    The 206/307 wheels have a different offset from the 306, that is why they are catching, it is possible to get them to fit using wheel spacers but then they may protrude outside the arches so choose spacers correctly.

    I don't think you would get a 206 drum to fit a 306, I can't remember exact dimensions but it would make a lot more sense to use the spacers.

    Unfortunately spacers are trial and error, the exact sizes all depend on tyre size as well as offset, but rule of thumb is 5-8mm of clearance from the tyre touching anything,

    The fronts may not need spacing, offer them up to the hubs making sure there's no contact to the calipers, if no contact tighten, then turn front wheels full lock to full lock, making sure there's no inner or outer wheel arch rub, then for the next few days keep looking for odd tyre wear.

    yes is a high ET value. look at the original wheel for the right ET43 or ET35 something like that.
