For our 2019 e-Golf, I would like to obtain a steel wheel for a spare, preferably one that would be suitable as a driving tire.
Searching various sources leads me to confusion as to part number.
I find these options among others –
5Q0-601-027-BG-03C listed as "16, w/ e-Golf" at $139 (MSRP $215)
5Q0-601-027-BT-03C listed for Arteon at $83 or $56+shipping
5C0-601-027-C-03C "fits your vehicle" at $51.11+ shipping
Big differences in cost!
Are these wheels really different, or do all fit the e-Golf, and the Ecopia EP422 Plus 205/55 R16 91H tires ? [ Rim = 6.5jx16 ET46 ]
We are concerned for any possible differences in offset dimension or valve stem hole, etc.

Also, I see 2 different "Spare Tire Bolt"s – 99 mm 5G0803899, and 127 mm 5Q0803899.
Which fits the full size wheel & tire? I suspect that the 99mm may be for the temporary mini-spare?

And, what is recommended for the valve stem? Options vs VW's expensive one?
Can local tire shop provide a suitable pressure sensor?
Any issue with driving with plain old valve stem?

You don’t need a tire pressure sensor. The system works with rotation speed.

It appears you are in USA it might be better if you visit a dealer there and talk to their parts department to get part numbers.
I always carried a space saver wheel and jack etc, in fact it’s currently listed in the for sale section as I’ve sold my e-golf😁

I got an 18" Golf space saver wheel & tyre off ebay due to the already pathetic boot size especially if you've got Dynaudio, it's the same rolling radius as the standard in the UK 205-55/16 tyres so no issues with ABS, ESP or tyre pressure faults. The standard wheel bolts are for use with all steel or alloy VAG wheels, the ones you quoted are for bolting the wheel down in the boot which you can't anyway. You'll also need a tool kit & the foam holder that fits inside the spare wheel as I guess you won't have a jack or wheel brace either, just a bottle of moose & an inflator.

Thanks for reminding me that the TPMS is via the ABS.
I was thrown off by finding VW valve stem 1K0601361B priced at $44.60 ...

I have spare jacks laying around, good to go on that issue.

I won't mind the slight height rise on the rear floor.

I received a seller message –
"5Q0-601-027-BT-03C is for a temporary spare 3.5x18 ET25.
5Q0-601-027-BG-03C is for a full size tire 6x16 ET48"
Quite an obscure numbering system!

You can indeed hold the space saver down in the boot. You need a "BOLT G1K0803899D" which is common to VW, Audi, Skoda and Seat. There is a small cut in the bottom boot floor under which is the hole to insert the plastic bolt and give it a quarter turn to fix. Either size space saver will do. The smaller one fits without having to hack away the moulding at the back of the boot. Space saver wheels are very cheap on ebay.
