Hello to all,

I have an allure 2019 1.6 PURETECH TURBO 180 CP EAT8 with
wheels 18" LOS ANGELES (Shiny Haria Grey) with Conti M+S and grip control.

Those tires, looks more for summer than winter for me. Do you have any idea if I can use CHICAGO 17" without to affect the grip control efficiency?
What model do you suggest / own, other than Peugeot models? Winter tires too. I need mostly from people that own those wheels and tires.
Thanks!

If you got them from the factory then they are Continental LX2 tyres, they are Summer tyres, and not Winter or All Season tyres. They have a thread pattern which is adapted for some off road driving (they are produced for SUV range of vehicles). But still, they are Summer tyres, even though they carry the M+S mark it does not mean they are winter or all season tyres.

I have the same on my car with 18" Los Angeles Wheel and Grip Control.
I also have 17" Alloys with Michelin Alpin 5 tyres, also from the factory.

You will have no problems with Grip Control no matter which tyres you use, it does not make any difference at all.

I always wondered why Peugeot offered Grip Control only with Los Angeles rims. Here in Greece all 3008 have Grip Control on them, thus all of us have the same rims. This bugs me, because I would like to have in my GT something that will distinguish it more than GT line other than the badge :(

It is because they claim that the GripControl system is optimised to work with the Continental LX2 tyres which come with the 18" wheels.
The tyres themselves are not "pure" summer tyres, if you look at the thread pattern you will see that it is some sort of a "all rounder" summer tyre.
Meaning that you can do some limited offroading with them and not get stuck on grass or sand surfaces, because of this it has the M+S mark.

This thread pattern, in combination with GripControl modes, allowes the car to achieve better offroad capability than for example with normal summer tyres.

It is important to say that GripControl will work with any tyres, just perhaps not as good if for example high performance summer tyres are used instead of the Conti LX2 tyres (or their equivalent).

This is clear, but I suppose for winter (here we have real winter :)), those tires is nasty. So , I need winter tires and I want 17" alloy wheels.
Ideea is, to do not have problem with calipers or brake discs when mount 17 inch wheels. But, been sell by dealers for winter, I suppose is ok.

As long as you use wheels with this dimensions you will not have any problems.

Dimensions: 7.0 J 17 CH5-42

In my registration papers all three wheels are registered:
215/65 17"
225/55 18"
235/50 19".
