    those are the same wheels I was looking at but thinking of 20" instead if my budget allows. was just wondering what was entailed in fitting these. I seen somthing about boring the alloy to allow for the fitment difference but was wondering if the wobbly nuts would work instead. does anyone have any advice?

    Not sure but I think Alan had to get them bored to fit onto the flange and also use wobbly nuts.He will probably be around later and let you know

    I have Merc Brabus alloys on mine.
    I have had to have spigot rings made for mine (couldnt buy any in the size needed, and didnt fancy boring the wheels to fit standard rings).
    I also used 'Wobbly Bolts'.
