Hello Everyone, I'm working my ass off at the mo and hopefully soon i will be able to afford an Up!. I'm into modifications and so if i got one i would not keep it standard for long. I was wondering if anyone knew of any alloys similar to the MTechnica Turbos, like in the picture attached (which are 16 x 8.5, 4 x 100, +15 offset) as I have seen similar wheels but different brands, but can't find where to purchase any from.

I would be interested in either 16 or 17 inch as when I lower the suspension, i still want the car to be practical, and not scrape over every speed bump. I just want to have less of a wheel arch gap.

Also, does anyone know if the wheels would fit straight on, or would i need to mess around with it all to get them to fit

Thanks for any help! x

Ps, Im from the UK.

After a bit of thinking I think that the MTechica or imilar looking alloys would only look good in 15" or if the car was sat SUPER low.. instead i Have seen some rotiforms which are 17 x 8 ( As seen on DaveC's Up) does anyone know if these would fit straight on or cause any rubbing?

Your a huge inspiration for me when it comes to modding the UP haha, I messaged you a couple times on Instagram about it yesterday I thinks it was. It's just when I saw those wheels I instantly fell in love and have never seen any better. Like I said in my first post I like the MTechica looking wheels too but I think they would only look good in 15" and that would set me too low for practicality:/. So eventually I think I'd get the rotiforms but maybe a bigger tyre with less of a stretch, but I'd have to get advice on that. I'm working so hard at the mo trying to save up so I can buy one haha. Which model of UP is yours? (Apologies for the essay)

No worries, and thanks again.
The stretch has never caused me an issue, just rides hard with higher pressures.
Mine is a move up ‘�
