The Volkswagen Passat has been in the Volkswagen lineup for almost three decades following the expansion of the company to produce more vehicles other than the long running Beetle and the Golf. As a mid-size sedan, the Passat falls between the small Golf and Jetta and the Phaeton. Upon first look, anyone could say that the vehicle is a stunning beauty. With curves and design relatively unique from other VW, the Passat makes a great difference among the Ford Mondeo, Vauxhall Vectra, Peugeot 407, BMW 3 Series, Honda Accord, Mazda6, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Volvo S60, its rival.
Exterior is extremely magnified with its large body and a sleek hood that houses either the 2.0-liter Value Edition or the 2.0T, or 3.6L V6-powered which produces more power. The interior houses the whole family of 5 comfortably. The cargo room provides a large space giving more space for more baggage. And with this kind of load and capacity, it is just right to give proper attention to the specific parts that carry the whole weight of the vehicle- the wheel.
The VW Passat offers 16 inches steel wheels with 215/55R16 all-season radial to keep it on the road. The 2.0T has 16-inch Catalunya alloy wheels with all-season tires. Special optional package can upgrade the wheels to 17-inch Le Mans alloys with 235/45R17 all-season tires with additional cost.
Volkswagen Passat wheel is made from durable and reliable steel which is able to withstand road punishments and tests of time. The high quality casting and smooth finish project much needed effect on the overall image of the exterior. The strong alloy aids to improve handling by reducing unsprung weight. Chrome Passat wheels are even better when installed on the vehicle. For replacements, several independent wheel manufacturers offer top class wheels that would definitely serve both the vehicle and driver.
