yeah but the stick out on all 4 corners, frontend is like yours in your picture. the rear is bout half that.I thought bout using them but there 4.5" wide, if I build a hi po motor they might spin alot. Also they got a 0 offset and I dont think ghia discs will fit behind them.

I do have and idea for them but donno if it would look right. If I did use these, Id narrow the front 2" maybe that would be enough to allow me to lower the front 3" and then for the rear, buy 1 1/4" wider fenders to cover them fully and lower the rear 1 or 2". If i could maybe theres a tire that would fit better than a 195/60 does, they kinda balloon out but not really bad.

Either that idea or this.

If theres a 165/80/15's(or someting similar) with a performance look Id run them on the rear and if the size exists 165/60/15 (if they do exist I cant find any) for front.
Tire specs from a site I been playing on


Im trying to avoid the bubble look on my tires.

i think there's a 175/55/15 available. and there's an even smaller one, like, 165/45 or something crazy like that.

i'd spend the money on correctly sized wheels because once you factor in the price of wider fenders and a narrowed beam you could have a pretty nice set of wheels. ccc fenders are $200+ with shipping, so fenders alone are more than some sets of wheels.

Actually I was looking at the wheels on my parts bug that has the 8 spokes on it, my 4.5's look like they are the same offset as those just not as wide. I found a place that sells 145/65's and thinking about eventually getting a set, and use the current tires just in the rear since the rear dont bother me.The more I look at it, I am thinking wider fenders wont be needed at all, just a 2" narrowed beam, I wont use drop spindles or disc brakes since I want the full 2" narrow of the beam.My motor will most likely have bout 100hp si it should still be able to stop good, with the added hepl of a smaller tire up front.

I guess Im just trying to get a different look while staying with the VW bolt pattern.I was thinking of going with the baja style rims but I think they would stick out alot even if they are 15x5 and 15x6 that Id want.

Well...Ghia discs wont work on these do to the offset.
Which leaves me to ask, will Porsche 924 wheels 87-82 with the 4-108 bolt pattern fit inside the fenders of a 72 standard bug with stock fenders?im aware the vw pattern is 4-130 though.Anyone know the offset to these by the way?
