    Default Anyone with Audi/VW wheels. Please help!

    It looks like I can fluke a nice set of Audi/VW wheels at a good price! Can anyone tell me how much work is involved in getting them to vet a Vec C.

    I've heard reports it's merely wobbly bolts, then also that maching and spigots are involved. I'm no expert (far from it!) so this means very little to me!

    Can anyone help me with what they have had to do to get Audi/VW wheels on their motor? They are 18" A8 style multi spokes off a Golf.

    Thanks in advance!

    they will fit, see kevs bux car, I think you need to machine the centres of genuine ones though to make them fit .. calibre coachworks also have them on there sig ..

    Yes, I believe it's the 'bore' that puts some people off. (No one likes a bore, so they say!)

    65.1 for Vec C/ Signum, and 57 point something for the VW/Audi wheels.

    Just by way of another bump, can anyone give me their feedback on having Audi wheels on thier Vectra, or indeed any type wheels that needed a bit of persuasion to go on.

    Some people shake thier head at these wobbly bolts and/or machining out the bore size. Is it all good with those who have done it?

    Is there anything else that needs to be addressed here?

    Thanks again people! Gonna post some before and after pics if I'm satisfied this will be safe enough to put ma babies in goin down the road! Got hold of some 40mm vec C lowering springs for £50 and have it booked in to get the plastics colour coded. After all that, i's getting a whole day of TLC with various substances and a dual action buffer! Here's hoping it all goes as planned!

    PS: please don't forget to leave me some opinions on puting these Audi wheels on!

    Cheers!

    There's a company called H & R who supply Hub adapters. Changes the available fitment of your vec to that of exactly what you want. I think you may have to get them made up but they can do it. Was thinking of going down this route myself when money permits!!

    VW/AUdi have 5x112 fittment and 5x100. Shouldn't the 5x112 fit 5x110 with wobblybolts? With 5x100 no chance.. But the center bore is a problem, if it's straight on for vw/audi. MB has 66,1mm isn't it? Just a little palstic spacer ring needed.

    Yes. Its a8 style wheels for a mk4 golf, I'm happening upon myself! The hub adapters are part of my scrounging operation!!! They'll leave it 5x112 like most of the Audi VW range, thus meaning wobbly bolts will get them on. The bore is adjustable with spigots on the adaptor.

    I could get a new set of custom hub adaptors at £200 odd, to leave it a perfect 5x110, but that's going against my 'bang for buck' approach!

    I may just post up this scenario to double check it's ok with those more knowledgable than I before I put human beings into the damn thing!

    The mk 4 is 5x100 you need them for a mk5 golf 5x112 Ive merc wheels waiting to go on my car. getting them to fit isnt cheap and put the price of them up more than i thought. The hub adapters will push the wheel out to the arch too much and rub like mad. If your after 19's i'm from tyrone and selling mine
