Steel Wheels for Volkswagen Vehicles

Starting this year, we now offer a new 16" steel wheel for Volkswagen applications. It's similar to the wheel it replaced, but is designed to accept the ball or radius seat lug bolts that come with your VW. These wheels are economically priced at $58 each* and are intended for use with Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Packages. The wheel isn't designed to fit Original Equipment hubcaps. For those who would like to purchase hubcaps, view our aftermarket wheel covers.

The 16x6.5" wheel will fit most smaller Volkswagens, however it does not fit larger models like the Passat, Tiguan and Touareg. Audi and VW often share fitments, but the newest Audi models tend to have brakes that are too large for these wheels, while many older Audi models can use them. To check availability for your specific year, make and model, shop by vehicle.

Following the link above will allow you to enter your vehicle's information and browse options available for building a winter package. If you need only the wheels, click the "Skip to Wheels" option at the top of the list of available tires. To learn how we know what wheels are an option for your vehicle, read "How We Know What Fits."

Thats great, except you don't list the 16x6.5 for my 2004 Beetle when OEM had 15 and 16. I want to buy this in 16"

Michael, thanks for bringing up this point. The wheel mentioned in this post has a 5x112 bolt pattern. Some older VW models, including Beetles before 2012, had 5x100 lug pattern. We do not currently have a 16" steel wheel for the 5x100 VW models.

Just what I am interested in. But when I enter my car information there is nothing. Will this fit on a 2015 Golf TDI SE? Stock wheels are 17" Geneva wheels with a 5 x 112 bcd..

We have not yet done test fitment on the 15 Golf TDI. Once we do, we will list what he have to fit. Steel wheeld did fit the 2014 Golf, but that does not 100% guarantee they'll fit the 2015.
