Hello! I'm new the forum and I thought making a thread for my beetle would be a good way to start things!

Hope you like!

How narrow is your beam? I did 5", and with the Marathon wheels, they sit WAY in there. I love the look of your setup!

Its a stock width beam mate Smile with extra camber ajustors so the wheels clear the arches.

Hope that helps.

I'd recommend a wink mirror to anyone! The visibility is soooo good! I can see out the rear windows in the mirror!
