Any mk1 production models with >13" wheels?

Post by the edmundator » Fri Jan 31, 2014 3:20 pm

A question for the mk1 anoraks:

were any production models (any international market) of the mk1 sold with a wheel of larger diameter than 13"? I think the Junior Cup cars came with 15" ATS Cups, but I'm not sure that they will count for my purposes.

Not that im aware of, a check of an old copy of etka would probably tell you, actually i still have an old vw paper parts catalogue from 1979 so i will see what that says

The old brochures on Drivers Found website do not show anything smaller than 13".

I was after greater than 13"...

I'm not really sure whether there's an appropriate series yet. Of the regs I've looked at, a lot require you to keep standard wheel diameter from production, hence 13" on a Mk1... unless I can convince them that 15" on the Junior Cup car is acceptable.

Cups aside - 5.5 x 15 on the Cup cars Ed, - the answer is No.

Also checked the drivers found brochures - http://www.driversfound.com/scirocco/

Hello!

Probably of little point ( because I cannot find the literature) but I think there was a dealer option of 14" steelies...

Absolutely positive I read this somewhere and I will have another look through the VAG literature I have, I read it somewhere !!!

Happy to be corrected, do not think I have my wires crossed though...

Standard OEM supplied alloys were all 13" though, with just the width differing throughout the range.
