The widest 18" wheel I've ever seen installed on a New Beetle without rubbing the fenders or the suspension components is an 18"x8.5" BBS CH (ET30) set of wheels. Oettinger doesn't offer the specified size wheels for the New Beetle; there's probably a reason...
Hi mate the backs will but the front will poke out
To much I have 9s on the front and ive cambered
Them in at the top to make the fit only just
But I have 10s at the back and they set pretty well
Good luck and nice wheels
We have these wheels on our 2014 Beetle conv. I want to take the hub cap part off and run spokes but want to cover up the center area and lugs. I would even put chrome lugs if a center vw cap filled the center.
Just bought a 2006 2.5L NB. One of the center VW logo caps is missing. See different sizes on ebay 55mm, 56mm. Mine measure 56mm measured on the outside. Do they screw in, snap in? The recess in mine looks rather 'boogered up'. Bill
