Porsche 356 / Split Bus / Beetle style steel wheels - 5x205 (wide 5

Post by Devon Heaven » Tue May 14, 2019 9:30 pm

Having a change of setup on my bus, old set of wheels that were on my bus for a couple of thousand miles only.

Porsche 356 / Split Bus / Beetle style steel wheels - 5x205 (wide 5)


Sourced new and powder coated before fitting in primer grey.


3 x 15x4.5j - two for fitting to front of vehicle and one spare (unused)

2 x 15x5.5j - fitted to rear axle.


4 used Continental Eco Contact 3 tyres which have covered just 2000 miles. The rears have loads of tread left - they look almost new and have never had a puncture or any damage at all. The two used front tyres are quite worn on the inside as the camber wasn’t setup correctly for the first 1000 miles. They are still legal and has passed a recent MOT - i am just being honest.


The spare has never been fitted to the vehicle and as such is brand new.


The details for the rims are as follows:-


15 x 4.5j https://www.karmannkonnection.com/shop/ ... l-45-x-15/

15 x 5.5j https://www.karmannkonnection.com/shop/ ... l-55-x-15/


I have the original receipts for the rims and tyres if required.


The front tyre sizes are 165/55/15

Rear tyre size is 195/65/15


The picture of the bus is as they were used and gives an idea of the look I had.


I don’t have hubcaps as it wasn’t my thing but they are readily available.


Any questions, just ask.


Collection only from Chester area or delivery by arrangement at buyers expense or could possibly meet at a vw event.
