Wheels !
Looking for new wheels for the lupo and I'm finding myself looking at standard wheels from other cars that I think would look good :/

yes/no Or just do it ?

RE: Wheels !
What sort of things are you thinking?

Porsche wheels are the obvious example of fitting one manufacturers wheels to another and that works.

How much work are you wanting? What stud pattern is the lupo?

4x100 Ollie.

If you do, use something different.

Shogun wheels?

RE: Wheels !
It's a fairly straight forward as the fitment is the sane apart from 1mm on the bore

RE: Wheels !
Bore shouldn't be a problem, any machine shop should be able to do it. Nel has a lathe, but I don't know if it's big enough.

RE: Wheels !
Think fully outside the box..

I can imagine its hard to innovate in this world nowadays...

Maybe something brand new (OEM wheel wise) as that will be less likely to have been done..

@Spener.. shogun wheels... nice Icon_smile
