Got KW coilovers and new 17" RS style chrome wheels on my UP!. Wheels are 17x7" ET27 front and 17x7" ET25 rear. Wheels are wrapped in 165/40/17 tyres. I removed the rear "UP!" and "Bluemotion" logo and painted the VW emblem black. I have a Windshildwiper-delete planned and ordered a glass "filler" from gecleant.de .. That's about it :)

All that chrome would do my nut in
, like the wheels but not the chrome, the car looks great with these style of rims.

Are you running spacers at all with these wheels?

Thanks


Yeah I'm running a 8mm spacer front and 10mm rear. Wheels are 17x7" ET35 without spacers.

I might have some other wheels going on it, so I'll wait and see what I decide :)

Do you have any issues with tyre rub? Awesome looking UP btw

No rubbing. The tyres are only 165 wide, so plenty of room even at full turns.

Hello.

I am currently thinking of buying this up
http://www.bilbasen.dk/brugt/bil/vw/up/10-75-high-up/2220778

Now all i can think off to make it extra crisp is 17" alloy wheels, and lowering it.

My imagination only goes so far, so it is great to se other have tried things that look awesome.

so i hope you can answer these 2 questions.
1. how many mm have you lowered it?
2. That is the exact name/model of your alloy wheels, since the chrome look will go perfect with the up i am looking at, since it's got chrome side mirrors and chrome list along the side of the car.

Hi.. My Up! has a KW coilover suspension. I'm not sure about the total amount of lowering. I just turned it down until I achieved the stance I wanted. In the rear I removed the adjuster so I'm only running the KW coil, to get it that low. Plenty of room left to turn down the front even more than it is now.

I got the 17" wheels in the States.. I can get you a brand new set just like them if you want. shoot me an email [email protected]
