    Wheel fitment question

    Seen some alloys I want, very nice etc,

    I know I'll need some adapters as bolt pattern is 5x120 but thats not the issue. ET 11 all around. Bolt pattern 5x120 Hub centre is 72.6mm. Is there anyway to get these on 8L S3 hubs?

    Thanks

    is the center bore correct for the s3 ? if so then you just need some PCD adaptors, search that on google and youll find loads, try venommotorsports website

    if the center bore is wrong (if it is too small for your car) you can take it to a local engineering company and get them to bore the centers out to a bigger size

    Nope, not with an ET of 11 I'm afraid. The thickness of the 5*100 / 5*120 adaptors will decrease the ET by another 15 or 20mm so you'll have an effective ET of -4 to -9.

    The only realistic way you can get wheels and adaptors to work is when the original wheel has a high offset (e.g. 45) which is then reduced by the adaptor to 30 - 25, which is in the range of what fits.
