GTi boots - 1.9 wheels on 1.6?

Recommended Posts

danj.pdx

I'm guessing this is a basic question that's been asked and answered over the past few decades. I couldn't find a definitive answer on-line. I'm in the US and new to the 205 world.

 

I recently bought a stock 19921.6 GTi with standard 14" ET Pepperpot wheels and 185/55 street tires. I'm wanting to install a set of track tires on 15" ET 19 1.9 GTi wheels.  

 

Will there be any concerns with clearance or spacers needed if I mount 185 or 195 width 55 or 50 series tires on the 1.9 wheels?

 

Thanks in advance,

Dan.

185/55/15 and 195/50/15 tyres will work fine. 195/55/15 may rub the bumper but you may get away with it. 185/50/15 isn't a common size.
