Lupo wheel fitment


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon,

First time poster here since buying my Lupo.

I am looking for advice on alloy wheel fitment. So my lupo needs 3 tyres replacing but instead of replacing them I have a set of 15 inch alloy wheels with tyres on that have only been driven 200 miles maximum. 

The alloys I have are of a mk3 golf vr6 (I have 4x100 to 5x100 adapters) so they will fit interms of pcd and centre bore as far as I'm aware. The tyre size on them are 195/45/15 and the car is on coilovers.

So with the 195 45 15 tyres and the alloy specs are 6.5Jx15 ET43.

Two questions I have are: 

Will they fit?

Will there be a clearance issue in the arches?


I look forward to your replys and expertise 

Kind regards



Ps. I have attached a picture of the very same alloy wheels and my car.

Wheel adaptors really eat up space pushing the rims out - suspect they will catch the arches

You can confirm this by looking at willtheyfit.com find the wheel sizes and offset then add width of adapter.

You may be better off selling the stuff you have - adaptors are not cheap and the Mk3 BBS's should sell well too - putting the money towards tyres on the current rims.
