  1. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I'm looking at picking up a B7 1.8t to replace my B5.5 wagon (which is for sale if any of you are interested in a rare configuration Passat). I have always resisted going to really big wheels for a bunch of reasons on cars in the past. •less chance of wheel damage •lighter wheels •less...

    Before: During: (3 coats black plastidip) After: (2 coats of silver Metalizer plastidip) Additional info: Prepped with rubbing alcohol. Tire shined the tires so plastidip over spray would peel with ease (which it did). The Metalizer can kept clogging but I worked with it. The pictures...

    I just got a set of 17" 5 spoke audi a4 wheels and they came with 245/45/17 on it and they look like truck tires. What is your guys personal preference on what should go on a 17" wheel on a B5 wagon? I dont want something too low profile because the wheels will look a little small but i dont...

    Hey guys, two of my wheels have a slight bend in them giving off a mild wheel vibration. Along with that my tires are going to need to be replaced soon. I figured I can kill two birds with one stone. I have a dark green b5.5 wagon and am trying to decide between 17s and 18s. I am at the stock...

    Hi All, I just bought a 02 Passat Wagon. It has the stock 15" steel wheels and obviously needs replacements. My question is what size wheels to go with but not really fitment, I'm interested in ride quality and wheel ruggedness. I'm in the Chicago area and was running 205/40/17s on my...

    I have recently acquired a b5.5 Wagon. I am doing some work on it and not sure whether I will sell it or keep it. In the meantime, if I decide to keep it I will be changing the wheels for sure. What have some of you Wagon owners put on yours? 18s are acceptable too, but I am thinking I'll...

    I'm getting some oem 17s and my car will be back to stock suspension so i was wondering whats the biggest tire i can get to fit without rubbing and give me the least wheel gap.
  12. Wheel and Tire Forum
    So for my next set of wheels i plan on getting 17s and a little bigger tires. I'm also pretty low and was wondering if the best tire would be 225 45's? Probably going with 17x8 or 8.5. The ones i will more than likely get are 17x8 with 48mm offset. Plan on getting 15mm spacers upfront and 20 in...

    I haven't seen a lot of b5's with 17's and this because it wouldn't look good? If anyone has any pics of their b5 slammed on 17s, I'd like to see. Trying to decide between 17s and 18s at the moment:D

    Hey all, I just upgraded on my '03 GLS wagon from 195/65/15s to 225/45/17s and have a question about tire pressures. When I upgraded, I put 30 psi front, 32 psi rear, and noticed an immediate drop in my freeway gas mileage. I normally get 30-31 mpg and now get about 28. The wheel...

    Will GTI 17" "Activa" rims fit the bolt pattern on my 1.8T Variant?
  18. Wheel and Tire Forum
    OK, I've been looking around for wheels I like, and the two styles that grab me are the A4 5-spoke sport wheels on many of the later models (B6, I believe), and Monte Carlos replicas (like those on the Jetta.) BUT THEN, I read this post: honestly, if you want summer rubbers, i'm assuming its...
