    1. 08-31-2006 01:33 AM #1


      I had pics of the adapters, but I can't find them...

      Anyone know where these adapters can be purchased...

      ive never heard of anyone making 5x205 adapters, i had not even ever heard of that pattern before , im sure you can get them custom made at any machine chop.

      common early air cooled bolt pattern..hence the air cooled steel wheels on the red golf above..

      the ones you have pictured seem to be of 25 or so mm thick but to me that might be to thick to run an air cooled steel wheel on...as they genreal offset of the wheels are ET19 IIRC..

      Im guessing that they are much thinner than that on the red car.

      a few years ago in a vw trends mag a dood had a low light ghia with porsche 924 breaks (4x108 lug pattern) and had a 1/2" place made with the wide 5 to run the stock wheels..

      1/2" is is 12.7mm
      12.7 - 19 is et of 6.3 which would work

      with those adaptors pictured above you would have some neg offset and they would stick out to far...but that is only if the offset of the wheel is correct..(from what I read in CIP1 catalog and vw trends.

      The wheels on that car are 5x130 Porsche steel wheels. There were on some cars in the US. Ive seen a set in the junkyard. The regular ole Porsche adpaters everyone uses will work for those wheels.

      Are yo certian? by the pattern of the holes they look standard beetle wheel to me...not doubting you..but it would make fittin easier...that is of course if the porshe steels were in the ET 40-50 range..

      Well ive seen 15" steel wheels just like that on a 924 in the junkyard and they even had the same hub caps with the P logo. They were 52.Xet.
      Theyre still in the yard. There are only 2 hubcaps and thats why i never got them. Maybe i someday ill go get em. They aint going anywhere in that place. Theyve been there for years.

      jonny_breakz: Thanks for the info...

      DefHare: Thanks for pointing that out!!! I swore those were pre-'67 5-wides... I have a set of 5x130 adaptors laying around so the Porsche wheels could be a viable option...

      Why would that not be balanced? As lonfg as the machining is 100% on, the balance should be pefect. The 4 lugs are evenly spaced, and so are the 5 lugs, as bad as it looks in theory, it should be 100% balanced with parfect machining.

      Mr. Breakz don't forget with a steel wheel you have the option to make it any et and width you want. You just gotta send em to that old dood Harley.

      true...one can modify the wheel to virtually any offset so I suppose this is an option.

      I spoke to the owner of that car, he was on here last winter , he is german and spoke some english and I tried to find out more info on his set up and he said it was adaptors but didnt get back to me on lug pattern or width..

      a shame really....have not seen or heard from him since..

      I never really ventured into this as I am rocking fox steels on fancy and have been asked a number of times what air cooled model they are from.

      mk2's have a 14" steel wheel that resemble a bug steel quite a bit with the hole pattern and shape, that would also be viable option as well...Im sure you can fit some sort of bug cap on there..
