2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Wheels, Part II
November 14, 2012
So the other day I might have mentioned that I wasn't a big fan of our swap to the disc wheels on our long-term Beetle Turbo. I might have even called them hideous, but I can't recall.
Yesterday we took the Beetle back to the track to re-test it with its new wheels and Continental ContiProContact tires (numbers coming soon).
While checking to make sure all the lug nuts were tight, we had to take off those disc hubcaps.
Here's what we found:
Hello, there's your good-looking wheels, hoss!
Can't tell you how close we were to NOT putting those things back on.
