I'm getting a 2012 high up , I still have my 18s from my mini cooper . They are 7j x 18 et42 oz wheels

4x100 i believe 215.35 tyres

Will these work with the up . I've seen 17s on up but not 18s. I know my 7x18 are a narrow width ..

Anyone think these will fit straight on

Be great if so as i have them lying about ..

Thanks

Hi there,

There are 3 wheels approved by VW for MY2012 Up!s, with 4 tyre options:
  • 5J x 14 ET35 (165/70 R 14 81T or 175/65 R 14 82T)
  • 5.5J x 15 ET41 (185/55 R 15 82T)
  • 6J x 16 ET43 (185/50 R 16 81T)
All are 4x100. The High Up! has alloys as standard, but I'm not sure if they're 15" or 16". I have seen a non-approved option for 17" wheels here (https://www.wheel-size.com/size/volkswagen/up/2012/), but the first sign of 18" ones (possibly) being acceptable is from MY2014 (which can come with 17" wheels; none of the approved options are 18"). Based on that info, I'd have thought your Mini's wheels would not work on your Up!, but I have found the following calculator which would let you enter the exact details of your car and wheels and may come up with potential alternatives: https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/

Hope this helps!
