Alloys
#1
Hi I am new here.

I have a Peugeot Partner Tepee 2011 wheelchair conversion,it has 205/65/15 steel wheels.
I am thinking about fitting a set of alloys from a 307,with 205/55/16.
The offset is different steel 27 alloys 34,would I need to use wheel spacers,is there anything else I would need to consider in fitting these alloys.
Thanks Alan.

I assume you are swapping the tyres over?

I personally wouldn't drop 10% aspect ratio just to have Alloys.

You will require the proper wheel bolts for alloy wheels.

So you are leaving the 55 aspect  ratio tyres on?

Bad idea in my opinion.

205/55/16 will be ok, they are 2.47% out, I use this when changing tyres about http://www.etyres.co.uk/how-to-change-your-tyre-size/

Silverlingo - have you missed that the old ones are 15" and the new ones are 16"?

I think the 55/65 difference makes up for the difference in wheel diameter. It should be fine. You definitely don't want 65 profile on 16" wheels - it would be huge.

I think the factory size tyre for 16" is 215/55/16. As the profile is 55% of the width, the subtle increase in height makes it just 0.77% smaller instead of the 2.47% smaller. 205/65/16 would be 3.86% too big.

Etyres recommends up to 2.5% variation, but obviously nearer is better.
