Re: Mk3 rollin on bmw rims (normajean)

they're only 14s tho. if they were 15s and had a flat VW cap on, i'd say maybe, but.... they aren't, so i'd say no.

Re: Mk3 rollin on bmw rims (ALPHAQGTI)

okay - another question.
I have 15" steelies on my car right now, with bald tires. (hate how it looks)
Would it be worht a $100 to put these bmw rims and better tires on?

Re: (VdubVr6PowR)

I don't know if the bolt pattern is the same as VW and I almost guarentee that the hubcentric size is different and on top of that BMW uses the conical lugs and VW uses spherical lugs. On top of that you have to worry about offset because BMWs are rear wheel drive and run a variety of different offsets. Basically you are at a minimum looking at getting all new lugs and some hub rings and you may need to add adapters or spacers to that. If you are looking to do something cheap then just get new tires for your current steelies and get some VW hubcaps. The price difference between 14 and 15 inch wheels is very minimal.

paint them black and drop your car and put them on,then post pics http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

why would he paint them black? he already said he has steelies and he hates how they look. wouldn't you think painting these black would make them look a lot like steelies?

Re: (ALPHAQGTI)

If you're doing 14"s why not some VW 14"s.
Look what I'm sporting:


Have some grey lug nut caps on the way too.
If you want to rock the BMW 14"s - cool but I'd get a different center cap.

Re: Mk3 rollin on bmw rims (Blown Wide Open)

ive had them on my mk3 and i think it looked good. a little like the ronal turbos but not as clean. great for cheap wheels though. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
