Got mini wheels for mine for shows and stuff

used a drill and file to corect the pcd as their half a mm out in each hole, 4x102 instead of 4x100, would recommend spigot rings though to make them more solid if you do this or go the whole way and do spigot rings and wobble bolts, its just expensive that way

That's what mine are so should be fine although theirs two types the normal mini lites which have a positive et and so won't stick out the arches or the deep dish ones like mine which are the same but have practically zero et so stick out the arches bout an inch so you'd need spats to cover them or pull the arches

all depends on the et really as that is what determines how much dish you have away from the hub and thats where it'll catch, on mine i had to put plastic spats on and the rears still were outside the arches but only the top of the tyre has to be covered thats why 'stretching' tyres is popular as you can get more wheel 'poke' from the arches and still be legal.

13x7 ET-7

Wobble bolts from ebay are your friend! Just watch out as mini wheels usually have mega negative ET! The Polo was dropped 60mm front and 40mm ish rear!



14x6 Golf GTI pepperpot steels make a good tuck wheel for a slammed Polo... 70mm front and 60mm rear.
