Hi guys,

Im a new member and hoping one of you guys may be good enough to have a scan at my wheels to see if you can tell me what they're off. Had the buggy for about 10 years but don't know much about the wheels. The rear hubs have been re-drilled so I'm pretty certain they're not VW - certainly not wide 5's - much narrower pattern.

Im after new hubs for my restoration so could do with a bit more info on the type of wheels / stud pattern (I'm not near the car at the moment) before I can buy new hubs etc for it.

Thanks in advance

They look like revolution wheels possibly in jag/ chevy 5 stud at a guess see what the rest think.

Your wheels are indeed Revolution 5 spokes,  The front wheels are drilled for 2 different 4 bolt PCDs, the 4 holes you are using on the front are 4x130 pcd.  Your rear wheels are 5x130 PCD (porsch pcd) ,  As far as I remember the 130 pcd is the only one where the recess for the washers breaks through the outer edge of the centre circle of the wheel.   I use the same wheels on my Buggy
Have fun. Be lucky

That's really handy, thanks for the info. The fronts have been re-drilled, a bit too close to the other holes IMO so may swap them as part of the rebuild.

Now I know the fitment I can order some new hubs, not sure if they do 4 x 130 or whether I'll need to order blanks and have them drilled but I'll have a look on the usual sites.

Thanks again for the info, hope you're having a good weekend.

4X130 is the standard 4 bolt pcd for a Beetle

You know it really would be worth measuring those rears before ordering hubs just to make 100% certain
