    yes this did seem to be the problem many people tried to help out with physical assistance by kicking hitting even a shovel but it did need that extra bit of push and shove with the hammer. Thanks for your advice.

This is because of corrosion, first jack up the vehicle and place it on secure axle stands, make sure it is safe!!!!!!!!! remove wheel nuts, find a block of wood and a large hammer. Plkace the wood on the back of the wheel hit the wood hard, turn the wheel and repeat, this will remove the wheel. do not hit the wheel directly, this will damage the wheel.

What rim size for a 215/55/16 tyre? I currently have all 4 tyres on as-supplied alloy wheels, each December I change my fronts for winter tyres, for which the tyre shop make a charge. I am thinking about...


16 is the rim size and most modern ones will take 215 tyre. Of more concern is the PCD (which dictates how holes line up) would suggest a trip to a breakers and get 4 from any VW Passat (or other) of similar age

Golf 3 gsx no powersteering , steering very stiff


Have you checked the tyre pressures. If you have no power steering a flat tyre will make tunning the wheels hard due to more turnning rsistance. Also a seized ball joint some where would also make steering hard.Hope this helps

Change of wheels and tyres on VW Golf


no i  can assure you the vw golf is very well made and will take those wheels on the car without any problems at all, it will also add a little more traction as the tyres will be wider so the car will handle the road a little better, i presume that vw are trying to rip you off as you seem a little vunerable but i think that it would not be a problem at all, hope that helps

Change of wheels and tyres on VW Golf


Well, as someone (in my younger days!) who put tires of sizes not recommended by the car manufacturer, I feel bad discouraging your son from the 'awesome' tires/wheels he wants on his VW. It is generally recommended that tire size (diameter) not vary by more than 3%. If I did my math correctly, there is a difference in the sizes (diameter) you state of 5 %. Go to 'tire rack' website for formula and info to verify my rusty math skills! The speedometer would be off, due to the larger diameter wheels, resulting in a speed indicated that would be too low (less revolutions per mile). So, besides risking a speeding ticket due to lower speed indicated on speedometer, My main concern, would be that our modern day computer controlled engines base their readings on engine and auto speed, and it will be working with false speedometer readings.

ABS Light


I would not ignore this problem. Some damage has been caused to your braking system, i doubt if is is as simple as resetting the abs sensor. You should have the wheels removed and the suspension and braking systems fully checked over either by yourself or a competent mechanic .as the grinding sound could be a symptom of a serious safety hazard.

Driving on a flat could have buckled the rim or damaged the discs, steering or suspension.

posible the bad tire broke the abs sensor or wires, look inside the tire meaning inside under the car and see if any cables goin to tire are broken and have it repair
