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 means, But i don't want to have to buy new tires - cause I just did.

So my question - does anybody in the club have these or know where I can get them? I would like to make mine cream and green to match my car so I know some painting will be involved.

If someone would be kind enough to explain to a newbie if these are wheels, rims, hubcaps, or a combo, so I do not continue to sound dumb, I would appreciate as well. I am in SoCal so if there is a dealer down here that has them so I can actually see them...that would be amazing.

What did you learn??

I tried for several months to find those and gave up :(
just ordered the daisy rims today :)
So now that it is too late for me - still curious where you can get those rims?

Actually they look like the 65 and older beetle wheels which were Solid . where as most reto looking wheels, where peeps take the steelie and add a vintage hubcap look like the 66 and later wheels that had vented slots :) It's all in what a peep wants :cool:

You are correct - hubcapmike.com said they would fit the basic NBC black rim ,
But then I would have had to buy those too . I was told I wouldn't be
happy in the end . I'll post a pix next week when my car has her "new shoes" !!

Thank you for such a quick reply!! Wow that site is expensive --- I paid $112 per rim for the daisies
Thanks!
but yea, i have seen the daisy style rims at many sites, but this was the only site i could find that had the beetle retro rims, dont know why, they look so cool and give the new beetle the old school look, perhaps i didnt google enough, lol, god bless google

You're right, there's links on my picture thread to the wheels we have. Which are PT Cruiser wheels. :)

I've talked to disneybug in PM, led her to the links on jegs.com. :)

AH the ATPs . they look good on a beetle hard to find . Honestly I never liked them much as the home made retros :eek:
You mean the set I have in my garage with Khumo's on them?
