Hi, I usually run winter wheels/tyres on my cars, so just looking into them nice and early, from searching I gather 15" wheels will not fit a 2008 GP VTR+? If anyone's got 15" wheels fitted it would be nice to know, tyres are a fair bit cheaper than 16's, cheers.

15" wheels may not clear the brake calipers

If you PM me your VIN, I might be able to see which size steel wheels can be fitted to your car. As it stands, "C4 GP 1.6VTi VTR+" isn't enough.

I have a spare wheel 15" under the car. I have tried to fit it on the front just to be prepared and it just fits over the brake caliper, but just. I have not driven it.

Thanks for the VIN.

It's 16" wheels (item 2) for winter tyres for your car.

The 15" winter steel wheels (item 1) are blanked out from the generic image.



Your car wasn't supplied with a spare, so there is no indication of its size.

Thanks for the reply, apologies for it taking me so long to reply! Had a few urgent things to sort out on the other car, Looks like I'm stuck with 16's then, be interesting to see if 15's with some small spacers on would clear the calipers.
