Penta Alloys and 205/70/15 ET23

Post by keynsham1 »

I have just bought a set of Mercedes Penta alloys which are 7Jx15 and I am planning to fit 205/70/15 tyres. The offset is ET23. This size will keep the rolling radius pretty similar so no speedo problems. I have fitted longer studs at the back, bought 60 deg taper nuts, and bought longer bolts for the front. I have trial fitted the wheels on the front and the back with no tires fitted (on axle stands) and they fit but it looks like the rear is going to be very close to the sliding door when it opens.

Can anyone who has this set up confirm that it will all fit OK?

For those interested, I can confirm that Mercedes Penta 7jx15 ET23 fitted with 205/70R15 Falkan VAN01 tyres fit a T25 with 50mm lowering springs perfectly with no spacers and no rubbing!!

I would post some pictures but I have no idea how to!!!
