    Guys,

    Looking to get some wheels which are 5x112 18x8.5" ET35.

    Which are the best to go for and what spacers will I need?

    I've seen some on eBay which are 20mm, will they work?


    Cheers all,

    Ryan

    you need some hub-centric spacers, go for H&R ones they arent cheap but otherwise you will get wheel wobble, badly

    The adapter kits are hubcentric mate. They bolt into the original 5x100 bolt pattern and then the wheel bolts into the 5x112 pattern on the adapter/spacer.

    I was just asking if a 20mm kit (making ET 35, ET15) would be ok with 8.5" width wheels with 225 tyres on?...

    Anyone?

    Cheers,

    Ryan

    Hey man,

    I've got some 8.5's coming that are ET35 too, I was going to wrap them in 225s and space the front out 11mm and space the rears out 16mm ending up at ET24 at the front and ET 19 in the rear.

    Using this as a starting block and adjusting from there.

    This thread was created mostly to gather info on the PCD adapters.

    I think I may have to pass on the wheels if I can't find a set of adapters to fit :(

    ET35 wheels and 10mm front, 15mm rears work well with 18x8.5" wheels apparently.

    Yes it will work, but I'd try and find some 15mm hub adaptors personally, but that's just me.

    I bought the very same adaptors off eBay mate and i had no problems at all. Well made, quick delivery and worked perfectly.

    Id recommend them highly rather than pay over the odds for H&R ones. Badge tax imo!

    I've no found the FK adapters on eBay.

    How much are the Go Automotive adapters?

    It's a killer having to pay the best bit of £200 just to get some wheels to fit!

    Sorry mate meant to write fk . Yep but personally I'd say u shouldn't have brought et 35 alloys as the minimum fk adapter size is 15mm with a bore size of 57.1 so u might need spigot rings to fit these new alloys you have brought. Go on main website they are cheapest

    The wheels are 57.1 centre bore, so no worries there.

    ET35 with 15mm spacers will make them ET20 with 225/40/18 tyres, should hopefully be fine?!...

    The car will be lowered on new OEM shocks with H&R -25mm springs.

    Opinions lads, should I be ok?

    Ryan :)
