The 5x100 bolt pattern is used on many water-cooled Dubs from the late-1990s to the mid-2000s. I had BBS wheels from a limited edition Jetta and Karmann Ghia disc brakes. A problem I encountered was the Ghia brakes had a larger hub than the hub-hole of the wheels. I had to have two of my BBS wheels machined to accommodate.

Although these wheels look similar to the BBS wheels I had, they may not be so easy to machine. Heck, I don't know how easy mine were to machine or how lucky I was to stumble across someone who would do it for me. Anyway, it may be something to look into before you get to the uh-oh stage I had reached once upon a time.

Good luck.
