sierra and mondeo have the wrong offset and spacers will be needed to run theses wheels, sorry.

contact a few wheel suppliers to see whats available in the steel wheel range.

thanks for the help mate..(and on previous posts)

i am going for peugeot 406 15inch steels, the stud pattern is the same offset not far off the only major difference is the bore size is bigger, so i,ll get some spigot rings off ebay, or get some made up at a machine shop

Me , for example, prefer to use wheels of the same manufacturer! Razz
