Hi

108 Allure coming soon. I want to stick on some 14" steels and winter tyres - it will be an awesome snow car and good fun to nip round stuck 4x4s on summer tyres here in Yorkshire!

Anyonw know if the wheels same spec as a 107 eg: 4 x 100.00 x 54.00 ET: 39.00?

Cheers

It would make sense but most online wheels and tyres sites only list the 107 as the 108 is too new. My dealer hasn't yet responded with details of the 107 vs 108 wheels.
So I was looking here if anyone could definitely state the older 107 and new 108 wheels are the same size, offset, width etc.

cheers

same dilema here, have 8x 13" steel 107 wheels with Goodyear Ultra grip 8's on.

decided im going to get a second set of 14" steels and new ultragrips for my top rather than fit the 13" 107 wheels even if the pcd is the same

Also looking forward to seeing pictures of how it looks once installed, keep us posted!
Oh and along with the ride quality of them, as that also matters.

My parts department said no, they weren't, so I ordered some 14" steels from them and Ts850 winter contis from my tyres. But not needed yet as 20 degrees in Yorkshire today!

good thing to do, best to save them for when they are really required or when it comes close enough to that.

i know that if you run winter tires in conditions that are too warm for it, it can cause it to wear out faster... apparently.

problem I have run into is no one is making 165/60/15 winter tyres to fit the active/allure/feline oem wheels

you need to go up one section to 165/65/15 which should be ok on the road except the speedo will be about 2.5% out ( so prob read spot on..!)

you can always go up in size with the width and height of tire, even going up or down in diameter might be good for a long term approach.

that is quite a lot, at least through your experience they have held up well. do they give off a lot of noise or are they more along the lines of a quiter winter tire?

no complaints with the Goodyear Ultra Grip 8, my 107 is a 2-tronic with paddles and I have had new front disks and pad and tires are still like new


Stunning tyres, I find them better in the summer than the [email protected] oem conti eco's , not noticeable nosier and poss 2mpg worse.

Dropped my 165/65/15's to Peugeot this morn to have fitted to my 108top thats on its way to the dealer :)

Put it this way I passed a freelander last year in the deep snow that was stuck and can always get out of muddy carparks :)

I thought our little cars might perform OK in the snow and ice. Do you think we should all look at winter tyres or do you live somewhere particularly snowy?

I have a 7am commute from **** with a road the never gets gritted.

Have passed several stuck 'soft roaders' in my current 107 with Goodyear Ultragrip 8's and driven out of mud that has defeated my mates freelander.

I grew up with winter tyres and would not be with out them.

The awful conti eco crap the factory fit are not the best dry/wet/winter as they are designed for minimum rolling resistance to get you free tax via lower emissions

Picking up my 108 at 3 today , winter tyres fitted, and bobble hat ready to i can have the roof open :)
