Working at Tire Rack, I have the opportunity to talk to many customers and fellow drivers, including Volkswagen owners. With two VWs sitting in my garage, I share their enthusiasm for this particular brand.
On a recent call with Paul from Baltimore, we were talking about the 16x7.5 ASA GT1 (Bright Silver Paint) wheels and 215/55ZR16 Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires on his 2005 VW Passat GLS TDI Wagon. He mentioned that instead of using the standard 64mm ASA center cap, he took the Original Equipment, 65mm VW center cap and sanded it down to fit properly on the wheel. Wanting to see how it turned out, I asked Paul to send me a photo. Take a look at his work:
