Each wheel is 5.5 inches wide with a 15 inch diameter.
The 5x112 PCD has an offset of ET20 and a 60 degree tapered seat for the wheel bolts/nuts.
The 5x205 PCD has an offset of ET20 and a 60 degree tapered seat for the wheel bolts/nuts.
Each style of wheel is available in Anthracite, gloss Black, Chrome, Matt Black, Matt Black with Red Rim, Silver, Polished or White finishes.
What is PCD?
PCD stands for Pitch Circle Diamter and is a measure of the wheel stud/bolt hole locations. The PCD is a circle with its centre at the centre of the face of the wheel. The centres of the mounting holes are equally spaced around this circle. So for example a 4x130mm PCD means four mounting holes, equally spaced around a 130mm diamter circle from the centre of the wheel.
Orignal PCD measurements:
- Pre 1967 Beetle (wide 5) = 5x205 PCD
- 1968 Onwards Beetle (4 stud) = 4x130 PCD
- Splitscreen Bus (wide 5) = 5x205PCD
- Baywindow Bus 1968 to 1970 (wide 5) = 5x205 PCD
- Baywindow Bus 1971 to 1979 (Small 5) = 5x112 PCD
- Type 25 Buses 1979 to 1992 (Small 5) = 5x112 PCD
- Porsche Hubs (5 Stud) = 5x130 PCD
NOTE: Karmann Ghia's and Type 3 Variants use the same stud patterns as the VW Beetle.
What is the offset of a wheel?
The offset is the distance from the mounting face of the wheel (where it mounts against the wheel hub), and the centreline of the wheel's width. It will be expressed as a distance, usually in mm and called ET.
