      Feeler / For trade / For sale

      16x8 professionally widened steelies

      Made from new (from dealership) TT/beetle steel wheels. Widenened by weldcraft in Michigan. Split with plasma torch rolling rig, centers cut out & reset to desired offset/backspace, leveled true with a lathe, tig welded with 2" bands, then sanded, and sealed.

      The wheels were powder coated speedway black, then double clear coated. washed and waxed on a regulatory basis. Including the inner barrels. 99% free of dings, no flaking or chipped paint.


      Fronts: 16x8 et26, 5.5" backspacing. The fronts fit 312mm TT brakes without spacers.they do not fit 334mm R32 brakes. They also easily tuck under mk3 fenders with room to spare. about a credit cards thickness of clearance between the top of the tires and a koni coil-over spring at max camber. (without spacers)
      Pictured below are the front wheels with 10mm spacers on the fronts, a final offset of et16 with camber at ~3.5 degrees.

      Rears: 16x8 et16, 5.12" backspacing. There is no rubbing on the rears with rolled fenders, room to space them out more if need be. pictured are the rear's cambered at -2 degrees.

      These come with 215/40/r16 hankook ventus tires, mounted/balanced in June 2011. NOT ABUSED.

      There are no bends on these wheels - they run true to the day they were made.

      obligatory price, $1000

      Trade? something really neat in 5x100; 16x8, 16x7.5, 15x8, or 15x9. Some good tires would be nice. ronal's, azev's, abt's, borbet's, ... the usual.

      I'm not looking for: junk, garbage, or staggered wheels.

      pictars











      Rear fitment with no spacers. Plenty of clearance.


      if there are any questions I'd be happy to answer them.

      Did you have to roll the lips on those fenders to fit those wheels??

      They fit without a roll, they didn't rub with one.

      I'd offer you a set of BBS RXII I just purchased two months ago but at $1000 I would have to throw some cash in the mix but its just too expensive.

      Very cool wheels & color scheme though!!!
