What are the specs on the p wheels. I know the BP is 4X100, but are the wheels 14 X 6? Also what is the offset? Many thanks for the help. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

14 inches.
I'm guessing 6 inches wide, maybe 6.5.
ET is either 35 or 37, I'll look at them when I get off work.

I've found they are a great conversation piece when showing your car to people.

LOL, I bought it like that.
Well actually the wheels came in the trunk of the Jetta I bought as an added bonus - so I can't complain. The car originally had the nasty color coded teardrops which are going to get refinished/painted someday.
edit: As bad as it looks, the tire compensates and it never vibrates or anything so I lucked out.

I just got it a few weeks ago so that's the original suspension and I've got front fender flares on the way. Click Jetta link in my signature, I've done quite a bit of work so far.
edit ^ 2nd picture is screwed up cuz I used my digital camera after leaving in the car all night in subzero temperatures.

I never weighed them when they were off, but they were noticably lighter than my teardrops when I picked them both up at the same time.

VW never sold the 15 inch Pirelli wheel. It was an option on a Honda. Yes, a Honda. Don't know the model, it was long ago...
The 14 inch wheel is 6 inches wide with an 35mm offset. The 15 inch was a 5,5 inch wide wheel, with a fairly high offset of 45mm.

Re: P Slot wheels...I have a question... (Speedlaw)

Does anyone know if these wheels came stock on any Canadian model cars?
