Best damn wheels for a bug IMO (Old picture, my zeros are in a box currently):





Iíd agree with best oem wheels. I still think Advan RCIIís are the best looking aftermarket on a bug.

Just arrived yesterday . Donít usually go for eBay stuff but the quality seemed good and for $26.99 I was willing to take a chance. Real leather, nice stitching and embroidery is Iíd say 8.5 outa 10. All in all a nice tasteful upgrade from the cheap oem one I have thatís torn.

Champ that full resto looks mint. More photos when you get it home. Did you go a hair darker than world rally blue or is it the lighting?

Just got the boot glued to the frame and it pressed fittings back into the console piece. STI trim piece is loosely sitting on top for a pic. Still have to bead blast it , re clear it and clean up the hardware. Pretty stoked about the way it looks. Next to polish and re burn my ARC knob. The holes to line up and match the frame shape awere perfect, even the little cut outs for the mounting bolts to pass by were there spot on.

That turned out.

For 27 I might have to try one of those. The sti boot I have arrived with a nice fat cigarette burn which the seller forgot to mention and he somehow took photos that hid the burn perfectly.

Thatís the link. Took a month to finally get here but 3/4 that time it sat in customs. I believe you can pick from a bunch of colors if you prefer something else. Guys English is pretty broken but was friendly and helpful.

I do not have an instagram for it (Not really on social media myself). TBH, the car has been less of a priority now that I work from home full time and only drive it a handful of times each month.

Understandable. If you ever decide to sell those wheels, you need not look any further than me.

Beautiful bugeye. I never liked WRB but when itís accompanied by oem ad ons and left clean like that I love it.


Hereís a few of the items Iíve gathered during the pandemic as my bugeye virus has risen to stage 4 terminal.

Outstanding collection! Acceptance is definitely a necessary. Just turned 43 and I donít have any intention of stopping. I actually find it much much more enjoyable as I get older then I did in my 20ís.

New Super Pro front control arms for my bugeye showed up today, great quality by initial looks of it. New tie rods coming from them as well.

Nice haul. I've been running their tie rod ends, ball joints, and other bushings (which are readily sourced to me through the Do-Luck webshop) since putting on coils and lowering for the past 4 years. They are fantastic.
