The iconic VW Beetle, known by enthusiasts and the industry as the Type 1, is probably one of the most influential and underrated performance vehicles of all time. It’s underrated because the car only produced between 36 and 60 hp, depending on which model you had.
I recently purchased a set of wheel adapters that allow the older five bolt VW rims to be installed on the four bolt VW pattern. The adapters have a small centre bore which therefore allows any modern tire shop to balance five bolt wheels. Without the adapter installed, modern tire shops can not balance the five bolt pattern. The centre bore is simply too large. I can loan my adapters to any bona fide KW Club member if they will pick up.
