Can a Polo Sportline owner please help?

Post by Volkswagen » Sat Nov 21, 2009 4:29 pm

I got me this set of Sportline rims today... :cool:

They are not exactly what I wanted...I had hoped to find a set of the BBS ones but the sets that I did find were either overpriced or too far away for me to personally inspect them...

Anyway, these were found at a decent price!

So, what else do I need? Besides tyres off course :oops: I want to fit them to my Polo 2.0 so will the same wheel bolts works and how do the black plastic caps fit onto the wheel bolts etc? Is there a tool I need to include in my car as well?

Please organize part numbers as well if possible.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance :wink:

I don't think there were any differences in offset between the different Polo wheels, but just rememeber the Sportline wheels are slightly wider than the rest of the range, but nothing to be concerned about...

Stock wheel bolts should be fine, and the black caps should be available from VW as well as the little "hook" tool to remove them...

Cheers

A small enough Allen key works perfectly to remove the black caps on the wheel bolts :hi:

Hey guys!

I curently have a hook type tool to remove the centre caps of my existing rims...I am pretty sure that it would work for the black caps too.

Thanks alot for the help everyone :hi:
