    Default Peugeot 15" alloy rims (5 of) from MI16

    I only recently acquired these 15" alloy rims but as it turns out they do not fit my car (306 XT).

    4 of the rims are in great condition, however one has a scratch where it has (probably) been kerbed. See photo attached.

    The rims are fitted with 195/60 tyres, which are approx 90% worn (would not pass for roadworthy).

    I would prefer a straight swap for alloy (or similar) rims that would suit my car. I'm told those rims from an XSI, S16, GTI6 or Rallye would suit this car (thanks purr-john )

    Cash price: $250 ONO

    Inspection welcome

    They do. They will require a spacer to fit correctly I believe...

    Yes, technically you are correct.

    With spacers, these wheels will fit on my car, but after discussing this option in another thread, I have decided against it. Aparrently, the use of spacers voids your insurance and is illegal in Victoria.
    Plus, I'm told it reduces the performance and handling. I can't see the sense in having a car renowned for its handling and then mofifying it to compromise its best feature.

    I'm sure someone has some wheels they would like to swap for these. I reckon they look pretty flash!

    I have some pretty badly rashed gti6 cyclones. All straight and balanced. Just cosmetically pretty poor. I would love to get a set of mi wheels but the shipping would be a pain.

    On a serious note I had 4 rims sent from Brisbane to Melbourne door to door - just under $50 through Smartsend !

    Arranging a straight swap both parties are happy will prove dificult. I figure one party (in this case you) may need to sweeten the deal to make it fair. Not sure I'd want your rims if they are too damaged though... Maybe send me a pic?

    In regard to cost of freight, I think Andrew might be onto something. 1 rim + tyre weighs 16kgs. If we could reach an amicable arrangement, I would be prepared to take the rims to a local courier depot.

    PM me if you wish to discuss further.

    Cheers

    Sorry... I read this and had to laugh. Cyclones in rough condition are worth at least as much as common mi16 rims!

    I think your after too much for the Mi16 rims - $480.00 Hhmm. I regularly see them advertised for $100.00 to $150.00 a set - and they take a while to sell at that price. ......unless they have good tyres

    But dont take any notice of me - I have only parted out two Mi's
    ....now watch a Peugeot turn into a corner!

    I do tend to agree......I sold the standard mint S1 Mi16 unmarked rims with 60% Yokohama S Drives for $200 and about $60 to freight to Melbourne. Had them advertised on AF for ages too before they sold. Each to their own though.

    The fronts don't unless your running the 307 / 306 calipers. BUT if your running the SMR wheels you will need to shave a little bit from the caliper outer edge or a bit off the inside of the wheel.

    There is a increased area of metal on the SMR 405 mi16 wheels by the hubface which rubs on the caliper.

    The rears will need 5 - 10mm spacers to prevent it hitting the rear inner arch.

    Ok... So I payed waaaay too much for these wheels... That's depressing.

    If I have to wear a loss in order to move these wheels on, so be it. I'd be prepared to consider any reasonable offer in light of the previous comments.
