15" alloys

Postby PumaThunder » Thu Dec 29, 2016 2:36 pm

Looking for some 15's to go on the track car. Budget around £100.

Not fussed about tyres as we've already sourced some. Not too bothered about colour or condition either really, as we'll refresh them before fitting too.

Will consider anything that fits a puma really!

Orange would be perfect for our Puma. Where are you based? I'm in Oxford.

Any chance you could get an internal diameter measurement? Worried about wheel fitting over 300mm discs, and from what I've read the propeller style ones are a veeery tight fit. Don't know about the gt15's though. Really appreciated!

both wont fit over 300mm brakes matey, you can grind the caliper off some more to fit better under gti wheels not sure about props though worth a try?

agree with the above, you will need to shave calipers to fit any 15"
why not go with the st150 280mm upgrades - it a straight swap

heres my pic of the x5 gti wheels

Just for future reference; the Escort GTi wheels (as in the picture above) DO NOT FIT over 300mm brakes, even with 20mm spacers they just slightly catch around the inside of the rim.
