Mercedes 8 x 16 inch alloy wheel Posted: Fri Aug 11, 2017 8:29 am     Views: 56      Rating: Not rated

8Jx16H2 ET36 five-spoke (bifurcated)

This is my preferred style and offset for a 1972~79 VW Type 2, but a rim-width of 8 inches and associated optimal tyre sizes (225 or 235 mm section-width) are TOO wide for the wheel arches!

One could use a minimum tyre section-width of 215 mm, but this might give too harsh a ride and it would be better to use this tyre size on either a 7 or 7 inch wide rim.
