Our set of 4 EMPI 15x5.5" Aluminum Cosmo Wheels have a 5x205 VW lug pattern and include Black Center Caps with EMPI Logos and Chrome capped Valve Stems. 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. The wheels have machine polished aluminum edges and raised spokes that are highlighted by the gloss black faces of the wheels which have "V" shaped gaps between the spokes. The offset or ET of the aluminum wheels is 22mm, the back spacing is 4 1/8" and the 5x205 drilled pattern requires 60 degree conical seat lug nuts or lug bolts which can be added above. The wheels are 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!

Note: The wheel can be installed in the rear of 1970 and earlier Type 2s with 5x205 bolt pattern drums, but the axle nut prevents you from being able to install the cap.
According to EMPI, "When installing this wheel on the rear of a 1970 and earlier 5x205 bus, the wheel cap will not fit on, due to how far out the stub axle nut is."
