You have to be kidding me!!!! The exact same thing happened to me yesterday! This is crazy! The only thing I can figure out is they made the brake calipers bigger in 92-93. I'm looking for wheels that fit now.

This is why:
90-91 255 mm diametre, 22 mm thick, 54 mm centrebore
92-93 277 mm, 25 mm, 54 mm

Post-revision GT and GTS got the same size front rotors as the All-trac, albeit with different (single- versus dual-piston) calipers.

Move down here to no-snow land. lol

On a serious note, that really sucks. It's hard enough trying to find something with our lug pattern.

Everything has 5x100 it seems like...shouldn't be a problem. You can always take it to the tire shop and get some ghetto steelies for real cheap. (what I'm considering...though I'd rather not. )

Well, given the GTS came with 15" wheels, I'm going to guess.... 15" wheels.

VW 5 lug wheels will fit. The only difference is that they will be lug centric and not hub centric as the VW hubs are bigger. If the 14" wheels don't fit then you must move up to a 15"
