Are salt flat discs available to fit stock vw bug 15" 4 lug rims? I have a set of 4 lug hub cap style rims, and 4 lug Sun Bug rims that I can use. Both rims center sections bow out past the rims edge, so I feel the universal flat discs may not work. I prefer the screw on type, but the snap on type is okay also. Names of any distributors would be appreciated. Thanks.

I still am looking for an answer without buying and trying to see which ones will have the clearance and fit. Anyone else running them?

The snap on discs from mooneyes don't look right...if you must run the snap on, get the generic ones from speedway motors, they don't have a funny looking lip like the ones from moon and they're a lot cheaper.

Did you ever get a set to work and look right? I got some of the screw on ones on an ebay auction only to find that they don't clear the rear axle nuts (fronts have adequate clearance)...this is on a four lug.

When I was going to use them on my 69, I had seen where some folks used spacers to clear the axle nuts - another thing you can do it find wheels with a little less backspacing (there are about a dozen different 4 bolt wheels out there. My car originally had 3 different wheels on it.
