I have a 98 beetle. I am wanting some diffrent rims and I need to know what the stock offset is. I am going to stay with stock sized tires. If anyone has a link to some nice looking white rims that would be great.
I had the same problem after I bought "Blue"....Your stock offset is ET42,with a6.5J rim width,on a 16 inch wheel. 5x100 bolt pattern.I got a set of 15 inch steel wheels from a 2000 to 2005 Golf or jetta. They have a ET 35 offset, with a 6.0 inch rim width on 15 inch rim.I just scored a set of 1993 Passat VR6 BBS Daytona wheels with a ET35 offset,6.0 width 15inch>they fit close to the brake caliper,but seem just fine.
Here is a list of what will fit our cars...Stock Factory wheels.....Hope this helps...Keep on Buggin If your stock tire size is 205-55-16, you can use 195-65-15
98 up New Beetle
93-98 Golf VR6
93-98 Jetta VR6
92-97 Passat VR6
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
