Hey Guys,

So I have to purchase new hubcaps for my 2010 white beetle.

I am having the HARDEST time. I am too indecisive.

Wanted to get some peoples opinions or see if anyone could suggest anything? We are thinking my car has 16" tires(will be confirmed today)
I love the image I have attached of the MB wheels, Sprite Rims; But I cant afford them. I also really love the retro look but I have no clue how to go about that. (Ive found affordable 'racing disks' but I just am not sure how to get the look I want) I saw someone post a vintage looking rim by a company that apparently doesnt make them anymore, they were 'dome' looking. I wanna say the company was like ASB or ABS?

Here are my options I've found:
Stock looking beetle hubcaps(I could buy stickers to make them look stock, rofl)
4 Pc Set New 16" Hub Cap Silver Wheel Cover fits Volkswagen Jetta Beetle 1999

I really like these as I feel like they mimic MB wheels Sprite Rims(which I cant afford! lol)
4 PC Hub Caps ABS Silver Lacquer 16" inch Rim Wheel Skin Cover Center Cap Set | eBay



Now I COULD buy two more STOCK hubcaps for my year model... but wheres the fun in that. not to mention they are $50-60 a piece and I am poor! ;)

any advice or options would be appreciated! I keep finding beetles I like but they have RIMS not hubcaps.
Help me decide!! :)

Congrats on your "new" 2010! I just picked up a 2010 Final Edition vert last month!

Regarding your wheels. The 2010 came with 2 packages. Package one, came with everything basic; cloth seats, 16 inch wheels, etc. Package two came with a leatherette interior and 17 inch wheels. So that's how you can tell the wheel size right away.
Mine is a package 2, but the wheels were so beat up, that I swapped them out for a set of 16" Daisies that I kept from my 2008, when I sold her.
I still have the basic hubcaps from the 17" wheels that I junked. They are just these 3" plastic things with the VW logo, that you pop in to the center of the wheels.
You can get a set on eBay for under $25, though.

Oh, Crap that means I have 17"! Do you have any details on that? I haven't found anything besides the one package? DO I HAVE HEATED SEATS ??

I'll look up the new hubcaps, I hadnt found any for $25. :( I just want SOMETHING on her asap before I can start working on her.

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry I never replied to you; I forgot to subscribe to this thread!
Did you solve your wheels dilemma? You were talking about hubcaps, but did you actually mean rims?
