14" wheels on the pop

There's been alot said about the 15" and !6" wheels! but has anyone ordered a pop with the 14" wheels? or is it just not even worth considering them??

I ordered my Pop with 14" wheels.

Then 2 days before the car was fixed for production I added a set of 433 alloys (15")

Re: 14" wheels on the pop

I have ordered 14" wheels but I may add alloys at a later stage. Not keen on those available. Might add vintage wheel trims but dont know what they look like. I cant afford to keep adding to my order.

Also Breakbeat Grey is not a free option. It's a mistake on the configurator. It's a metallic which costs £375

Re: 14" wheels on the pop

Our Pop has 14" wheels, as all the option wheels didn't appeal. We decided to get the free 14" wheels, then go for something aftermarket when we found something we'd liked.

They look fine, but the high profile and narrowness make them quote bouncy. 15" is probably ideal.
Thanks slimgimli thanked for this post

Re: 14" wheels on the pop

A few of us would like to try 14s on a 500 but not many around oop North -anyone know where there's a demo 500 with 14"s on pref North of London?

*Thinking aloud*If U could get a saleman to put a set of 14" Panda wheels on a 500 lounge or Pop (they have very similar tyre size/profile) would that feel about the same as with the proper 500 14inchers on .

*Still thinking aloud*Would a kind salesman be willing to change wheels over for a pernickerty customer who wanted to try one on 14s?
Any volunteers?

You proberly could get someone to do it. Ofcourse they would need to be convinced that you were going to buy the car providing the test drive went fine.

Re: 14" wheels on the pop

We've ordered pop with 14' steel wheels and the vintage caps - these look fantastic and suit a retro themed car well.

Re: 14" wheels on the pop

I bet they look good, tbh all the alloys offered dont really do anything for me... too modern.
Bet you cant wait for your car?
