  1. Hi CP, Have just done a test fit with the above wheels and the fronts appear to be too wide, atleast in legal terms. The edge of the rim protudes about 3/4 inch out and I don’t want to chance bring pulled over, etc. Would fitting a tire tire and covering the tread be deemed ok? Was looking at 185/60 however I feel this will offer too much of a square shoulder and result in obvious poke. Are 175/50’s too narrow for modern tire regs?
  2. Hello pleb here. I have finally got round to buying some wheels for my '93 breadvan, they are 13"x6J BBS offset is 33. wondering what the best bet for tires is and not having problems with scrubbing, car is not lowered at all. cheers for any help, again sorry for being dumb.

    Wonky wheels

    I was looking into where my front wheels were rubbing after putting some larger wheels on that friend lent me to try. Turns out it was rubbing on the drivers side arch because that wheel sits about an inch further back than the passenger side wheel. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should investigate first, it's not the wheels themselves. Could worn bushes cause this? My initial thought was that the wishbone could be bent but it's never had a bump or anything.

    For sale: VW Mk1,Mk2, Golf, Polo 86c Coupe S/GT steel wheels Set of four 13” rims plus spare wheel with tyre. Will fit all variants of mk1, mk2 & mk2F polo from 1976 to 1994. Will also fit mk1 & mk2 Golf or indeed any car with the correct hub bolt pattern. 5 1/2J x 13H2 ET38 Bolt pattern is 4x100mm. The spare wheel with tyre is the last original from my polo coupe S which has been externally repainted to a good standard. On the inside the rim has a degree of rust which has been tidied up a bit but not as good as the other four rims. This was sprayed in VW satin silver paint code: LB7Z. Spare wheel has a tyre on it which has a fair degree of tread but as its an old tyre there are some fine cracks. It does hold air pressure absolutely fine though so it could be used but it’s up to you. The four rims are ones that I purchased from Germany a few years ago which where rust free examples which I then stripped back and repainted for my project car. However I then decided to do a rear disc conversion on the car and the 13” rims didn’t fit so I went with another option and the rims went into storage. However, after having a clear out I found that the paint had allot of thin cracks in it and I realised that the lacquer must have reacted with the underlying paint as it wasn’t compatible. So I sanded them back again and got as far as painting two of them in primer, however I could see that the paint wasn’t taking properly and to really do the wheels justice they need sand blasting back before repainting. Since I’m not using them now I wasn’t going to do this but this is why two of them are currently painted yellow. Aside from the paint issues the rims themselves are straight and rust free. A sand blast and repaint would bring them up to a very good condition that would look great. Collection from Abingdon in Oxfordshire. Collection from Basingstoke or Newport south wales may also be a possibility as I travel through there reasonably frequently, this would depend on the dates and times though. Alternatively I am happy for you to arrange your own courier. Please note that i have also listed these on ebay. £120.00 but im open to offers. Thanks!

    I'm selling my set of BBS reps I bought them for my V70 but I can't be bothered with wobble bolt's, etc... The wheels have got lacquer peel and could do with a refurb. Or just keep them for winter tyres. Tyres are cracked but still hold air. Collection from Swinton, Rotherham S64

    Wheel balancing

    I have bought some steel wheels from a bmw e30, they fit well but was wondering if they need to be balanced. They already have weights on and not too sure if that counts.
  14. Hi there guys. Recent new member and proud owner of an '86 Formal E with only 37k on the clock...imagine that. Thought this would be the best place to sign up to in regards to questions and advice etc. I currently have the original wheels in the garage for restoration but would also like some smart lookers for lets face it...showing off. It's currently on period TSWs. I'd have to check the full sizing etc but essentially I was looking for advice on a new set of rims. I'm wondering if anybody can advise as to how big as well as how wide I can go without any modding to arches etc. I assume there'll be plenty of you that have tried bits and bats through your time so who better to ask? Thanks for your time guys, Have a good day!
  15. 1st post didn't show? so hope this doesn't duplicate. Just got a Mk3 Polo and after replacing both rear bearings, have discovered the horrible noise coming from the back was due to flat spots in the tires. Not a fan of 13" anyway but looks like it might be cheaper to buy a 2nd hand set of wheels than replace 3 tires (1 on the front is bad too). I have been offered these wheels shown in photo off a Mk2. They are been sold as 14" G60's but i have heard there is a VW winter wheel? that looks similar. Can anyone identify if these are genuine G60's? Also, what's the going rate £££ for the wheels in the photo? Wether they be G60's or otherwise. Thanks.
  16. Hi, I've just bought a 5 door vw polo 9n3 in grey with the stocks alloys. Ive found some 17" Team Dynamics 5x100 ET55 with some decent set of tyres on them and want to know if they'd fit my car without any other mods needed done first. Thanks, this is my first mod aha appreciate the help in advance. I've added a couple of pics of them.
  17. Hi if anyone could help me would be appreciated im looking to do a stud conversion on my polo 9n3 gti would any one know the size of the stud i would need would it be either m12 or m14 by 1.5 or another size thanks
  18. I need to refurb the standard 6n2 gti wheels that are on my car. I know they are splits to will have to take them apart to do it. Bare with me with this question, I know it might sound stupid but I'd rather sound stupid than try it and muck it up. I would be refurbing the wheels myself so I can't remove the tires. Is it safe to split the rims with tires on still?
  19. I have a set of reasonably rare Dezent typA wheels in 7 & 8" flavour. However the lips are pretty shagged and will require a fair bit of work/money to get looking right again. Therefore I was wondering if it was possible to make a set of 2-piece splits by currint the lip off and tapping the barrels. Does anyone know anything about this as a process and what are the pit falls?
  20. So I've had my mk2 breadvan for a while now and I've decided it's time for some new wheels... by the looks of things there isn't much room on the back at all, the car is lowered 60/40. Does anybody have an idea of what size wheels and tyres i could fit? I'd rather not change the arches too, cheers!!!
  21. hi looking to run 13x7 steels on my mk2 saloon , offset is et10 just wondered if anyone can tell me i theyd rub on the spring at all? thanks in advance

  23. im wanting some wheels for the polo, but want some ideas! just want some wide 14s/15 that i could put straight on and would look good?
  24. First of all, hello! I'm new to this forum, but have been using it a lot to find things out. Very usefull site. I have recently bought a 51 plate 6n2 gti, 1.6 16v, I love the car, been slowly getting it up to scratch as it was a bit knackered when I got it, nice amazing condition leather interior, loves it! Now my problem is that the car has wide rims and stretched tyres, which I don't want (the rims are rota grid drifts I think. They look wicked, sad to see them go but I want standard size alloys and tyres). I'm no good with wheel/tyre sizes so I was hoping someone could recommend me something good? Or tell me the exact specs I need so I can order a set. I want 14/15's, not a fan of low profile tyres. I tried looking online for this info but was struggling.. and couldnt really find a thread on it. Any help much aprecciated. B Edit: photos http://postimg.org/gallery/1t6ybuqm8/
