Hi anyone know what the correct serial no for a 17"x 7.5 rim thats 5 stud & studs measure 130 ctr to ctr using the black measuring gauge the wheel shops/wreckers use ?

Got 4 with the no 7L6601025B that fit my 2014, (these are my 4wd wheels) but not sure if there are other 17's with a different serial no's that will also fit ?

Thanks

VW have made several different patterns of 17" 5x 130 to fit Touareg - the Tangis I bought for my winters are ET 55 - be aware that VW also made/make 17" rims for cars but not load-rated high enough for the Touareg.

Thanks noobytoogy, so ive got this right, so long as i find a 5 stud, 130 ctr rim, it will fit ? (obviously as long as its still a 17"x 7.5 rim)

The serial no wld then become irrelevant, other than representing a different style of rim/size ?

Only hard thing is without one of those gauges no one knows what the studs measure

The only other thing to look at if getting non VW rims is the offset. Wheels are made in a variety of offsets to suit the particular application. I do not know the offset of the Touareg rims.

After-market 17" rims MIGHT foul the calipers, the clearance on the VW ones is very tight and a more general design might not fit - so, if it's not on that list from Nooby have a trial fit before committing to purchase.

Also, an after-market rim may have a different centre bore.

OK, found some rims that arent on the list, with serial no 7L6601025A, (original 17's) pitch is OK 5/130

Still have ET 55 which i believe relates to the bore size of 71.5mm ? Also have 7.5J X 17H2

Anyone know if these will fit, or have a list with these on it ?

Google is your friend - using your part number this webpage comes up, referring to Touareg Spare Parts vw- parts directory

ET55 is the offset dimension (55mm)
