    Default Wheel rim weights

    For reference - there may be a better resource out there. Iíve been looking to see what wheel options there are that might be a bit lighter than the Cyclones I have on my 306. I came a cross this thread on the 306 GTI 6 forum:

    Wheel weight inventory - Wheels / Tyres Forum - Peugeot 306 GTi-6 & Rallye Owners Club

    Confirms that the C5 steelies are the way to go - if you can get a set!

    Ha! I've already got a set of those anchors, thanks. They will mostly be used to make sure the 405 doesn't fall on me while I'm under it or to make sure things don't blow away.

    C5 steelies come up for sale here every now and then if you keep your eyes open. The people selling them usually know what they're worth though. They are worth it though, I reckon and they're still cheaper than anything aftermarket for the same weight. They're so light, the first time I picked one up I almost threw it through the ceiling.

    Just PlastiDip spray-on rubber coating. No prep or masking needed, just spray on and peel off the overspray. If you don't like the colour just peel it off too.
