      Well I will be damned. Some low-life scum stole the rims and tires off of my Scirocco and left it sitting there naked on blocks ! What is this world coming to? If anybody see's the wheels offered for sale or for that matter has any information leading me to the guilty party the help would be greatly appreciated! I really need to move the car as the police said it can't be left where it is on blocks .

      Here is a picture of the wheels that were stolen!



      They were RONAL 14" rims with like new Cooper Cobra tires. Stolen from Nuelk's Garage parking lot in Marshall, Wisconsin.





      If you can help please contact me!

      Jim

      BTW I would be willing to offer a modest reward as I REALLY need the wheels to move the car !

      IDK but that would be great. The car is really far from where I live so that mucks things up a bit more. If anyone has a set of wheels I could use or buy please post here! Thanks!

      I drive through Marshall every day for work and saw this today. Such a sad site. I am in Waterloo daily, if you can get your hands on a set of wheels or if someone in Madison can lend you a set I can help throw them on for you or something. PM me if you'd like help. Good luck!

      I found a set of temporary wheels but they stole all the wheel bolts . Does anybody have any VW bolts that would work? I can't even put the rims on and move it without the nuts. Man I am so angry right now!

      If they are the same size as late model I have some. I don't think they are though.

      I think they might be? I know the BMW ones from my 2000 fit. Do you have 16 of them? Could you drop them off at the shop? I would return them or pay you for them. LMK? Thanks again!

      Yeah I have a full set that I took off my car when I did a stud conversion. I will throw them in my car and drop them off tomorrow. Anyone's name I should ask for at the shop?

      The owner is Mike. What time would you be able to drop them off? I am planning on making the trek there to try straightening everything out and moving the car. I will return the bolts if you want them back as I know I probably have some tucked away in storage somewhere! Thanks for the assistance! Jim

      Sorry the bolts didn't work. You might have to grab some new ones from a tire shop or the stealership.

      Wow, sad to see this happen to a fellow Scirocco owner. If I were closer id let you use all my oem rocco lug bolts to get your car moved but I'm way out in Ripon.

      I don't see why a thief would want those wheels, yeah they are nice looking but not something worth stealing... damn

      That sucks, dude!

      Who steals 30 year-old 4x100 Audi Ronals?

      He either has to know EXACTLY what he stole, or just started stealing.

      Sorry dude but let them go. They are likely painted some neon color with snow tires on them by now. Somebody with slanted stickers on the back window and gauged ears is probably bragging about his "tight winter shoes."

      I agree with Patrikman
      Had close to $1K of tools & audio stolen from my car + they trashed/broke hard to find trim inside + broken window. Wasn't pissed, I just let it go. Euthanized the B4 wagon because I felt violated & they left shoe prints all over the black leather Long story short, you win with that clean ass Scirocco
      Now if you catch them, different story Good luck!
      COMING SOON...!
