    I’ve got a 200 currently on 17” ultraleggera with Nankang Ns2r tyres and I know come winter they ain’t gonna agree with snow in the hills of Oldham. Can anyone tell me if any steel wheels from other Renaults can fit on and clear the caliper? I read that the laguna’s can but I’ve not seen any definitive evidence. I’d rather buy a set of steels than some dirt cheap alloys as I don’t have the original wheels to chuck a set of winters on.

    Well the logic would be that a cheap set of alloys would always have resale value were as steel wheels with snow tyres no matter how good the tyres are not that appealing. The steel spare wheel from a grand scenic and vel satis fit the car but they would be regarded as a space saver the Laguna Silverstone wheels I think are an option. Why not pay the £5 membership and have more access to the forum. See this post

    Just looked up some prices on eBay and they’re going for reasonable money and are quite common. Looks like they are the best call. Cheers for pointing me in the right direction. I think I’ll end up paying for membership as I can see myself being on here often.

    thought about snow socks for emergencies? I’m from Oldham, never had that much of an issue. Wouldn’t bother driving it if was that bad.

    I could consider snow socks. Not teaching you to suck eggs but the ns2r tyres are semi slicks and I’ve personally never drove with them in snow yet so I might just be overreacting to how bad I’m imagining them being. I’m only after a set of winters as the last thing I want is to set off for work and find out I can barely move or worse meet a car or lamp post. My entry to the work car park is a massive steep slope as well haha. If anyone has or have had these tyres your own experience with them would be appreciated.

    Wasn’t intended to come across rude or anything. Yeah could imagine that they would be terrible. I’m on uni royal rainsport 3s at the moment, set off 4 were 250 delivered from demon tweeks maybe that’s an option ‍♂️

    I went all of last winter with a set of AD08r on - never again. I’m going to go for a set of Uniroyal Rainsport 3 this time around and pop them on to a spare set of wheels I have.

    As Turkie says, the Laguna Silverstone wheels are a good shout.

    No worries mate haha. I just didn’t want to sound like I was stating the obvious about them being semi’s. My works tyre supplier can get uni royals so they could be a good shout. Decent tyres for the price.

    Funnily enough my spare wheels will have uni rainsport 3 on, and my cup rims have Yoko neova ad-08’s on also Having experienced hitting standing water on a bend on the yokes :oops: I knew what they’d be like in snow! Might as well be slicks :thumb:

    Liquid yellow with gold wheels? Don’t think I’ve seen that combination before haha. Looks sweet as a nut on the blue though.

    iirc, i've read that the steel wheels from a mk4 renault espace fit over the front calipers. long time ago though, so absolutely no idea where i've read it.

    here's a pic i found years ago ...

    I used a Renault Val Satis spare wheel they are 7" x 17" CH50 so it would be like using 18mm spacers on the car the Laguna wheel is the same.
