• Wolfsburg edition hard-tops, GL models with ground effects package, Carat and Multivan models came equipped from the factory with 1" lowering springs. Therefore, the 16" wheel and tire combo can and will (on occasion) rub the inside fender lip under hard driving. They fit great, handle on the highway like a dream, look superb—but you may need to modify your driving style. In addition, these wheels and tires will not fit in the stock spare tire position. This note does NOT apply to any year of 2WD or 4WD Westfalia Camper or 7-Passenger Vanagon. It only applies to factory-lowered vehicles.
• This wheel/tire will not fit in the spare tire holder.
You will need to remove two 11mm courtesy bolts on each of your rear brake drums, as they interfere with these new steel wheels. These bolts are non-essential and their removal poses no danger whatsoever!
14" Spare: If you plan to keep (and potentially use) your 14” steel wheel spare, you will need to keep one set of your original steel wheel hardware in the event of needing to use your spare.
16" Spare: This 16" wheel will not fit in the spare tire bay without modification to the bay.
