    Default need help fitting rims to 306.

    hey guys recently got a set of 206 nimrod alloy wheels and was looking to fit them to my 306, i need help with the offsets for the spacers to be 100% sure i dont know much about what im doing but im going to get someone to put the rims and spacers on seeing as its illegal (i think) to have them on.. any info on which spacers to use and other things will be good. cheers

    Ignore the bleating do-gooders who'll probably derail your thread with their tuppence worth. With spacers if they are of decent thickness make sure you fit proper hub-centric items and increase the bolt length accordingly.

    There's a website called "1010 tires" who have a usable wheel offset calculator page. That should assist in selection of the correct spacers. I'd suggest mocking up a front and rear one side with whatever as spacers (eg washers) not to road test but to confirm the calcs.

    You sure it needs spacers? I've ran those wheels on lots of cars and found the only ones that needed spacers was the 406 which has a weird offset originally. All I really needed was the genuine wheel nuts.

    According to the GTi6 forums, 10mm is stated.

    Nimrods - Wheels / Tyres Forum - Peugeot 306 GTi-6 & Rallye Owners Club

    You have 206 gti 16' Ouragan's not 406 16' nimrods. They are et28 hence the need for the 10mm spacers.

    It will be hard to get a 10mm hubcentric as its right on the borderline before most go hubcentric at 15mm. Id just get a set of 15mm spacers will fill the guards a bit more.

    I'd agree with that plan; safer when torqued up.
