some places won't put 235 75 15's on the stock vw rims because they are too narrow, are there any other rims that would fit, like vw rabbit rims or something, just wider than the regular 4.5 inchers.....

i forgot to mention walmart has the wrangler radials on sale for 79 bucks, but you local tire shop will beat that price if you show them the add online or whatever. good tires for the price and for those of us on a budget.... which is probably most of us. the tires are around 29 inches tall.

No go for Rabbit rims which are 4 on 100 mm. I installed my last set of 33x9.50 15s by hand. Takes about 10 minutes a tire. Most non copoorate tire shops will install them for you.

I actually got my tires for 69 from a local shop who beat walmarts price. but their install price was 16 per tire, walmarts is 6, or something like that so it came out about the same.,,,, when you put tires on yourself do you use a crow bar or something or just stand on them until they slip on or what?

The way I do it is a tire iron, a big screw driver, and a rubber mallet. I've put a LOT of tires on rims.

Standard 5 lug or 4 lug VW Bug rims are 4" wide. But they will easily hold 235s. Offroad racers in Class 10 (unlimited chassis with 2 liter engines) and 12 (unlimited chassis with VW-type beam front suspension and 1776 in single seater or 1835 in 2 seater) use 33x 10.50 tires on 4" rims all around their cars. But there are a lot of aftermarket wheels which fit on VW 4 lug. The chrome Mangels wheels come in 4.5 and 5.5" width. There are Centerline wheels, white or chrome spoke or quite a few cast aluminum wheels. But if you're looking for wrecking yard swaps, there aren't any others I know of which use the same 4 lug pattern. Water cooled VWs as indicated above use a smaller 4 lug pattern. the VW Sport wheels that BibleThumpinCop has on his Class11 look sedan are 4.5" wide. They came with some VW option packages in the mid 1970s.

Yes you can drop the PSI with tires on a the thin rims too. the odds of it poping the bead are much less. on the same tire with an over wide rim. you will need more PSI in the tire to keep it on the bead etc. Also if you do pop it off the over wide you might have a harder time getting it back on with out a tire strap etc. and most people do not take stuff like that with them hen off roading.

And we will not talk about the rocks etc. that will find the lip of the rim that stick out or even with the tire wall.

sweet, thanks for the info, I knew class 11 used the rims but not all those others, awesome, i actually found some vw rims at a local shop today for 7 bucks a piece, so i'm going that route, i'm also using the same size tire all the way around so a spare can be used anywhere, that is when i have money and a place to mount one Rolling Eyes I saw the sickest baja bug driving around where i work today, an a arm american flag painted baja, i swear it had 30 + inch tires on it maybe like 33's i don't know. I going to try and locate him and turn him onto this awesome site.
