17*7.5 ET25 Peugeot 3008/5008 steel wheels with 195/40R17 tyres.

Vehicle lowered 6" all round. 10mm bolt through spacer on the front to clear suspension strut, 20mm bolt-on spacers on the rear to clear inner arches.

No fouling, no touching, no scraping, full steering lock maintained.

Since lowering the rear arch lips have been rolled for clearance, but at standard ride height there was no arch/tyre interface with untouched rear arch lips.

I reckon that you could maybe go to 225 on the width. My old 406 was on 7x16 wheels (12mm offset) with 215/55x16s & there was less room in the arches on that than I have on the Partner & I never had any issues on full lock. If I ever find another set of cheap 406 coupe wheels I'd like to stick them on.

I'd be interested to know if any of the guys that have posted so far have any limitations on steering lock. Is there any sign of rubbing when making tight turns?

Standard so far
