Anyone planning on upgrading to the VW 20” Black wheels for the ID.4?


I’ve been considering it but wanted to see how they looked in person first.

An alternative would be to paint your existing wheels semigloss black. The stock 19" and 20' wheels are not bad looking, and if you squint, after painting they would look a lot like the new black ones. Quite a bit cheaper and you could have the look immediately.

If I could fit those to the rear, or find wider wheels for the front, then I'd be able to have all four corners the same size that might be worth buying new wheels. Did you find a link for the rears?

If you want to change colors, I've read the easiest way to do it is with Plasti-Dip.

Thanks! That at least answers the question of whether it's possible to get four of the same size (no; the offsets are different).

I am happy with the wheels that came with my 1st edition. They really look good and I am saving big bucks by not changing them out for something different.

Dang, those would really look good on a white ID.4 for the "Panda" effect. ~$1600 is steep, though, for plain painted wheels.

Yeah, they don't really work on blue IMO. The silver roof contrast doesn't really make sense with it. Would love to see them on white. Even so, they're kind of "Atlas-y", not really sporty.

The OEM FE 20" wheels as we know are actually 1/2 black which forms a nice angled shadow line contrast to the silver flat faces (I believe the designer's intent). I am typically not a fan of black wheels but I find this contrast just right.

You could coat your OEM wheels with Plasti-Dip, or similar, just to get a feel for what they would look like. If you thereafter don't like them fairly easy to peel off.

btw: I've been a fan of Plasti-Dip for tool handles since the early 80's, with many of those tools still in service and have well stood up to the wear. I even coat the jaws of some slip-joint pliers (aka "water pumps") so as not to scratch soft brass plumbing fixtures around shower heads, etc.
