Default 307 04 2.0L sw Steel to Alloy Rims

I have got some second hand alloy wheels for my 307. They are 16" rims and the steel ones I'm replacing are 15".
I'm not sure if I will need different wheel bolts for the alloys
I have already fitted the alloy wheels and tightened to 90mn with the wheel bolts used for the steel rims and took on short test drive and all seems fine but really would appreciate if any one could clarify Many thanks

You need specific wheel bolts for peugeot alloy wheels

Hi.....I would have a look at how much thread is showing if you put a bolt in the steel wheel before fitting then compere it while putting it in one of the alloy wheels,I think they will be too short for alloy wheels..also compere the bolt seat in both wheels,the alloy one may be flat and the steel concave...Check carefully..

Steel wheel bolts will wreck your wheels IF they are original peugeot wheels they need proper peugeot citroen bolts

If they are aftermarket wheels then the steel wheel bolts are fine.

My wife's 307 has alloy wheels but a steel spare. This is how it was delivered new. I have fitted the spare a couple of times after punctures, the wheel bolted right up with the same bolts used for the alloy wheel.

They do but the steel mounts on the taper on the bolt the alloys mount on the shoulder and washer on the bolt

Peugeot original alloys need peugeot alloy bolts but peugeot alloy wheel bolts can indeed be used with steel wheels as they are designed to fit both so that they can use a steel spare as they are cheaper !

If the OP has peugeot original alloys he MUST use alloy bolts simple as that.

No such thing as 'alloy' bolts (other than that all (AFAIK) Peugeot OEM alloy rims all use a flat shoulder. aftermarket alloy rims might use a sherical (rounded) shoulder/seat or conical (angled)

Spherical on top, conical below:

WRONG peugeot alloy bolts are peugeot specific IE the flat shoulder you mention i sell loads of them to people replacing their crap lockers !

The bolts in your pic are fine for AFTERMARKET alloys not original peugeot or citroen alloys
