    Hi Martin,

    Welcome to Aussiefrogs. Sorry I can't really help you out with where to find mags in Sydney but I'm sure Lincoln our tyre geek will be in in the next day or 2 with suggestions.

    My only comment is, are you sure you want 18" wheels on a Pug? You'll destroy the magic ride with such low profile rubber...... The reason the 307 has such large wheels standard is to allow for large brake disc rotors which in turn is why the 307 has best-in-class stopping power

    Good choice on the 307CC though - it looks fabulous!

    Derek.

    Derek, the 307 hatch has a pretty harsh ride anyway with 15" and 16" wheels on it. Sorry to say, but there are plenty of other cars at the same price (for the hatch) with better ride quality. The 307 is however a great drive.

    While 18" might look good, I'd hate to see how hard the ride would be. Obviously some people don't mind this (look at all the Lancers dumped to the ground on huge wheels), but if you want to keep the ride quality and get better grip it would be best to just stick on some really good tyres. It is far better to have expensive tyres on smaller wheels than cheap tyres on expensive wheels. Honestly I think 16" is enough for them -hell the one I've got experience with just has 15" steel rims!

    And low profile tyres are also expensive ... so 12 months from now you'll be up for more cost - not to mention that I have "heard" insurance companies are getting "sensitive" to people running tyres lower then 50 profile ... seems it not only makes it more likely for rim damage ... it also effects the whole suspension and other components. - If anyone can get out of paying up, it'll be an insurance company that's for sure - all they have to prove is people with lower profile tyres cost them more in claims - and bingo an insurance hike !

    XTC206

    PS: I think the 17's on the 307cc look pretty good as they are ... it's not an all out sports car so look forward to enjoying the comfort and ride quality it will offer.
    You're not fooling everyone, or did you forget? .......

    Derek, I'm a tyre geek, not a wheel/rim geek. My suggestion is to go to Bob Jane as they stock a wide range of quality rims and then call around for the best price. I don't know what the offset is on the 307, if you find that out then you can call places like Wheel King in Silverwater.

    One of the main problems with rim shopping is that rarely do any of the websites tell you what offsets are available in a particular size. So you might find a style and have noidea if it fits until you speak to someone.

    So there you go, I'd speak to Wheel King or Bob Jane there. Once you've decided speak to Brendon at Don Cornell tyres in Bexley to order them in (9502 4666) at a good price.

    The next question will be tyres on the 18s which maintain the speed rating of the original tyres. I don't know how much of an impact 18s will be from the 17s...the 17s are already a 205/50 profile, so you'd be going to a 215/40 or something, which is getting pretty firm. If ride comfort is important I'd look at some Avon ZZ3s, as Avon are reknown for soft riding tyres. Depends on what your priorities are before I'd recommend any other tyres.

    Thanks guys,your all probably right with 18inch being to much,I love the origianl 18s on the concept car (red) which had 6 spoke style.I assume the 307cc 133kw package will come standard with 17s when i arrives late this year in oz.
    P.S has anybody heard of roof sealing problems with 307cc delaying production in Europe?....thanks again......Martin

    I haven't heard any delays with 307 CC (according to the dealer we just bought a 307 XSI from). He said there was a delay with the 206 though.

    The 307 XSi has 17s, I'd imagine the 307 CC 133 will definately have 17s at least.

    Not heard ... you'd think it would be better considering who's doing the roof this time.

    The roof of 206CC is made by French coachbuilder Heuliez, but this time 307CC employs German supplier Car Top Systems (CTS) instead, probably not satisfied with the quality problems encountered in 206CC. If you remember, CTS is the 50-50 joint venture between Porsche and Mercedes, and has been supplying countless of good roof systems to Boxster, 911 Cabriolet, Targa, Mercedes SLK, SL and even Ferrari 360 Spider. Therefore hopefully the retractable roof of 307CC will be perfect from the beginning.

    Martin, be very carefull as to what wheels you get, if you want aftermarket and a nicer look like the concept car, id go for ROH or simmons, in particular the ROH MODENA, which ROH can make in any size/stud/pattern and off-set. Its just a matter of patiance and ready cash... as the ROH catalog will show their wheels and style is nice, classy but not super flashy, alot like peugeot! Tyres get as GTI-124 listed, end of story

    Oh the modenas are very nice. That's my favourite rim from ROH at the moment. <img src="http://www.roh.com.au/pages/html/modena120.jpg" alt=" - " />

    I'd personally go for a lightweight modular from ROH or Simmons, but you do that for performance not looks.

    <a href="http://www.wheelwarehouse.com.au" target="_blank">www.wheelwarehouse.com.au</a> lots of good european wheels, suit froggies very well!

    Speak to Craig Williams. He is based in Adelaide, i got him to order my wheels from Italy. They are 17" and at $350 for custom offset and a rare wheel in Australia, i think it was money well spent.

    He is a supplier to wheel/tyre places so you'll save yourself a few 2_cents

    Although the wait time might make you anxious, i thought it was well worth it.

    I say dont worry about big wheels, after 1 week of driving you will be used to it anyway. tyre places are becoming alot more resonable on a 18" wheel, especially since car manufactures are bringing their cars out with bigger wheels (18" is quite common now from a manufacturer), and you can now buy upto 24" wheels, so that makes 18" rims and tyres alot more affordable and the variety from tyre manufacturers is bound to have something that will suit your needs.

    That's an interesting site.

    This wheel looks a bit like one of the standard ones from a 406

    It looks a wee bit like the fan style wheels fitted to some 206CCs and some 206 GTis.

    Not necessarirly ive had my GRID2 205/40/ZR17 on my 306 more than 1.5 years and ive still got very adequet tread left. The Reear tyres are like brand new 90% tread

    Mmmm i think thr 307 17" Rims look hot...they are really nice do you think theyll fit onto a 306 offset?

    Oh as for getting ROH to make u rims u could do that or u could get hub adapators. I went to Donnelons in Box Hill and they got Harrop Engineering to make me up a set of Hub Adaptors....these cost me $800(ekkkk yes i was young and nieve) but i now have a Honda 4X100 fitment

    Good luck with your choice but DONT get chromies...they are just crap

    I will agree that chrome is crap.

    But if for some reason you get chrome wheels, make sure they are chrome dipped not chrome sprayed. Chrome sprayed wheels chip/bubble/peel very easily and generally about 3months after you buy them.

    Chrome dipped are better, but still looked terrible.

    All this business about tyres is beginning to get to me. Hey, why not go REAL low profile. Our newspaper comes with a rubber band around it every day. Look I KNOW that the price of tyres is normally directly correlated with the inverse square of their aspect ratio, but hey, I like the people on this board! I'm prepared to stick them together and sell a set of four 255x 24x.0005 profile tyres for a mere $50 a set!

    Any takers? The ride is shite, but the handling!!!!! Hey, this one keeps the line like its on railway tracks!

    Think about it!

    wink

    Rod, (edit: ooops)

    I've got a nice collection of those - we get some every day at work with our mail.

    They're red rubber bands - they'd certainly be different from your boring run-of-the-mill black tyres

    Let me know if you want to strike up a deal. We could call ourselves RDH tyres - almost looks like ROH wink

    Its Rod here, Derek, not Ray.

    But hey, now you're talking! The opportunities are limitless. You could have wet and dry weather tyres on the same wheel - just pull off a few bands to add a few grooves?

    Maybe we could market the regular brown ones as "space savers" too?

    you'd put the bands on diagnolly across the tread for wets...to get that funky look (besides the fact you only really require deeper section to dispell water). funny guys

    Don't worry, xq, Derek and I at RDH tyres are now working on a way of fitting balloons (we had a few left over from the christmas party) filled with pure hydrogen and nitro-glycerine under the rubber bands to give you a really explosive take off. wink
