi racer has looowww profile tyres but obviously significantly larger weight to corner with more primitive suspension.

    a 205 is only ~200kg heavier than an f1 car, would anyone suggest for short tarmac track day use a 14" wheel is better for a 205 than a 15? or is the choice of tyre a far larger measure of performance between a 60 profile and a 50 ?

    Yes, the regulations stipulate these tyres but they obviously work!
    You can get R tyres made for historic categories in the higher profiles, these would be better than low profile road tyres so yes, the tyre is more important than the size and profile.

    If you're keen on 14s get the Pepperpots like Graham recommended. I'm running them on my si at the moment and they're a good fit. If I ever get around to fitting 15s I'll probably be offering mine up on ebay for sale...

    I think the Si would look good with the standard wheels widened and wider tyres fitted, would definately suit the look that you are going for.

    hahaha i love the look of wide 13s but its really not my style. i like how narrower tyres feel honestly.

    I saw a set of C5 Steelies for sale the other day and they wanted $500.00 for the set of FOUR RIMS without rubber. Highway robery at its best.

    It seems to be now, what alot of guys are trying to achieve is the wider (banded) steel rim with stretched rubber for the "rat like" retro look. AND I LOVE IT!

    .....sais nothing for handleing, performance or fit but looks uber cool on a retro style car. The golfing community (VW type) are getting it down pat as there is a wider range of models and rims to choose from. The pugs don't seem to experiment in the retro class much, thus there is little knowledge about.

    I have searched a few sites and have come up with many an offset calculator and rim lists from different brands of cars showin PCD sizes and offsets and there are quite a few suprising finds - Like a particular Volvo range has a 15" rim, PCD 108 with a offset of 22mm.

    Search hard and there will be many more where that came from. The pic is a bit of an exaduration but you can see where im coming. If i could find a cheap set for my 205 - i'd be in like flynn!

    Tim (tcusack) has a set of these (15x7 ET5) widened 406 wheels which are taking up room in my shed. Ask if he wants to sell. He can only say no.

    i doubt they would fit without serious mods to rear arch.
    the c5 rims will fit as i had them on my si. i think $500 isnt too bad for a rim that bolts straight onto a 205 and weighs only 4.75 kg without a tyre!

    Default C5 wheels

    C5 rims do indeed appear to be a good way to go, although they ain't the prettiest things...

    Some good info on them here:

    http://forum.205gtidrivers.com/index...&hl=steel&st=0

    Anyone got any good pics showing what they look like on a 205?
