Good day...
You and most R5 drivers in South Africa ;)

Here they are scares, but pop up now and then.
A friend of mine found one for me by accident.
I would contact scrap yards, gumtree and independent workshops that work on touaregs.

Yes, that's what I am finding, I have tracked one wheel down in the UK (where I brought it originally - have now imported to Oz) but need wheels a bit closer, hopefully. I have spent a fair bit of time looking around for them ontinternet but nothing so far. Seen plenty of 5x130's

Jip. Took me ages to find one. I went one size bigger on the rubber to 265/65 R17 so the biscuit could no longer be used.

I luckily found a canyon 5x120 rim (same as my factory rims) and I Now keep it on the roof rack. (It takes too much space in the boot)

I am proud of my attachment method - it doesn't move but as an added safety I have used a ratchet strap as well.

Yep, that's what I have done, gone for 265x65's. Will cross the on top/Back/Inside bridge when I get there in terms of carting the spare about. Yep the biscuit is a lame excuse for a spare. Also installed Seikel suspension which is the dogs!

If they are from your V6 then they are the wrong PCD 130 mm , these guys need 120 mm

as long as the offset and rim width is close. Else you mess up the suspension geometry.
