    I ordered a set of wheels and tyre's for my 182 but instead of 205/45 R16 83V they sent 195/50 R15 82V . My car will never be on a track just used as a daily drive so would this size ok . Are there any benefits or negatives in doing this . Sorry to be a numptey on this but have never changed wheels and tyre's to a different size before . They also want me to lose £200 if i send them back as the wheel only comes in 15in and i should have noticed .

    err.. functionality, yes the will work.

    But most folk drop to 15 for winter wheels or track tyres.

    What did you order? Speedlines?

    I preferred the ride of mine on the 15's rode the bumps better.

    Yes speedline 675 . Having a nightmare with the new discs and pads and rear disc washer . Front pads won't fit with the shims in place and the rear caliper won't line up to bolt together with the disc washer on .

    Disc washer the right way around?

    Did the old Ines defo come away on the disc.

    Have to admit brake service changes are one of the few things I found easy on my clios.

    All sorted took shims off front pads fit perfect . The rear pads are on and working caliper pistons needed a clean and a bit of grease . Thanks for the replies and help .
