Hi guys! i am a longtime VW enthusiast and owner but new to vwvortex. I Just purchased a 1993 B3 with the original VR6 has the 15'' BBS Wheels on. I have some early Porsche Phone Dials sleeping in my garage and was wondering if anyone here already fitted those wheels and may help me to find the right size of adaptors that i will need.

16x7'' Front 23.3 Offset
16x8'' Rear 23.3 Offset

I'd like to run some 205/45R16's.

I'd appreciate a little help since i'm not a Wheel offset master! Thanks

I would try to find a set with some better offsets unfortunately. Smallest adapter you can run is 15mm, and that leaves you at et8. This could be pulled off with the 8" in the rear with a little stretch, but the front will be no bueno.

Mine is also a VR6 and I am currently at et25 front et10 rear on a set of 16x8 square. et25 up front just clears the front fenders with a full roll, and i'm running 195/45 (little stretch), and -2 deg camber.

front for reference (the one on the right):


Good luck! :beer:
