i recommend buying tires for a VW bug. they are super cheap. 165-205/50/15 is a good size. you dont have to buy really expensive ones

i paid 60 bucks mounted balanced for two of the 165/15 vw tires.

people say they dont trust them, speed ratings dont work, but you are only going that fast for a few seconds. The speed rating is for 1hr of travel at said speed

to tell you the truth i don't know. I have two sets of weld DL's They are thinner than my 15x5s.........could be 15x3.5 - 15x4

The tires that came with the wheels are Lemans tires 165R15/86T

I like the idea of VW tires

I think the main thing with vw wheels is the load rating not the speed rating....At max pressure the tires still look low due to the weight.
