Steel Wheels in Stock for VW GTI

The current Volkswagen GTI is one of the most popular cars in the hatchback segment. It usually comes equipped with either summer tires from Bridgestone or all-season options from Pirelli or Dunlop. While these tires work well in the warmer months, they do not have much focus on snow traction. Which means purchasing a Winter / Snow Tire & Wheel Package is your best bet for handling the toughest conditions winter has to offer.

For the driving enthusiast on a budget, buying steel wheels with your winter GTI tires can help keep the total cost down. Tire Rack currently has 16x6.5" steel wheels in stock that fit the GTI priced at $58 each (price and availability accurate as of 10/19/12). These wheels will not only fit the GTI, but many other Volkswagen and Audi applications using the 5x112 bolt pattern, including the A3, A4, new (2012+) Beetle, Passat, Golf and Jetta.

Winter weather hasn't yet arrived, but winter / snow tire season is in full swing. Many winter items are stocked seasonally, and October is often the month where we have the widest selection in stock. So be prepared this winter by purchasing early so you'll get the tires and wheels you want.

I recently purchased a set of 4 steelies for my 03 Jetta TDI and I am very pleased with them....QUESTION....TireRack says you cannot use OE VW hubcaps for these wheels/rims....Besides looking for 15" hubcaps is there some other criteria I need to know for a hubcap to fit on the steelies?....Thanks
Monday, November 25, 2013 by ben@tirerack

Many OE hubcaps have holes for the lug nuts to go through. Most of the steel wheels that we sell are designed for a hubcap that fits over the lug nuts instead and clips on to the edge of the wheel. Other than that, there is nothing special to look for.

hI I HAVE A 2006 audi s4 and wanted to see if these steels would work on my car with snow tires. The kicker is that I have the bigger brakes than the typical a4. is this an issue and could it still work?
Thursday, September 25, 2014 by ben@tirerack

Mark, the big brakes can be an issue. If you use the 'winter snow tire and wheel package' link above it will show you all available wheels that can fit your Audi.

The Winter Snow Tire and Wheel Package does not list any "steel" wheels for my 2015 VW GTI. Are they no longer offered?

Looking for winter steel wheels for 2016 GTI. Last week you had them, today Sept. 16 you don't list them. Are you just out of stock or you're not carrying them anymore?

Will this wheel fit on my 2003 Benz e500? It has same hole pattern 5x112. Looking to find steel wheels to put studded tires on for the winter.
Monday, August 21, 2017 by Tire Rack Team


We do not have any steel wheels that will work on your E500, they are the right bolt pattern but offset of the wheels and shape of the brake caliper play in as well. The least expensive currently is around $100 (price and availablity accurate 8/19/17) and would be an alloy wheel:
