    wheels from a celica with a 54mm centre bore. just trying to find something different and there are not so many people looking for 18inch celica wheels as there are looking for A3 and mk4 golf!

    going off the idea already though as reality is that it is always cheaper just to get the right thing first!!

    could you get some sort of spigot/hubcentric spacer ring that would do the job, not sure if these exist, maybe have to make one

    If you can this you could fit a set of Subaru lightweight alloys 5x 100 but 56mm centre bore, I was thinking about this when someone mentioned about the ultraleggra alloys

    Audi is 57.1 bore is it not?
    I have alloys with a 66.6 bore but have spigot rings to reduce.

    Audi is indeed 57.1. so making the hole bigger is very hard! but smaller, obviously spigots. its just that all the cool wheels for audi and golf demand a premium but other brands don't seem to as their fashions are different. I like this idea!!

    Subaru lightweight alloys 5x 100 but 56mm centre bore, I was thinking about this when someone mentioned about the ultraleggra alloys
    tbh at 1mm difference that is only .5mm to lose all round so a bit of very very careful sanding and measuring may do it
