17 inch wheels on a 1.5?

Anyone got any advice on fitting 17 inch wheels onto a mk4 1.5 engine? they have 16 inch as standard. most adverts advise to only fit 17 inch wheels onto 2.0L but wondered if anyone has done this on a 1.5

Fit fine. No issues at all.

Can 18inch wheel go on to or they to big and best sticking with 17inch

You could go 18’s I guess, tyres become a bit rubber bandish! Cosmetically and practically the rubber band thing isn’t for me! But everyone is different. :+1: Not sure what your wheel choice would be like in an 18 too! :man_shrugging:

We use a Rota 17x7.5 on the race cars with an MRF ZTR tyre, they work for us! :ok_hand:

I’ve always liked the the 17" Recaro alloy shame they didn’t make them a tad wider and with more offset! They do really suit the car, have you bought these then or just looking at them?

There up for £500 but I just don’t know what to do yet

this is my car just got it a week ago
