- Works with all 5x205 hub caps
Tired of your aftermarket aluminum wheels? Looking for a cost-effective way to get back to that stock style? Or just need a spare? Look no further. These silver smoothies look great and won't break the bank. At 5.5" wide, these wheels are 1" wider than the original 15" wheels offered from the factory (see notes below for fitment). They are set up for a 5x205mm bolt pattern and have a 3 7/8" back spacing. These wheels accept the early ('54-65) dome style hubcaps used on Type 1s and 2s, as well as the "flat" caps found on '66-67 Type 1s.
These wheels will work with any of the 15" tire sizes we carry on our site, as well as a variety of other sizes, depending on the vehicle model and application. Our 165R15 tires are the closest tire size available to what was originally offered from the factory (5.60-15).
This wheel fits 1954 to 1967 Beetle, 1956 to 1966 Karmann Ghia, 1956 to 1970 Type 2s, and 1962 to 1965 Type 3s.
Please note, while it is possible to make them work with modifications, these wheels typically do not fit on the rear of a stock Type 2.
We have had customers tell us that the 5.5" inch rims are too wide to clear the fenders on a stock ride height bus.

Once a tire has been mounted to the wheel, the wheel cannot be returned! It is against federal law to re-sell used wheels and tires as new. Check fitment before installing tires and have your tire shop check that the wheel is true (straight) before they install the tires! These are not restoration quality wheels. More often than not, these wheels leave the manufacturer with scratches, dents and surface imperfections. When cleaning the wheels, test any soaps or chemicals in an inconspicuous area (such as behind the hubcap) to make sure the substance does not discolor the paint. Feel free to call us if you have any questions!
