An offset of 38 fits on mine, but will rub unless you stiffen the suspension for back passengers.

THREAD BE ALIVE!!

I was looking for this post earlier because I'm looking for wheels, and realised it was never made sticky.

Can this be done, I deem it worthy as many people have asked this question before...

:thumbs:

Can someone confirm whether the bolts are 12x1.25 or 12x1.5?

A search of ebay for 107, c1 or aygo wheel bolts all return results with 12x1.5.

Just scrolling through this thread. Offset is useless as a guide unless you also mention the width of your wheel (also known as the J size)

I am looking for some wider wheels and wondering whether 7J will go without rubbing?
Or maybe i'll stick with some skinny wheels and get a low offset. I just want the wheels to come closer to the face of the arches.

Thing is, practically everyone puts the same width tyre on them so the width of the wheel doesn't matter quite as much. Most are 6.5 or 7j though I think.
I've got 195s on a 7j with a 20 offset (they stick 49.2 mm further out that stock) which kiinda pokes, and it rubs but only with passengers in the back. For normal driving it's absolutely fine (and sticks to the road like glue).
But if you want to carry passengers or to lower it, 35 or 38 really is the limit of how low the offset should be if you want rub-free driving, which means the wheels stick about 30mm further out than stock.

I'm assuming stock steelies are 38 offset, which they have no reason to be. Anyone actually measured?
But I know it's close as I measured inside clearance when I fitted my wheels.

Offset requirement is determined by the steering/suspension geometry and deviating too far from standerd risks issues with torque-steer etc.
