    Hello,yes they are reps ,its the bolt holes that don't line up but there clearly marked 5x112 i'm not that bothered tho i only bought them because the were cheap and when i say cheap i mean i got the set with 4 tyres witch are 90% for the price of one tyre so i'm now on the look out for a nice set of 19S

    ah way to far away,

    i ment a picture of the holes with a ruler or messuring tape if there reps they could have been stamped up wrong, and might be 5 x 108 rather then 5 x 112

    no not on a 5 bolt

    you draw an imaginary line round the bolts as a circle. or you can actually do it if it makes it easier. and messure from one bolt directly across the circle to the line as below

    Are there just 5 bolt holes or more? I had a set of reps which were multifit 5X110 or 5X112
