Rocco Mk1 wheel fitment guide/help.

Post by Joti » Wed Sep 19, 2012 11:33 am

Hello

I need a litle help about wheels settings/rocco mk1 fenders.

I'm restoring my mk1.

And i want to fit 16" wide wheels.

What is the best way to roll/flare original rocco mk1 fenders??
Cut them internally?
Cut and after roll them?
Only roll them??

It's possible to fit 9.5x16 with ET20+ on the rocco??

If not, which it's the most likely, how wide can i go??

The wheels are 3-piece Compomotive TS.

A litle help.

Cheers



Winston

Mine were cut down and rolled.

Let me do some digging to help you with fitment. but 9.5J is abit much even with rolled arches imo

Many thanks Winston.

I'm seeing that 9.5x16 will be with much poke for my taste.

Maybe will be in 7.5/8" at front and 8/8.5 at back.

What do you think will be the perfect size for the rocco in 16"?

Can you send some pictures of yours fenders work??

Yes they can be redrilled.

The 5 PCD holes and centerbore is going to be welded/filled, and then re-open nem PCD holes and ceterbore:

Here you can see the same work done to Lorinser RT wheels of a friend:
