    you could try ' Roadhouse wheels' in leighton Buzzard.... they're a major wheel supplier so if anyone was to have them, they would..

    wheel spacers usually come in a minimum 15 - 20mm to change PCD which will stick the wheels out an extra 15-20mm. to cancel this out so the wheels sit under the arches as normal u would need an offset of about ET50 minimum which is very rare.

    just thought id let u know. i had a look at changing from 5x110 to 5x120 for some bmw wheels.

    So how does fitting spacers let you change the PCD from 110 to 100? I know with wobbly bolts you can get about 2mm either way with PCD, but can't picture how a spacer lets you get such a large change as the bolts still have to sit in the wheel hubs!

    Can somebody explain?

    If it's just a spacer,you get longer bolts that bolt through to the hubs. If it's a hub adapter, you bolt the adapter onto the hubs first, then bolt your wheel to the studs on the adapter.
    5x110 adapters are rare, cos there's very little demand for them - most common are the Golf & Porsche sizes - 4 x 100 to 5 x 112, 5 x 112 to 5 x 130, 4 x 100 to 5 x 130... etc etc.

    as above.
    u bolt the adapter to the hub using flush bolts, then the wheels fit to the adapter, either using the studs on the adapter or using more bolts.

    i know u can get 5x110 to 5x120 and 5x110 to 5x130.

    And they can fit into the hub threads okay even though the bolts must be at a slight angle?

    That's what I was thinking - that the adapter had flush bolts that went into the hub first, then the wheel bolts into holes on the adapter - but I then thought that there wouldn't be much depth (only the 10-15mm of the adapter) for the wheel bolts to go into. It didn't sound much - but I guess it's enough, and strong enough? Just sounded a bit 'iffy'.

    the thinnest pcd adapter plates i have found are 20mm, that will be enough to bolt to.

    "If it's just a spacer,you get longer bolts that bolt through to the hubs." - - i think he was talkin about standard spacers here, the bolt holes will line-up. just used to lower the offset of the wheels (i.e make the wheels stick out further.)

    Ah that's what confused as we had been talking about altering PCD. I see what he was saying now!!
