Hi,

I have winter wheels from my 2019 Jetta that are 205/60 R16

Dealers parts guy said they will fit but online I am seeing the recommended size:

225/55 R 17 Tire for 4Motion AWD.

They both come out to almost identical height 123 vs 123.75.

Does that look correct and is it safe to use the Jetta wheels, will the speedometer be off or width too narrow?

Thanks!

I believe your overall diameter will be too low, at greater than 4% off the factory wheel/ tire combo. Your side wall height is very close, however you’ve lost an inch of wheel. At speedometer of 100kph, you’d actually be at 95.4. Load rating could also be an issue. sorry for the bad news. I dropped to a 16” winter at 215/65R16 and it’s very close to original diameter.

Thank you fellow Canadian! Very informative.. I should of got the dealer to throw in some winter wheels when I was negotiating.

I'll just sell and buy something proper.
