    New wheels don't fit (help)

    Bought a 2nd hand set of S6 19 rims off gumtree, came off an A6, went to fit and the locating centres are larger on the new rims so are sloppy, are all Audi Vw etc not all the same size? do i require adaptors?

    Cheers folks

    Up until now I thought all Audis had the same bore size. If you still have your old wheels you could measure the internal diameter but they're pretty precise with their sizes so may well not be accurate enough.

    Either way you should be able to get spingot rings of the correct size.
