Does anyone know if you can get a 15 inch wheel over the front brakes of a Gti 180?

I'm considering an upgrade to the 206 DTurbo given the passenger sighting laps it does fully laden. So it's getting braided hoses and better pads, but I'm still curious about bigger brakes, and would like to keep the standard wheel size where possible.

If there's one thing I have to have right on a car, it's the brakes!

Pretty sure a good few of the 205 boys run these with 15's but not 100% sure.

I do however know that the 307 claipers / discs and pads from a 2 ltr are a direct replacement for the 205 parts and fit 15 inch wheels. They work very well on a 205, not sure about on your car?

Best off with gti-6 brakes I reckon. Straight fit, no fecking about, and a huge improvement over the shitty normal 306 one's. You may want to change the master cylinder too though...

Sorry fella's, should have made it more clear it's a 206 DTurbo. 266mm discs as standard.

Advice still the same?

Apparently the 283mm discs and calipers from a 206 GTi 180 will fit, and the 283mm discs and calipers from a 307 should fit, although the calipers are different to the GTi 180.

But I'm still wondering if 15's will go over them .... ;

The 307 calipers (if you decide to use them) will work with 15's :thumb: Not sure on the 180 brakes though.......

I'm 99% certain they will fit under 15's, as long as there is half decent spoke clearance. The discs on the 180 are the same size as on the 306 gti, but they are thicker, for better cooling. The 15's on the gti are dished,ie. spokes go inwards, so there isn't great clearance, but the brakes go under well enough, so I would expect 180 brakes to go under pretty easily also.
