    I have a 1999 Passat and planning to purchase a set of 18 inch rims. I found hub rings which go from 66.1 to 57.1 which should convert the hub size. The rims are 18x8 with a 45mm offset. I would love to see a picture of someone's car with a set of 18x8 45mm offset.

    Hi there, I need to change the rear hub of my B6 2.0T 2008. I would like to know if someone has already done it before. I have been to 3 garages and no one had the tools to do it. Till now only the VW Dealer happens to have it. The guy there told me also it has to connect the computer in...

    Do you put regular anti seize? or some dialectic grease for electronics? Long story. I did CV boot on 2010, was able to wiggle out ABS speed sensor without too much issue on both axles. I notice there was some type of grease coming from factory on sensors and sleeves. I clean them off while...

    After swapping tires multiple time, I come to realization that at least one of wheel bearings is giving off noise. and in my case, it is more likely on my right side. I have a 1.8T B5 FWD. So I assume it is the front one. Does anyone ever have trouble with rear wheel bearing on a FWD B5...

    So I need to run some of this info by you guys and get your collective experience/knowledge. I don't see my issue brought up anywhere on here. My current wheel/spacer combo: ET43 + 5mm = ET38. My hub length: 12.7mm So here's the deal. I have been on the hunt for a set of spacers for my rear...

    Hi all: I bought some 17 inch wheels second hand. They're Sport Edition. I do not know what the model name is. Stamped on the inside of the wheel are various lug specs including the VW 5 x112, the Made in China thing and this number "WK18817X7JJ". I googled that number and got zero. They fit my...

    I have a set of 4 hub caps from a 2002 VW Passat. They are for 15 inch wheels. I no longer have the vehicle, and so they are of no use to me. Asking $45 shipped for the set. By magiteck at 2011-10-20

    So I ordered some rear wheel hubs for my 00 passat 1.8t fwd off I have been searching and I can only find information on replacing the front wheel hubs, are the rears pressed in or are they bolted in? The hubs I ordered do not have bolts on the back of the hub, but it looks as if...

    i own some 19" TSW Holstens. when i take a caliper to them, i get 72.2mm for the bore diameter. 73mm rings are too big. 72.6 too big. the 71.6 i have in them from ECS fit, but the bevel geometry doesn't quite match, making them "taller" when inserted. i've tried sanding the rings down a bit to...

    On a 2006 Passat: I am trying to change the driver side front wheel bearing/bearing hub assembly. I got pretty far, but was unable to push the drive axle far enough back to access the bolts that hold the bearing hub assembly in...these are the four 12point socket head bolts. Does anyone have...

    So, my front left wheel bearing is gone. I see that the actual process of removing the old wheel bearing and putting the new one in is quite a hassle almost not worth doing for me, so I was wondering if this would work. *Replacing the entire hub with a new one complete with bearing installed...

    Hey everyone, I noticed the other day that I was missing a lug nut on the driver front wheel. I found it in the glove box and tried to screw it in, but the threads are all messed up in the hub. Looks like the PO (or a shady shop) stripped the threads with an impact and just tossed the lug nut...
