Stock Rim backspacing and Size

Post by Beetlejay »

I recently aquired a 5th rim as a spare for my 71 Bus. I thought it would be useful to list the information on that rim for anyone that may need this data. It would be great to get a list together of as many stock rims as we can. This data can be very useful when calculating if a custom rim will work on your Bug or Bus.

Lug Pattern: 5x112
Rim Diameter: 14"
Rim Width: 5.5"
Rim Backspacing: 5"
Fits: 1971 and up Bus

1973 Super Beetle
1971 Deluxe Sunroof Bus
1999 New Beetle GLS

Excellent idea.

1968 thru 1969 VW beetle rims, They're usually painted 2 tone. White on outside and black on inside.
15 inch diameter
4 inch wide
3.5 inch offset

68-69 rims
