Are all VAG 5-bolt wheels the same offset/width? Specifically, can I use one of the 15" steel "winter rims" from my 1994 VW Jetta GLX as a full-size spare in my soon-to-be delivered 1999 A4? (And I guess that would allow me to use one of the 15-inch BBS Jetta "summer rims" as a winter spare...)<p>TIA,<p>Jason
There are a few different 5-bolt applications in the VW/Audi parts bin... I've heard that the 5-bolt Jetta wheels were relatively interchangeable with the B4 Passat, which is totally different that the B5 Passat (and thus A4).<p>I'd call the Tire Rack (www.tirerack.com) and ask them to be sure.<p>Now if you wanted a full 15" steel spare, find 3 other A4 owners and get a set of steel take-offs from a B5 Passat. Maybe Tire Rack would sell you one.<p>AJL<br>98 Passat 1.8T

I'm about 99.99% sure that the B5 Passat is the only one in the VW line-up<br>that uses the 5x112 bolt pattern. Don't know if the new Jetta will, but not the old one.<p>Should be possible by hook or crook to get hold of a B5 take-off....
