u wouldnt need spacers if u get a 9.5/10 wheel in the rear with a low offset. u can get 5x114 wheels and have em re-drilled, but most of the time its not worth it.

Dont want to deal with re-drilling. Just more cost there.

well im not getting a 10" wheel, and if I get a 9.5 with a +40 offset I will need the spacers.

i see, then it'll probably be impossible for you to find. volks are an import brand in the first place, so it's only right they are made for imports. and the replica's are geared towards them. as for the width, i don't know if you're going to find 9.5 rears. that's not a common size for imports really. or should i say, not many people can run them.

if you're set on getting the reps, you can look into redrilling them. just look for something that's like 5 x 114 (or 114.4) so it's not that much off when they redrill. that might help you a lot more than just looking for 5x120

that doesnt make sense, an import is an import. Hondas, Toyotas, etc are 'imported' from Japan. BMW's, Mercedes, etc are 'imported' from Germany.
