WANTED: Brembo calipers and starfish alloys.....

Post by hullcitytilidie »

........I've just added to my collection and bought a rather nice, low miles 2003 Exec estate. I am hoping to find and fit a set of alloys suitable for the estate with regard to fitting Brembo front callipers. If anyone knows of suitable parts, or has some for sale at a fair price, I would appreciate a PM. Best regards Geoff.

Geoff,

I can't help with the calipers but there's quite a few listed on Facebook Peugeot pages

Do you want starfish ?

I have a set of 17" Peugeot Challengers in good condition with good Kumho tyres all round
with the necessary hubcentric spacers & bolts I'd be interested in selling (these are on my estate)

I also have a very nice set of 8.5" x 18" Azev E's with new Avon ZZ5's all round & again the necessary
hubcentric spacers & bolts that I want to sell. (these came off my coupe)

My main interest is improving the braking distance as I feel the standard car is a bit wanting in that department? I was looking at the starfish 15" alloys only because they seem to be compatible with Brembo. Would either of your alloys suit the fitting of Brembo to an estate? My knowledge of these things is in the early learning stage! :D

Hi Geoff.
Any standard 406 Coupe wheels will fit ( must be 16" or larger due to the larger Brembos caliper ) so the Starfish is a straight fit. However, I did fit Starfish on my old executive estate and I didn't like them - I mean I like the wheels but I didn't think they suited....

Any other Peugeot 4 stud wheels would need spacers ( newer models have a different offset so would hit the calipers )

You need alloys that are 16" with an ET of 12 to be a direct fit - the Challenger alloys look good on the estate but need suitable spacers, about 25mm I think.

My favourites are the Licancubar alloys but still too expensive for me.. :(

Thank you for that info Kelv, it is just what I wanted - I won't feel as stupid when I go looking now! Is there a preferred wheel and tyre size with regard to filling the arches and improving ride or handling? Any Coupe wheels names that would avoid the need for spacers? Much appreciated - Geoff.

The Coupe only came with 4 types of wheel...

Starfish - in both 15" and 16"
Nautilus
Tacoma ( not an option on UK models :( )
Hoggar

The Hoggars on the Coupe are different to the Hoggars on the later non-coupes - so if you want to avoid using spacers then you need Coupe Hoggars.

Also, you will need Brembo discs and front brake pipes as they are also different to the standard Lucas set up...

Many thanks for all of that Kelv, you've given me much to research. I'm not so bothered in the looks department and have a lead on a set of 16" starfish which are in very good condition so I'll see where that goes. They were taken from a V6 coupe and also have decent tyres on so they might be worth putting on until I get all the Brembo parts? Off to check on the others you mention now, will let you know what I end up with. Regards Geoff.
