Wheels

Post by Lukeh17 » Sun Apr 13, 2014 3:29 pm

I have been looking for the original wheels for my MK2. I found the brochure for the car and it says 6x14 steel (16 holes).

Any idea where I could get these from?

I think they was also fitted to mk2 golfs of the same age, they might have different centre covers but I think you can get hold of them as well.
I did a quick search of eBay and found one like this, I bought some for my mk1 golf as winter wheels, I paid £35 for 4 with 2 good tyres so theses ones in the link are expensive so might be best to search for some others at a better price.

Cheers for the reply, the wheels I have seen in the brochure don't have that centre part and also you can do a suitability test on those tyres at the bottom and my car doesn't match!! They are similar to what I have seen though.

Thanks again

I have the wheels now. Just a quick question. I need to order the centre wheel caps and wheel nut caps. Could I fit the wheels before fitting these or would I need them all at the same time?

Cheers

Yes, you can fit the wheels without the trims. All the ones I've seen just clip onto the bolt heads

Thanks. I did think that was the case but was just checking.

Is it the witches hat type centre cap you need?

If it is, I have 4 you can have.

The black centres come in two types. The early ones have separate bolt head covers and the main black centre bit needs to go on before you fit the bolts. The all-in-one later type just clip in on the centre of the wheel after you've attached it.

My caddy had the ones where the bolt caps were separate. They still just push on once the wheel was bolted up. I think the arosa my other halfs daughter drives has them too (its a mix of whatever i could get hold of) and they go on after the bolts
