Advice requested on Wheel selection


Recommended Posts

I would appreciate some expert help with wheel & tyre sizing for my 06 plate TD4.

I have been looking for a cost effective (cheap) set of secondhand wheels for my Hipposaurus to fit some winter tyres.

My current alloys are 16" fitted with 215/65 R16 tyres. I can find 16" alloys no problem and understand the need for wheel spacers if they come off an early model TD4. But, none local to Cheltenham or cheap enough.

So, i thought steel wheels, even if they need some dressing up. All I can find are 15" or 17", both of which I assume would affect the speedo reading, but seem readily available for freelanders.

What do people do? fit 15" rims with larger profile tyres, or 17" with standard profiles and ignore the difference.

Any advice gratefully received - Thanks - Jonners.
