  1. Fifteen52 Snowflakes

    15x8j 4x100 ET30 57.1 Centre bore (VW) 165/50 Nankang NS-2 all evenly worn with 5-6mm left Great set of wheels only ran for about a year in total and always removed for winter. The wheels have been in storage in my garage for a few years now and unfortunately the have suffered some surface corrosion as moisture has gotten under the lacquer. One seems to be virtually free of corrosion and one is worse than the others. They're still bright on the areas which aren't corroded. The photos aren't great but I have tried to show the corrosion at its worst so there are no surprises when viewing. As you can imagine I am gutted. That being said they are a great set of true wheels with no kerb marks at all and a good set of tyres, they haven't been on a car that long and I bought them new direct from Fifteen52. Would be great for anyone wishing to invest a bit of time in referring them. Look great on a Lupo/Arosa, here they are on my Arosa with a 15mm spacer on the rear. Asking £350 ono, Collection from Darlington, North East. Text 07859 433407 Thanks For Looking.

But what size alloys should I be looking for ?? looking for a slight tyre stretch. in 14" whats the ET AND J size I need and tyre size ? and 15" ET and J size? and tyre size? Thanks all in advance I hope I've posted in the right section
  4. Lupo 1.4 set of 4 original Lupo steel wheels required for new drivers car insurance. Will collect near London. Please help me!
  5. Hello all. Let's start from the very beginning. So I bought my Lupo GTI just under 3 years ago now - 28th June 2014 to be precise. I originally bought the car with every intention of making it a road going show car, after attending various local/nationwide shows with a select group of friends. The level of attention to detail of some of these cars was second to none and it was really quite inspiring to see first hand for myself. Growing up in the North West of England (Wigan) I was lucky to be exposed to a large variety of different automotive cultures. Be it everything from Japanese, German, VAG to Classic, High Performance and Concourse show cars. I started driving early 2012 and despite much controversy my first car was a 1.2 Vauxhall Corsa D (Unlimited Edition) . However after 2 years of ownership in 2014 I decided it was time for a change. I had recently gained employment at Jaguar Land Rover - Halewood and my insurance started to dip a little. It was then I set out on the hunt for a car to tick a few boxes. I wanted something fun, nimble, fast but at the same time something that wasn't going to break the bank insurance/fuel wise. After weeks of what seemed like endless searching I fell in love with a Black Lupo GTI I had found on AutoTrader. The owner, a 56 year old lady from Rugby, Warwickshire. The car itself was absolutely perfect (Black, 6 Speed, Low mileage 64K, FSH, Completely standard and unmolested). It was everything I was looking for.
  6. Lupo 4x100 to 5x108 adapters?

    New member here, hiiiiii. Basically, I've been doing huge amounts of research and found the perfect set of wheels in terms of offset, look, width, etc., but they're Volvo, 5x108 jobbies. I've been told that it'd be impossible to get adaptors to make it happen from a 4x100. 1 ) is that right? Should I let the dream die? 2 ) could I not get the adapters made? Willing to pay a fair amount but obviously nothing ludicrous. Open to suggestions. 3 ) is there any other way I can make them fit? Please help! Thanks
  7. I just bought some "BBS" alloys and the centre bore won't sit on the hub at all. Is there a way around his? Can I resize the alloys or even put a spacer in place?
  8. 15x8 with et of 25

    Hi there guys, first day on the forum! Looking at a set of ronal/Schmidt copies on eBay at the moment called Stuttgart st4's, love the look but worried about the fit, they are et25 but they're 8j, will they poke like crazy? Anyone else running this size? Or better still, this wheel! Jesse
  9. New wheels

    So I've got a 1998 Seat Arosa, I want to lower it by 40-50mm, and put some nicer wheels on it as it's currently on the steels.. I'd like them to be a little wider than stock, to fill out the arches a little. Can anyone give me an ideal wheel specification for me? Full details if possible, not great with this kind of stuff
  10. 15x7, ET30 alloys

    15x7 alloys, must be ET30, with or without tyres May consider 8's, but dont want to have to roll the arches Rota RB's would be great! But whatever comes up
  11. Straight set of BBS looking alloys. If they are for a show car then they will need a referb. They were painted and not powder coated hence why the paint has come away with any little knock. There are screw holes to put fake bolts into them to make them look more of a split rim but I never bothered. The tyres are just over a year old with about 600 miles on them. Prefer local pick up but will travel a little to help the buyer. Deposit required to secure sale. £280
  12. For sale Bbs rw 001 4x100 15x7 et36 These are a very rare set of wheels As far as i know only like 3 or 4 sets of the 15 inch 4x100 Centre bore is 57.1 No swaps just cash sale These have been prepared for painting So ready for refurb £375 ono
  13. Seat Arosa 1.0 BREAKING

    Might only be a short stay. Had my little go kart Arosa 1.0 for 2 years now, and it has served well and been fun but alas just died.

Budget coilies TA iirc, which are still good, also G60 15" or whatever you wanna call em steelies. Heko wind deflectors going and the interior whilst stained has no rips. Good doors & bonnet. Let me know if any one needs owt.

  16. Hi all, Had my GTI for a few years now but never got around to sorting this issue out, its not had any mods to it standard everywhere. The rear wheels rub on the inside of the wells, due to the less than great cornering offered on stock i can go through rear tires quite quickly. Does anyone know what my different options are and how it would help? I've come across rolling the arches but I can't see how that would help the rubbing on the inside? Any help appreciated.

  23. Wheel problems!

    So I've put some borbet type A's on my loop and while I'm waiting for my new wheel studs to arrive I just used the ones from the steel wheels, not good i know, but the wheel knock like mad under cornering and I was wondering if its because of the studs?

  25. fitment

    Hi everyone, Had my lupo for a couple months now and i'm looking to get some alloys and lower it but need some advice. I would prefer 15" wheels but don't know the widest I can get away with and offset. Also what width tyres would I need and what profile? I'm looking at getting some banded steels for it. Also undecided on weather to go for springs or coilovers to lower it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
