Default 14" wheels for hillclimbing/trackday

i keep getting stuck on this so i need to find a solution

i run a 15" set of alloys for road driving (195/50r15) but i need to run a diffrent size set for sprints and hillclimbs a smaller set is what i need to reduce my overall gearing more (already on 3.9 diff)

13" rims would be ideal as loads of race tyres are about in 13"s but this is a no no with rear upright dimentions

so 14" low pro race tyres are availble but rims need to be steel to clear, this is no issue as steels are cheap and plentyful

my question whats has 14" steel rims at least around 6.5j wide with 108x4pcd to fit a ford hub and have an offset a bit more central than the sierra ones

ford or pegeot wheels spring to mind but could anyone point me to a good model to find somthing?

i did have wellers in mind but thease are rare and expensive secondhand now?

Some pug 106 rallye had 14 x 6.0 ET 24 - 27 Citroen C5 had 15x6.5 steel, ET 27. What's wrong with s/h 14 x 6.5 alloys ?

Careful with Peugeot wheel: same PCD, but centre bore diameter is different (Peugeot: 65.1mm, Ford: 63.4mm), so you'll need adaptor rings. I know people think that the wheel is self-centred thanks to the conical nuts, and the central bore does not need to fit perfectly, but it is not always true, I know it from experience. And most of 4-holes Peugeot wheels don't have conical seats for the bolts, they use flat seat bolts/nuts.

But yes, Peugeot 106/205/306/etc. 14'' wheels have a smaller ET (if it is what you mean by "have an offset a bit more central than the sierra ones"), so the wheels will be more "out" of the car than Ford 14'' wheels.

Peugeot 106/205/306/etc.: ET 18mm,
Ford Sierra: ET 41mm.

List of all cars with 4x108 PCD and 18mm ET (offset):

Hope this can help

14" alloys dont clear the rear uprights lower bolt and 14" steels only just clear (sierra ofset ones)

looking at availble motorsport tyres in 14 i could actualy go a bit narrower in rim and pug rallye are already on my list funny enough

I have Westfield 5 spoke alloys and 14" x 6j ET 38 and they easily clear the rear hubs,
