Attempting to negotiate a partial trade of my OEM NBT wheels for a guy's 15" steelies from an '02 Jetta and have some fitment concerns. I noticed brake caliper clearance seemed a little tight when I put on my new wheels so I was hoping that someone on the ORG has fitted 15" VW steelies to a 1.8T Beetle (or standard beetle if the brakes are the same--I don't know if they are or not).

Apologies if it's a dumb/obvious question, I'm on opposite sides of the state from the seller so I can't try on until the day of the potential sale so if someone already knows they will or won't fit it would be very worthwhile to find out.

Thanks ORGers!

I'm no expert when it comes to Dubs, but my understanding is the Golf, Jetta, and Beetle are all the same chassis. From what I've found, they all use the same caliper as well. I don't see why it would be an issue, but you might want to get another opinion.
