Default 16" vw steel wheels plus baby moon caps

HI EVERYONE IM NEW TOO THIS SITE I HAVE A 2001 PT CRUISER WANT TOO FIT OLD SCHOOL STEEL WHEELS AND HUB CAP, I WOULD LOVE TOO BUY SOME AMERICAN SMOOTHIES AND WHITE WALLS BUT THE BANK BALANCE WONT STRETCH TOO IT.
I HAVE READ SOME POSTS STATING THAT NEW VW BEATLE 16" STEELS WILL FIT WITH A 5mm SPACER ON THE FRONTS TOO CLEAR THE STRUT. ALSO THE BABY MOON CAP WHICH GIVES THE LOOK IM AFTER.
SO IS IT ANY OF THE NEW VW BEATLES STEEL WHEELS THAT FIT AND HOW DO YOU GET THE BABY MOON CAPS TOO STAY ON AS THERE IS NO HUB CAP LIP ON THE STEELS.

GREAT FORUM EVERYONE,

KEEP ROCKIN!

RONNIE.

Hey Ron, For me all caps is easy to read so I like it. But In the electronic post world this is considered shouting and rude. Now I know you had no idea or intentions. So next time go regular. Sorry I know nothing about the smoothly thing.

Hello and welcome from West Virginia!

Ronnie don't mind Danny aka busted_pt he tries to be like me on forums sometimes
(private joke amongst regular members)

The wheel pattern on the VW Wheel you are referring is 5x100mm same as PT. But I do not know what the offset is?
You can find baby moon caps on e-bay cheap.
as an example:

PT Cruiser Full Wheel Baby Moon Hub Caps Hollywood 15" | eBay

or these?

Baby Moon Wheel Covers Hub Caps 6" | eBay

But without looking at the exact wheel to see the lip and inner section it is hard for me to be more precises as which Moon cap would work?


Welcome to the forum.

Post some pictures of your PT and go to your user fill some info about yourself!

Take a look at this thread - White wall inserts?

PTcru1s3r gave great info on white-wall inserts and baby moons on VW steel wheels.
