Tirerack shows 117 choices that will fit. Instead of changing to what was the stock size in 1984, select a size that has the most/best tire choices today. http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/results.jsp? sort=Price&autoMake=Volkswagen&autoModel=Rabbit&autoYear=198 4&autoModClar=&filterSize=All&filterFinish=All&filterBrand=All&filterSp ecial=false&filterWeight=All&filterNew=All

You can use this site to determine the correct diameter. http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

Bolt pattern should be 4x100. Standard diameter for that year was a 13"...I think the offset was 35. However, a similar rim in a 14" would provide you a wider selection of tires and would accomodate some 70 series widths that will give you a nice compromise of performance and comfort.
