    Default VW bug question

    Does anyone know if wheels off a 1962 Porsche 365 fit on a 1966 VW Bug? Both are five lug. Thanks Bill

    Pretty sure they share the same bolt pattern 5x205mm.

    The Porsche wheels from 356B up to 1964 had drum brakes and have the same 5 lug pattern as a type 1 bug. In 1964 the 356 changed to 4 wheel disc and went to the 5x130mm Porsche pattern. Just a question but why are you going to run 356 rims, besides the fact that they look bad ass?

    There is a set of wheels on e-bay. If i can get them cheap enough. They have a nice look when you lower the car. Thanks Bill

    Porsches were the same way. Most of the early stuff fits Volkswagens as well as Porsches. But eventually Porsche went one direction and Volkswagen went another for the most part. A 914 with a 4 cylinder is actually a type 4 motor. The type 4 motor was in Volkswagen buses.
