  1. Rear driver side tire losing air daily, even after installing new tire.

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Hello all, So as the title says, the rear driver side tire has been losing air daily. I fill up the air to about 35 psi and by next morning, it is down to 10psi. I thought it was a small flat maybe so I went to get it patched. However, they told me the rear tires are wearing out so it'd be...
  2. Tire pressure lamp on VW CC 3,6l 2011

    Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    Hello!! I have an annoying tire pressure light in the dashboard that first blinks and after a while lits solid yellow. Started to light when the winter tires were put on, as they do not have sensors in the valves. The summer tires are now on again, but the tire pressure lamp continues to shine...

  5. Stupid me, bought the wrong tire size, would they still fit?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I made a mistake yesterday and bought 4 225-55-17 tires to replace the ones I have on my B5. I do realize I should have bought 225-45 instead but I screwed it up. Should I still try to mount them and try them on the car or is it a waste of time or even dangerous? My car currently has 3...
  6. 2000 Passat 1.8T - Front Passenger Tire area making a strange noise

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    The front passenger tire area seems to be making a strange sound. Visually nothing appears to be wrong with the tire. At first I thought it was a flat tire a couple days ago, but that was not the case. The sound is constant and best heard at lower speeds, though I can hear it a bit at highway...

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    The gas cap door indicated 28 PSI for the car with stock 195 65 R15's. Is that what others here use. Just wondering because it seems so low.

    You may or may not have seen me post about the 2000 Passat we just picked up with 89,xxx original miles...the guy we got the car from put a new set of tires on for us as the ones on the car were brand-mismatched "takeoffs" (used) with quite a bit of wear and, well, they sucked to put it bluntly...
  10. Sway bar and uneven tire wear?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had removed the sway bar and drove like that for quite some time. ( it feels smoother) as I decided to put it back on I realized that the inner edge of the front right tire is worn out considerably. Does driving without sway bar cause it? Or simply an alignment issue?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I had my car aligned and aligned good. Steering wheel angle programmed and what not. I take the car for a drive, steering wheel is straight, not shaking, and no pulling. I was a happy camper, well I took it on the highway and going over 60mph it was pulling to the left. Weird pulling too, but at...
  14. Shop damaged tire, but how?

    Anything Auto
    I should start by saying, the shop is replacing the tire free of charge to me, so I'm not mad. They're making it right, I'm just wondering how it happened. I found a small bolt in my tire this morning.Took it to shop #1, they looked it over and said they could patch it but were busy so I went...

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    Hey guys, I really lucked out today, picked up four 18" Samarkand wheels today for my b5 Passat wagon. Haven't decided what color to paint them yet, they are currently lime green. My question for you guys is what size tire do I need for them? I want a lower profile, definitely don't want a big...
  17. Vibration and tire question (I think I know? Please confirm)

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Before I had my rotation done, at 55-65 mph it would shake a lot and vibrate, I had the tires rotated and now the vibration is kinda gone-ish, but now it's more towards the rear rather the front. I need the two new tires, get all four tires balanced/re-balanced, and the alignment in my car is...

  19. Very odd malfunction: misfire after tire change and front alignment

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Today I took my B5.5 for a tire change. Two weeks ago the car was tuned-up and had an oil change. Everything fine, smooth and excellent fuel mileage (30.1 mpg). Suddenly the car began with a misfire when the installer handed me the car. I asked him, WTF?? The obvious answer you might guess "oh...
  20. Tire size for my Helio's

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    So I need new tires but I'm finding my current size hard to find a variety of tires to choose from. The previous owner had 235/35/19 on them. I looked up vw's factory size for Helios and its listed as 255/40/19. I currently have them on a B6 w/ stock suspension w/ no current plans to changing...
