Type 3 wheels were all "wide five" (5 bolt 205mm PCD) bolt pattern, until the 1966 model year, when the introduction of disc brakes meant a change to a smaller (4 bolt 130mm PCD) bolt pattern. It's also easy to fit other types of wheel by using parts from our range of re-drilled discs and drums, wheel adapters and spacers.
Our range of original style steel wheels for VW Type 3 includes both early 5-stud and later 4-stud versions. We also supply a range of fully chromed 4 and 5 stud O.E. wheels, for those looking for a little more impact from the stock style.
We stock all the most desirable aftermarket rims in our range of VW Beetle alloy wheels, including BRM, Fuchs, EMPI 5, EMPI 8, Sprintstar, Porsche, Enkei & ATS styles. What’s more we have many of these designs produced exclusively for us, reconfigured to better fit Type 3s and to last longer. Most designs are available in painted, chromed or polished finish, and all our exclusive ‘SSP’ range come with a two year structural guarantee!
Aside of the wheels themselves, we stock a huge selection of trim, hubcaps, clips and rivets. We also supply just about every size and type of wheel bolt and stud you could wish to find, including mag nuts and Thatcham-approved locking nuts/bolts. And if compatibility is an issue, check out our wide range of wheel adaptors and spacers.
