Trailer Tires
« on: December 21, 2014, 06:07:26 PM »
I was hoping to get a set of cheap trailer tires and the parts guys look at me like I am speaking Greek.  I need a rim with a 5 x 205 bolt pattern.  What cars did those come on?  I tell them old VW bugs but still the confused look.
Thanks

As far as  know, old VW's were the only ones to use 5X205. Try and find a parts guy that is old enough to know what an original beetle is........
