  4. Arizonan Costco Tires?

    Wheels and Tires
    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. :(...
  5. Going up a tire size.

    Technical Modifications
    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. I live in New England and with the weather up here the roads are very bumpy and in the winter they get worse. The low profile tires look great, but...

    Wheels and Tires
    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...

    2.0 Liter Gas
    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 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...

    Marketplace Archives
    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...
