The New Beetle, Golf and Jetta; are all based on the Mark IV platform and share the 5x100 bolt pattern. These should fit your car; stock, the New Beetle came with 16" and 17" wheels. Some have said; they did not like, the way the 18" wheels changed how the car handled and the ride feel. I believe these will fit fine.

Width and offset of the wheels are going to be most important. Since they are on a mk4 GTI you're most likely fine. But it may be good to get that info.

To save you the click, here are the specs of the wheels.

It seems that they will work fine.

I'd check offsets. I'm not a big wheel expert, but I know offsets are a big deal as far as how wheels fit. Since that second set is on a Subaru, you may have some different offsets that could make the wheel stick out too far, etc.

I will confirm the offset, but I think these wheels come with an ET of 35mm

hmmm, if 35mm, then it looks like they will be fine.

Here is another beetle with the same wheel and it looks fine.
