    Default would these suit a Signum

    I'm looking for a set of alloys/tyres my motor and i am kinda drawn to these Audi r8 copies. I know they are vw/merc fitment but wobbly bolts and spigot rings should do the job hopefully

    They are 8.5x20", pcd 112, et35 and centre bore of 66.6mm

    Comments and any advice welcome please

    Thanks

    I don't think they will look right.

    8.5" rim and ET35? They are gonna stick out big time and look out of place.

    It is either ET43 or ET41 from factory, I can´t remember..

    But no worries m8. I have had 8.5x20ET35 on my Vectra Estate with absolutely no problems. The car is also lowered with Irmy springs. Just use 245-30/20 as the max wide for the front.
    I am more conserned about the centerbore Ø66,6mm. VX hub bore is Ø65,1mm. It must be difficuilt to make a ring from Ø66,6mm to Ø65,1mm. The ring will then only be 0,75mm thick

    Thanks for the info i noticed the pics of your vec in the other thread and your car is a stunner

    If i remember right im sure Carl-bear whom has the black/pink merc alloys used the thinnest pastic spigot ring he could find and he slowly tightend the wheel upto the hub and made the fitment that way. Hopefully he will read this and clarify for me
