    Hi guys. Ive found some wheels i like and was wondering if they would fit on an s3. They are a 5x100 stud pattern but a 56mm centre bore. So will these fit on my car? Any help would be great thanks guys. Daz

    Nope, S3's have a 57.1mm centre bore. Would have to get the wheels milled to larger bore or get some custom spacers

    Thanks for your reply. I found that but was double checking. No idea if milling it out is safe or cost effective. Thanks again for your help

    Aslong as their is sufficient material around the bore i can see that removing 1.1mm of material will cause any issues.

    Lol. They are from an mg zt. They are 18inch and kind of like bbs ch's ive seen loads on ebay with good tyres go for under 200 quid. I quite like the design and im doing them gloss black which will cost another 200 min.
