    Default Fitting big wheels to 306

    Hey Guys
    i have a 93 306 xr and have just got some 15" wheels for it. I have stud adapter plates to fit 4X100 wheels which make the wheels stick out. I am wanting to go bigger like maybe 17"s but dont know how as i already rub the guards and have had them rolled. i also want to lower it but have the same problem with rubbing. some one must have gone thru this before any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    17" should fit, you probs will experience some rubbing, rubber band tyres will obviously be required so be prepared to spend $$$. But it lookz sik bro ,

    What are rubber band tyres? you just mean low pros? cos i can get a cheap set of wheels of a mate. Also all that plastic under the guards, can that be removed or is it there for a reason?

    I've heard they can be removed to give some extra space.

    I removed those plastic guards and it fixed the rubbing and gave me heaps of room. Problem solved thanks guys.

    ... just be very carefull here, I have now been involved with x3 306 wheel fit outs,... It is ALOT better to save and get properly fitted 16" wheels with 195/45/16 tyres, which will be the best compramise between handling and looks, if you want all out look (each to his own) then save money and fit tasty looking 18's on 215/35/18 rubber.... however expect rubbing, even at 17's there is mild rubbing.-Chris

    PS, you know you can OEM Peugeot 17's from the 206gti180....... just a though...
    ... ptui!

    personal opinion. But when considering optimised handling anything biger then 15's is a joke. 15's give you a compromise of having a wide range of mags that look good and also having a car that handles the way it was designed to

    i'd say 15", i had 14" steelies (yes i know) which made steering very tight, now with 16" it's lighter but still very good, i think 15" would be perfect but 16" are good too & look sik, the chick at maccas told me.
