What are the smallest wheels that can one fit on MG ZS with standard brakes - 15´´ ? I know that in my papers to my cars are smallest 16´´. Thanks for reply

for track, smaller wheels lowers the gearing.
there are 15s that fit over 180 brakes but 'fraid I don't know what they are called :-(
I've seen them on Ewart Kitson's race car - a 120 with 180 brakes.

kev had some 15's for his zs 180 at pod but cant remember which ones sorry.
you need a high clearance wheel like a oz superleggera or team dynamics pro race i should think.

Ewert got his from AK Motorsport as far as I can remember, they have probably still got some as they had a lot of them.

I wanted 15´´ for winter time (snow, ice in my country) , they are cheaper than 16´´ and also tyres are cheaper for 15 rims, so I will save maybe round 120euros (100pounds for 4 rims+tyres). In the future, I will use this car as a hill amateur racing car (2-3 years). I measured that inner diameter should be 470 mm so I have to find some I you say that there are few on market. Thanx

15" Rover 200/400 steel wheels fit over 180 calipers, ideal for fitting winter tyres.
