    Hi, so I got my tires changed at Walmart last year and unbeknownst to me someone neglected to put my lug nut key back. I know I either need to: A. Buy all new lug nuts and replace them.

    Okay, so I have about 26k miles on my tires. I hit a nasty bump and my tire is toast. I need your expert opinions. The link I provided below lists the options I have. I'm tempted to order the tire and have it delivered to me and have someone install it, mount it, etc. The tire specs are...

    Hey everyone! First post :wave3: Backstory: My beetle had gotten into an accident a while ago. Afterwards, I got 2 new tires from Costco. I didn't know much about what tires were needed or anything and after the cost of repair for the car I just wanted the cheapest for the time being. :(...

    Hello all, I have a 2003 Cyber Green Color Concept and I need to get new tires. I currently have 225 45R 17s on the Take 5 rims with the inserts.

    Okay, so at Bugstock I saw that New Beetles can, indeed, have retro wheels and I would like them for mine. I am new to this "pimp you car" and I have no idea where to go. I have an '07 convertible - non-turbo. Currently, it has stock-sized tires and I have no idea what size that is or what that...

    I replaced my cv joint axles the other day, and then drove it 90 miles round trip to school. Drives like a dream until 75mph, then there's a new vibration, like a loud hum, almost like loud bass. It it's worst with acceleration, and it responds to it. Say, I'm just getting up to 75, it will...

    I am looking for a wheel and tire package, used are ok. I am looking for a very affordable price, around $200. I know that may be a silly(too cheap)price for wheels, but I've seen and heard of that price for them :) If I have no luck, I will probably go with retro steelies- involves old hubcaps...

    Have a set of very clean Aristos (18") with Kumho Ecsta tires on them. I would say the tires are around ~50% maybe alittle more/less. One rim has alittle curbage on it. Others just have small spots here and there, very nice from a couple feet away, really have to study them to pick out the...

    My soon-to-be wife just got a New Beetle TDI. I immediately replaced her stock rims with some Aristos off of an R32. So the stock Alloy ones are for sale. 3 of the tires are pretty good and 1 is brand new, literally 0 miles. I was going to keep them so she had winter tires but we might be...
