Default 5 Dope Wheels for Your Volkswagen

The right wheel can make or break a car, and when it comes to Volkswagens, some wheels simply work better than others.

When it comes to wheels for your Volkswagen, here are five choices that we think will enhance the look of any VW.


BBS wheels have strong ties to German performance, particularly the RS, which was a staple of the 1980s. For a modern-day VW, we like the RS-GT, which takes the basic theme of the RS and gives it a modern, updated look.

Available in a wide variety of finishes, bolt patterns and widths, the RS-GT can be had in 18, 19 and 20-inch diameters.

Shop for your BBS RS-GT wheels here.

OZ Allegerita

We like a lot of OZ wheels, and the Allegerita is a favorite of ours, not only for its clean, lightweight look, but for the broad variety of color choices — everything from basic silver, black and white to electric blue, lime green and bright orange. In total, there are 10 different colors to choose from with sizes ranging from 16- to 18-inches. This is a functional wheel that will add lots of visual interest to your VW.

Enkei FD05

The double-spoke look works well Volkswagen sedans and hatchbacks, and we like the way the Enkei FD05 carries it off—there’s just enough detail in the spokes to add some visual interest (with both black and gunmetal finishes, so you can decide how much attention to draw to the spokes), and enough open space to show off the binders.

The Enkei FD05 is available in 15- to 18-inch diameters.

Borbet CA

If you haven’t got big brakes on your VW, you might want to close up the openings in the wheel a bit, and that’s something the Borbet CA does nicely—it’s a contemporary wheel that doesn’t give too much of a peek behind the curtain, and it looks great with most of VW’s body styles. Sizes range from a tiny 14-inches up to 17-inches in diameter.

Plain Steel

If you’re willing to get a bit creative, the plain-jane steel wheel can work really well for your Volkswagen—they give a down-to-earth look that recalls VW’s heritage as the People’s Car. The all-black look works for drag racing, but we’d recommend painting them—get creative with colors and you can establish a truly unique look for your car.
