    Default 14" 306 rim, offset?

    Hi guys I have my wheel off looking inside the rim for any kind of numbers/codes that tells me the offset of the wheel. But I cannot find it.
    Is anyone able to tell me where it is located?

    If its not noted on the wheel measure it yourself it's easy.

    The offset of a wheel is the distance from its hub mounting surface to the centreline of the wheel.

    if it is steel it will be on the outside near the safety bead. mine says something like michellen made in england j15 x 5.5 et cant remember but i think it is et 25? you might need to wash with hot soapy water to reveal it. if its alloy should be on the back somewhere.

    Various offsets for 306 wheels:

    5.0 B 13 = 20 mm

    5.5 B 13 = 20 mm

    5.5 J 14 = 24 mm

    6.0 J 15 = 18 mm (steel)

    6.0 J 15 = 19 mm (alloy)

    Intresting.
    Because I have been looking for some 15" wheels, and I found some on ebay that are 25mm offset. So they should fit no problem.

    How certain are you that my wheels are 24mm? Cause every google search result I find tells me that peugeot wheels are between 15-18mm or 16-20mm.

    Cheers

    I'm 90% certain that your wheels have a 24 mm offset, but the only way to be 100% certain is to visually verify.

    You're not trying hard enough.

    Modern pugs use wheels with bigger offsets than those you've mentioned so far.

    My 306 has the same rims, I have measured them at 24mm. My Mi16 runs 15" and they have 19mm offset. They do fit on the 306. but not well, they would need a spacer to make them work properly.

    Cheers.

    Sweet! Must be 24mm then.
    These are the wheels I was looking at http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Mag-Rims-...item2c5d65dccf

    They are 25mm according to the ad so an increase of 1mm shouldn't be a problem.

    If you purchase the 15" wheels, would you be interested in selling 1 of your 14" wheels..?
    I need a spare alloy..

    Cheers
