    Hubcentric Wheel Adaptors

    Hi All,

    I have seen a set of the above mentioned wheel spacers at www.205gti.com that are made or marketed through Peugeot Ecosse. They allow you to hunt for Ford Rims with the 4/108PCD spacings and bring the 35mm offset back to the Pug 15 mm offset.

    Does anyone know if these are legal in Oz?

    It will allow me to look for a set of rims that will be cheaper and easier to locate than the series 2 speedlines.

    not just ecosse sell them, merseyspeed also do and every tuner in Frane and Germany do also, getting them from http://www.205gti.com is probably the best option as I know a few of them and they're good guys.
    i like to modify my pug but for some reason if i had a 205 i would only want the speedlines on the car, they just suit it so well.
    a chunky 5 spoke would also look good though.

    i reckon it's probably illegal but it's common practice, any wheel/tyre place has 2-5mm spacers lying around which are commonly used for just a touch more clearance.
    i should've guessed you wouldnt know, you only work in the insurance industry LOL

    Andreas,

    Pfffttt...i know all (not)

    I was thinking of the Mi-16 rims in 15 inch for the 205, I saw one on 205gti.com and they look great. Anyone know if these fit the 205 (as per my other post on this that din really get answered)?

    4/108 PCD with a 15mm offset.

    Chipper,

    Chipper they are illegal
    If u get pulled over by T.O.G they will find them straight away as they are well imformed on modifications
    I wouldn't take the risk as they are worth a lot of money.

    here's the word on the mi16 15's, sorry mate.

    "offsets are VERY different...they won't fit without spacers.....minimum spacer size is 1 inch per side (or take a 309GTi rear axle)"

    the one you sw with the gold mi16 wheels had the 309 axle and 1" spacers to make it extra wide.
