15 inch steel rims for T31 (2014)


hello everybody

Is it possible to use 15 inch steel (or alloy) rims for T31 2.0dCI ?

I am considering a second set of wheels with summer MT tires for summer trips to more wild locations
Now I have winter tires 235/60R17 - they fit perfectly without any rubbing

several reports suggest that max tire size (without considering legal aspects) is 235/65R17, which is approx 737 mm in diameter. I was thinking of using 15 inch rims with 235/75R15 tires, which gives the same overall diameter, but I am not sure if brake pads/etc will fit 15 inch rims. They were standard rims on T30, but not anymore on T31.

can anybody comment on this ?

warm regards
andy

Hi Andy,
It has been posted on here before that 15' rims will not clear the front brake calipers.
So your options are 16', 17' or 18' rims.

I can't imagine why you would want to fit 15" wheels unless you have already got them, or they are really cheap.

Re:


As others have said, 16" is the smallest rim you can get (I made the mistake of buying 15".

The largest tyre size is 235/70/16

Hi,
Will the 235/70/16 fit in the spare wheel well?

Thanks.
