alloys

Post by david troughton »

Help!
would someone be kind enough to let me know which other car alloys will drop straight onto my 16TRS meteor.
I understand 4x108 and 5.5 J, but can't seem to find 'offset' info. Thanks DT

Peugeot 205/309/405, zx and xantia

If it's a meteor and has original hubcaps keep them safe as they are rare.

My Meteor has ZX alloys on it. I think previous owner must have sold the original hubcaps.

Should have an offset of 16–20mm. Peugeot 205 GTI alloys in 14 and 15in will fit; the nicest in my opinion are the 15in C5 'steely' alloys which are half the weight of the standard alloys and thus reduce the unsprung weight rather than increase it which most 15in alloys will do…

Yes but they don't look right, Peugeot 206 alloys don't look too bad.

It will depend on the offset – many with the correct 108mm BCD 4stud fitting have an offset which is far too much for the BX – if they are specified to fit Ford they will normally have an offset between 34 and 42mm…
