What is the correct size tire & rim for a 73 Bug?
i usto own a couple of bugs...i remember using 15" tires...
It has more to do with the wheel offset or width. OEM is about 205 in width and a zero offset rim. Use the tirerack.com fitment application
The original size the fits your car is 165R15.
and the orignal rim size is 15x4.5
