Hi,
I fitted 17" alloy wheels on my car from C4 without problems (6,5J ET26).

Hi, Is the BX havin and offset of 25 or 15?, I think its 25, I have fitted a set of ATS rims with 20 and they touch the fender when at lowest and cant be pushed,
I had a hydraulic leak and it sat totally down and even blistered the paint at the
area where the rubber lining sits in.. yr input please.

when i had the 17's they were PSA fitment on et15, fitted spot on except for slightly shot rear arm bearings meant when you reversed they caught the front edge of the fiberglass arch ;-)
it was generally assumed that the offset was in the ET15-22 range, Adding a spacer Reduced the Offset, hence why ford wheels and a 20mm spacer fit fine (ET45+20mm spacer =ET25)

My current ATS rims are 20 and are touching the fender when at lowest level.
