    Help

    Hi, I just purchased a couple of trebl steel wheels. 6.50j 5x112.....after having them fitted on, realised the wheel centres are raised more than the original wheels.... Looking for new wheel trims now.....considering the raised wheel centres. Any suggestions welcome. Apologies if in the wrong thread.

    You don't say what offset these steel wheels have.

    Mytyres list:

    Alcar 9535 6Jx16 ET50 5/112 57.1 for 31.70

    and

    Alcar 9915 6.5Jx16 ET50 5/112 57.1 for 35.

    Both are 14-hole designs and are made for the VW Golf MK5 and MK6 amongst many other cars. Oponeo also list them, but Oponeo are more expensive.

    I expect you will want to use 205/55R16 tyres with either of these rims, with the 6J giving a more comfortable ride compared to the 6.5J rim, ie. a narrower rim gives a softer ride as it helps the sidewalls flex more easier. Many car manufacturers are now fitting 205/55R16 tyres to 6J rims rather than 6.5J rims for this very reason.

    If you have the equivalent of the Alcar 9915, then you could search part number 1T0601147C for 16" VW wheel trims on ebay and elsewhere.

    Also see a VW online catalogue for genuine VW part numbers:
