not 100% sure, but i think it means two are for the front, and the other two are for the back, in other words, two are small/bigger than the other two.....

cheap set me thinks......

6j and 7j refers to wheel width.

Stock wheels are 5.5j

You could find a better set that don't need refurbing at a good price, but you'll need to have adaptors on your Bug to alloy them to fit as they are 5 stud Porsche pattern and you have 4 stud VW Pattern.

The cost of the adaptors or getting your hubs redrilled to fit will probably put you off as you could get a set of Bug fitment rims for the same price.

I'd recommend some 914 2 litre alloys.


You can get a good set for around £300 if you look around.

fuck that mate... keep your money, save it but don't buy some thing that will cost you more on the insurance.... and attract some twat to nick um...save your money and keep with stock wheels, your bug is cool as it is.

pedrini's are also 4 stud and a really nice offset so you can tuck big tyres under the arches (i was running 205/70/15's). these ones were picked up at BVF last year for £200 for 5!

Another cheaper 4 stud option is the riviera.
And they to are 4 stud pattern

You should be able to pick up a set of these for less than £200 with tyres.
Just polish the high spots and they look decent.

ive just brought a set of centrelines second hand and although i have spent 2 days refurbing them, they look fantastic.

they came with 4 nearly new tyres and cost me 150 quid off ebay.

had to buy some bolts that cost me 32 quid, so all in not a bad investment really.

ive kept the originals as well, as they were painted to match the car and dont look to bad.

i only upgraded because i needed 3 tyres for the mot.
