As stated I have some Borbet Type A 5x112 15 inch 7.5 wheels with flat caps and standard caps. Not sure what to do with them any thoughts if I should keep or let go??!

Well, actually, Bentley list five wheel sizes. The largest being 17.7 for a 225.17.45 tire. My experience suggests that one could use a tire as large as 225.18.45 with minimal rubbing if any, and speedo would be more accurate. As we all know, there is lots of room under a B5 fender.

I get that. 15" is the standard size on the B5/5.5 1.8T and I believe even V6 GLS. GLX moves you up to 16" and some cases 17" including W8 trim.

All the OP was asking is if they should keep or let them go. Technically, they fit as shown in their classified thread.
