It may be a generic/library pic but the wheel shown is a 5 bolt wheel and Up!’s are 4 bolt.Hi all,
Apologies for another thread re winter wheels/tyres!
We’re due to take delivery of my wife’s Up Gti at the end of November (very excited) & I’d like to get winters on it straight away, I’d like the official Merano wheels but buying the car has already depleted our reserves so I’ve been hunting around & seen these on mytyres, anyone have any thoughts on them?
I can get the wheel/tyre package for roughly the same price as just the Merano wheels without rubber.

Also insurance companies vary as to their reaction to Winter tyres/wheels, some charge nothing and just note the change, others charge a minimal change fee, some are upset by non standard non original wheels from another manufacturer as for them a replacement could be more expensive.
There are options other than the VW dealer oem option. One of the best cost effective Winter wheel options I’ve seen on here is a repurposed set of old VW steel wheels, my memory says Scirocco but the forum points towards Corrado.
