EMPI's 17x7" Chrome Plated Aluminum BRM Wheel has a 5x205 VW lug pattern and includes a Chrome Plated Center Cap with BRM Logo and Chrome capped Valve Stem. VW used the 5x205 lug pattern on 1954 through 1967 Beetles, 1956 through 1966 Karmann Ghias, 1955 through 1970 Type 2 Bus models, 1962 through 1965 Type 3s and 1973 through 1974 Things. EMPI's chrome wheels are triple chrome dipped (not sprayed) for durability and shine. The offset or ET of the aluminum wheel is 42mm, the back spacing is 5 5/8"and the 5x205 drilled pattern requires 60 degree conical seat lug nuts or lug bolts. The wheel is manufactured by EMPI with state of the art high quality machining and finishing.
Once a tire has been mounted to the wheel, the wheel can not be returned! Check for fitment before installing tires and have your tire shop check that the wheel is true (straight) before they install the tires!
