So I have a set of these that I can use for free, so I figured since 15in tires are cheaper than 16s and I already have the wheels... Why not use them
However the thing everyone is not sure of is the lugs...
We know that we should be using ball-seat 12x1.25 lugs... but not sure if R12 or R13?
Can you guys help out and old vortexer with this?
well for one thing the holes on the vw wheels are for 14mm studs while your car uses 12mm studs
it COULD be an issue with them moving around if not properly torqued down
you need to see how long your stock lugs are and compare it to the 27mm that is standard vw to see much the bolts will go in you need 7 full turns into the hub for proper holding of the wheel
Got ya... the length is something we can find alternatives for, however the R12 vs R13 is what we aren't sure on and might have no alternatives on.... So I really need an answer for that question first... Any insight on it?
ive gone mine on now also, lug adapters work great however one of my wheels appears to be extremely slightly bent, and wont clear the brakes front or rear, so im running winter wheels in the rear, factory up front...
