2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Wheels. All Of Them
November 12, 2012
I imagine Volkswagen is trying to be a bit retro with the Beetle's thin-rim steering wheel.
It's got to be the thinnest of any steering wheel I've used in recent memory. Which is odd at a time when most wheels seem to be getting nicer. And by nicer, I mean thicker and with better quality materials.
I'm not saying the Beetle's wheel should be as thick as a BMW M wheel (which are always awesome), but retro or not, it would be nice to have a little something more to hold onto than this. Especially since this is the Turbo model.
As for the Beetle's other wheels
My personal opinion is that these new disc wheels we recently put on the car are pretty hideous. Your opinions may differ. And that's okay.
