I  am thinking of fitting 7x13  -7 ET wheels to a mk 1 mexico  the rear arches have not been rolled  the tyres fitted are 175/50/13  will these fit under standard rear arches yes or no

cheers

Generally yes, they should fit, dependent on choosing the right offset wheels.....but conventional wisdom is that 6J is about the limit on a mk1 without rolling the arch lips. 

Before you go ahead, have you considered the impact that 50 profiles will have on your driving experience?  They totally screw up the gearing ratios and also the Speedo reading.
