    Saab alloys will bolt straight on. Merc and Audi rims need wobbly bolts and I'm sure Merc rims need a bit of machining.

    Sorry mate, thats all I know. There are a few guys with Audi wheels on, try a search for Audi and see what it throws up.

    Bigger is not always better. Ride quality may be a lot harsher with bigger.
