Default 106 15inch alloys and tyres please help!

I've just bought some TSW 15 inch alloys and fitted 195/50/15 Uni-Royals to them. However they do not fit.

Was wondering if anyone knew what size spacers and length of bolts I need or possibly even some different size tyres.

My car is 106 1.1 independence

Thanks!

Are they catching ?? My youngest just fitted a set of 15's to his 106 and had to put spacers on. He out atm but will check what spacers he needed when he gets in.
Oh and a picture of the wheel and where its catching would probably help.

It's catching on the fuel intake pipe (from cap to fuel tank) on the rear.

On the front it was catching on the entire suspension strut.

Also did he need extended wheel nuts at all?

What is the width of the wheel and the offset (ET)?

If in doubt post the numbers which are stamped into the alloy.

That should be your starting point to see if spacers will solve the problem.

what you need to look for is something similar to this somewhere on the wheel
15x6.50 4x100 ET: 40 and I think the ET is the offset

this explains what is required http://www.tyresizecalculator.com/wheels/wheel-markings

If that was the only place catching then it could have been the rear beam bearings failing causing camber.......

This would however suggest that the offset is wrong.
I'm going to auume its a 4 stud 106 and i would then guess that the alloys were actually orignally intended for a ford - the offset would be too high (moves wheels in) and tehrefore catchng on strut and filler/rear inner arch.

If this is the cae then you are going to ned spacers in the region of 20mm to make it right - obviously hubcentric either bolt on or blt through with longer bolts.

Find the ET marking on the wheels and this should help confirm matters.

Where abouts on the wheel are these markings? They aren't engraved in the back (unless I'm blind) I have tyres on them and could be on there but I've just had them sprayed so I think he went over them
