    Do it.

    As you said. The ride and handling will likely be rubbish. But it's a bit of fun right!?

    You would need very stiff springs to stop the wheels hitting the guards.

    Yea love it. The red trim bits wouldn't go astray though! And if you know what wheels they, lettuce know coz they're nice. Great look- I will probably end up doing it to mine

    Interesting look!

    I'd be taking a wager on how long you lasted on the road before being pinged by the 'authorities'. Generally you can't have tyres protruding outside of the guards/flares and nowadays even for cars of the Pugs vintage you might have issues going more than a 1" wider than standard... every state seems to have different rules, but this may come under ADRs... of course this is generally only a problem if you are having to get an RWC...ymmv

    Look like 307 steels with wider rims fitted.
    Just go to a wheel works , probably around $150 each to get done.

    Yeah I rate the stretch tyres on steelies. There's a crowd in melb that at redo the offset for you. You might getaway with not scrubbing depending on how stretch you go.

    Yeah do it!

    first I need to get my hands on a set of 307 stockies, then contact a wheel fabricator/repairer to get them banded. im guessing the stock 307 steelies are 16'' but the dish on these look to raise it to 17 ish. or is it my eyes. as for the suspension goes I don't think it could get much harder without converting to coilovers. im hoping to get the rears to a x8 fitting as I would like to run clio camber shims as well. potholes have always been a threat so I drive slowly everwhere and wog crawl everything just to be safe.

    They seem to be well regarded. If by 'banded' you mean get a section welded in to widen the rim, I think you might find that is not legal anymore. Sorry if I'm seeming to be a party-pooper :-)... it's not me making the rules.

    Check out a site called stanceworks if you need more convincing. i think it looks great but its definately all about the look. would be a pig to drive and brake the cars back in the long run.

    i was going down this road with my car until i sold it. i found myself trying to compromise between looks and functionality and it doesnt work. if you do it make sure you stick to the plan no matter what dont try and compromise.

    The Never ending 205 GTi story - StanceWorks

    eastern wheel works did my wheels. $280 to cut and reset using the original 6" x 15" rims. i had intended to run 7" x 15" and possibley 8" wide bands but he couldnt source the bands with the correct ID, said that the 307 centre where an odd size. from memory std ID of 15" bands is 320mm the 307 centres have an OD of 323mm could of made them fit by machining the OD of the centres but in my opinion made the wheels weaker as it would machine close to the slots. there are 2 types of 307 rims also hich in hindsight might explain the difference. early 406 style rims are a heavier rim than the 307 rim which are a thinner gauge. can post up some pics later tonight if your interested in seeing reset 15"x6" on my 205

    to proceed with this I need to know the diameter of the centers to know if rims are available. 307 wheels are 16'' outer diameter anyone know the inner? cheers
