[Tires & Wheels] Alloys
#1
Looking for a wee bit advice. I have decided to get a set of alloys for my 2006 Mk2 Enterprise van. Currently it has 175/65/14 steel wheels but I am looking to go 15inch. Any advice regarding the max/most suitable width wheel/tyre that won’t foul arches, discs hubs etc would be much appreciated. Also which other make/models will fit my vehicle. (4 x 108).
Thanks, 
Dave.

I think that 15" wheels are a standard fitting on the M59, at least for cars so you should have no problems with Pug or Citroen wheels, I think Fords also have the 4x108 on some vehicles too. I'm not certain about vans so will wait for others to correct me if wrong.

Hi Tanto,

While I cannot give you the best advice, I bought these:https://www.wheelbasealloys.com/alloy-wheels/msw/19/silver/15-inch
They are 6.5j width and fit nearly perfectly on the M59, but the offset is slightly on the tight side, i.e. they are very slightly inside the wheel arches. I have them with winter tyres (Continental 185/65/15) on and have not had a problem with the alloys. If you cannot find more info on these, I can dig the other parameters, e.g. exact offset. My car is a Peugeot Partner 2007; M59, a badge difference, but most likely the same offsets.

Cheers,
saskak

From having owned both a van and car version of the M59 I've found that the larger tyres are more prone to wear especially on the outer edges, they are also noisier.

Further to this you'll find that the larger tyres tend to be more expensive and any "offers " tend to be on the smaller size.

I've also found the steering and general agility to be better with the smaller tyres as is the ability to traverse snow covered roads.

Thanks for the insight, although mine came with the 15" inch originally fitted (185/65/15), I only bought alloys to go along with that.

Thanks for the replies.  My van has the 14inch as standard but would like to go 15 probably at most. Winter  traction in snow won’t be a problem as the standard wheels will be fitted during winter as they have been brilliant in snow every year.  No snow tyres, just the Original spec Michelin Agilis 51’s which have never let me down. Looking at a few options on the “ for sale “ adds, just need to be sure of proper fitment before buying.

I fitted some 185/65/15 onto mine, the alloys were from a Citroen xsara Picasso I believe. Sprayed them black so they suit my van more. Fit great, you just need longer wheel bolts and mine needed the more domed type bolts to sit down properly
