Wheel change from 16" to 15".

Anything related to the 206CC

Wheel change from 16" to 15".

Postby Little Muffin » Thu Nov 15, 2018 11:13 am

Hi Everyone. Now, first things first. I don't know anything about cars. Shoes? Certainly. But not cars. I have bought a lovely little 206cc Quicksilver. It's a 2004 model and has 16" wheels on. I live in the North Yorkshire moors and when it snows around here it snows! I want to fit snow tyres to the front and the tyre place I use has said I would be much better off fitting 15" wheels. This gives a much better choice of tyres and gets rid of the "low profile" tyres that are on, giving a more comfortable ride. I trust this guy so what I want to know is, will the 15" wheels off any 206 fit straight on? Thank's, Little Muffin.

Yes, 15" steel wheels from a 206 will fit. Make sure the garage fits tyres with the same rolling radius, or your speedo will be affected.

Your tyre man is correct that the narrower tyres will be a great improvement in snow, but you should do the same to the rear, or the handling will be adversely affected.

If you want new wheels, try https://www.oponeo.co.uk/steel-wheels-finder.

Thank's so much IanL. Like I say, I don't know anything about cars and need all the help I can get! Bye for now, Muffin.

Hi Muffin, I live in Poland so also know a bit about snowy roads! I popped a review on here of some winter tyres I used last year and was really impressed by. I had them on the standard 16's, but they do them in a 15" size as well.
