    Default Wobbly bolts?? Audi/merc wheels???

    Ive noticed a few members av audi and merc wheels on here but the pcd is 5x112 for these and vecs are 110, how is this done, is it with wobbly bolts or are they lookalike 5x110 vec fitting wheels? Vaux wheels are so expensive for sum reason! Like snowflake wheels £500 knackered! U can get proper audi rs4/rs6 alloys mint for £300! Why are vaux fittin wheels so dear! I wud av thought it be otha way round! So if theyl fit wi wobbly bolts ill get some 19" audi wheels

    iirc the centre bore of the merc wheels need's attention too as it's to small to fit over the vectra's hub, but yes with wobbley bolt's and centre bore sorted they go on just fine

    As above Audi rims need centre bore sorting too.

    Hello.
    I run 5x112 BBS LM wheels with wobbly bolts on the 5x110 Vectra C. There were some problems with the centre bore, but it got sorted pretty easily. However, it did take some time until I found a good metalworker to fab me up a fitting bore.

    sorry.. not explaied too well.. the ford spigot diameter is smaller so would need to machine wheel... i know it seems a lot of hassle.. but you can pick up some right bargain alloys on fleabay... what i did with my rims was had them machined out to 73mm then used fox alloy spigot adapters.. this way if i sell them they'll fit any spigot size via appropiate adapter
