BTW, you can run 15s with collector plates aswell.  Just in case you didn’t know that.

the way I understood it was if your car came with 13" wheels you can only go 1"bigger and wider.Did I get that wrong?

You can go 1” bigger then what was available on that model.  GTIs came with 14s so you can go 15”.

14s will look good but a 15” wheel will greatly open your options

AirCooledRules is right.
Just got my Collector plates and was ok to increase wheel size by 1"
Wheels do have to be somewhat period correct, think within a few years but not positive.

Let's see a pic
Love them

My 80 GTI came with 13" factory mags.14"(snowflakes) were on the 83/83 GTI's.I am not sure who looks at the pics at ICBC and if they really know what they are looking at.I might have found a set of 14"Montreal rims that look like they would pass.

I don’t think it matters.  Oldschooluser ( Miguel ) has 16” wheels on his collector plates 1987 Jetta coupe and no 1987 jetta coupe came with 15s.  The only cars with 15s was the 16v sedans. So I think you are fine with 15s
