    Hi recently purchased a set of 18" twin spoke alloys for my a6 unfortunately made the school boy error of not checking pcd
    mine is 5x112 new alloys 5x120 has anybody used these are there any side affects and where would be the best place to get them
    Thinking of selling them and looking for a correct set
    any advice would be welcomed

    You could make them fit with hub adapters. If they are available and suit the offset

    people have been using hub adapters for years, i mean prob over 10 years now, so if they were fatal they wouldnt be around. make sure you get hub centric ones and you will be fine. FK or H&R are prob the most common out there. Hopefully get my Porsche wheels on the B7 today if i get time which will be on adapters

    I've got range rover alloys on my 8L A3, 5x100 to 5x120 adapters used, speak to David and R&R alloys, he'll make any size adapters you want to suit your needs and is very reasonable priced. His work is spot on too!
