Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

That's a great colour for a Dobbie! If you got to drive one at least make it orange!

Helsingborg is a nice part of the world - do you still get the drunks coming back on the ferry from Helsingor?

It's all to do with the offset on the alloys, The punto's I think are ET38 ? mine I think are ET35 or is it the other way around ????

The alloys are DJ alloys , and were "designed to fit a doblo" ????? believe it or not

Holds the road very well, it's like driving a steam roller....
hi ashy,
i recently managed to get hold of a set of 17 claw fiat alloys, now down to the tyres
any other issues with the 205/45 so far ?
e.g hitting on the inside wheel arc on a full roll ?

Well then the 205/45's (Marshalls) are fine the 1.3 mulitjet dobbin holds the road very well. There is of course increased tyre noise... the one thing I have noticed is well, tyre drag... the dobbin isn't the fastest thing on the earth and lugging the extra rubber around does affect a "little" on the top end performance.... The orignal 204/40's went west (they were hard on the suspension you could feel every jar ) but the company who suppplied the faulty tyres have supplied a full set of 205/50's (yes these do fit) , they are in the garage stored waiting for the 205/45's to wear down... I Know I said that i thought 205/45's were the max but on consultation theres only 2.5-3% difference between the sizes ... but I think its dependant upon make of tyre and alloy and the combination of the two elements

I would recommmend going for 205/45's , but if your on good terms with your local tyre supplier/fitter then trying different variations won't take long

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Ah lads the wheels look great and they fill the arches but I thought they were only for Honda Civics

....maybe I'm just getting old.....

How do you reckon they're better than say a set of 15's surely you loose acceleration, increase noise and shake the guts out of the cabin? Those sidewalls don't flex at all....

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

I'm currently looking at getting 15's, as I can still get the Reinforced Extra Load tyres then to fit the rims whilst still gaining on style and width for extra grip.

Unless you can convince me that those 17" tyres will last longer than 15" tyres I'll be sticking to the 15's which I can get with locking nuts and tyres at the moment for £352.99. Here's an example.

The alloys are doing fine.... the only downside is you still have to be very careful when "kerb" parking.... , managed to get a few scrapes.... but the tyre wear seems very good ...

Re: Alloy Wheels for my Doblo

Glad they're still going well

I've been practising for ages, and I haven't touched a kerb with my steelies for ages now so I'm confident I can keep they alloys in good condition
