    Thanks JoJo.

    >so wrong stud pattern.

    Does this mean both the discs and calipers won't work? I have multifit 18" TT-style reps fitted if it that matters. Wheels like these http://i740.photobucket.com/albums/xx43/GuzTT/Audi%20TT/003.jpg .

    Basically the standard discs look a bit 'lost' behind these big wheels and want biggers discs. However I understand to go bigger I'll need bigger calipers. Bigger calipers usually seem extremely pricey.

    Sorry, if for the most likely stupid questions. Would be lost without this forum. Appreciate the advice.
