    A few months ago I found a decent deal on some used 16" OEM rims that I thought would be a nice replacement for my beat up original GLX Road Americas that I run during the winter months. They're called Conturs (not Contours) and seem to be an especially rare variant that was supplied to dealers...

    I'm going to need a new set of winter tires and found a good deal on some Bridgestone Blizzaks. The rub is that in winter I run the stock 205/55-R16s on my 02 GLX 4motion, and these being sold are 215/55-R16. Besides the miniscule speedometer difference (~2km/h at highway speeds) is there any...

    So I just bought some wheels and I had looked at a bunch of pictures on fitment industries to decide what wheel size I wanted to go with. I got some 18x8.5 +35 offset and i have 225/40/18s tires to go with it. When I lined them up and they poked a good amount, like more than it seemed in the...

    Does anyone know the inner diameter of the center caps that will fit on B5.5 Road America wheels? I got a set without the caps on the '02 GLX that I recently bought and I'm looking. I believe the model number is 7D0-601-165 and that the outer diameter is 63mm, but beyond that I keep seeing...

    I want to get rid of these aftermarket chrome catastrophes the previous owners saw fit to install. I want a simple set of steel wheels I can toss some hubcaps on. I've searched extensively and cannot find a simple steel wheel (15"). Do they make these for VW?

    Fundraising for new mountain bike! Second owner -- picked up about 6 years ago when she had a little over 93,000 miles. Was very well maintained + the timing belt was recently changed @ 90,000. We have now purchased a new Tiguan SEL and the faithful Passat must move on down the line. 2003...

    Its unavoidable in my small town with its small parking spaces. Different people driving my W8 Passat. My wheels have considerable damage to the outter rims from rubbing against the curb or footpath. I took a quick look today, and notice the most outter edge is approx 12mm and almost seems to...

    Ever since we bought it (around 160k miles, currently 200k), our 2002 V6 4motion has been having unbalanced wheel-like vibrations around 65 mph and faster. In the meantime, we have replaced the tires, wheels, and rotors/pads. The vibrations occur irrespective of braking and are more noticable in...
