Max tire size

Post by ridikas on Sat Jun 15, 2013 10:30 pm

Hey guys I finally have decided on which rims to put on my '73 standard beetle. Here is a link http://www.chircoestore.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=415_416_801&products_id=13695

What is the max size tire I can put on all 4 rims without scrubbing? Thanks!

Are you planning on keeping the factory stance or lowering it a bit?

I Like the lowered look but plan on keeping it stock. It has adjustable coil over shocks on it right now. I have them on the highest setting and there is quite a bit of gap that needs filling. I want a wider tire than the stock ones and still sit up high.

The link you posted shows a 5 x 130 bolt pattern, and your car is 4 x 130 pattern- that means you need to run adapters Mad or have your drums re-drilled

Actually they don't have the 4/130 mm. Only 5/130:shock:. What would I need to do to make them fit?

I would buy new drums drilled for the correct bolt pattern. 
Or find some wheels you like with that pattern.

I wanted to upgrade to disc all the way around. Would they come pre drilled for the 5 bolt pattern?

my local tire store i use to get all my tires wether vw , honda , or what not  usually has a way to measure for exactly what you need that way you have no issues . i use to just guess by used ones and ride and always had problems since i had a much lower stance but yet to have problems.   if you are keeping it stock height you shouldnt have issues unless going super wide or with a super big rim.!  new tires always best and are one of the most important things on a car

I like 195s but not sure if the width will scrub. What is the max width I can have on 5.5 w rims and not scrub?

195 is a good width anything over that you start pushing the threshhold on your gas milage and wear and tear 205 is the max depends on backspacing its the key to the correct tire suspension formula.

These are drums, not discs-

To upgrade to 4 wheel discs gets real expensive, and most folks only put the discs on the front

Yeah. I don't feel like shelling out 600$ for disc. All I want to do is the cheapest and safest way to be able to get my 5 lug fuch wheels on my bug.
