If you going to Baja it you can scrounge up a free or cheap bent beam you can widen it. For a stock fendered Bug you can also just beat the edges of the body and pan flat and live with the noise. This one is 9" wider. Three or four inches should work on your bug.



Some killer tires bought in Mexico.

Also do not use stock VW rims. get a set of the white wagon wheel type rims. You gain from 1" to 1.5" of width per side over the stock VW rims.

nice clean lookin baja james.

perrib....can you like give me those tires? those are freakin awesome..
i need some.

heres my rims...you can see how much farther they stick out than stock rims...






if you compare with perribs rims...

btw these type of rims are officially called "spoke" rims so if you search those you find what you want.
there like $50 new so there nice and cheap.

the stock ones cover up the whole brake drum. mine only cover it about 1/5 inch...you can see almost the whole drum from the front..

btw on yur question about the tires rubbing. there are two set screws that limit how far the tires can turn. so you can just crank those in a little bit and it will keep your tires from rubbing.

ahha i found the picture i was looking for.



as you can see on the left side of the beam next to the left shock tower. there is that metal tab with a bolt sticking out of it. there is another bolt below it and the arm on the steering box hits those bolts at the limits of it travel. btw my steering box is out right now but it goes just to the right of that tab.

hope that helps....
