    I cant help i'm afraid Gav but I'm sure last time I looked into adapters they worked out at about £300!!! The ones I wanted were only to get the S4 wheels to fit too!

    I just had a look on egay for "hub adapters 5x100" and got quite a few for £135. I think the S4 wheels may be back on the cards :)

    Easy peezy bud, you need 35mm 5x100 to 5x130 adaptors, this set up will keep them tucked in with an overall offset of et32:)

    I don't understand any of this offset stuff either. The adapters I was looking at do 5x100 (S3) to 5x112 (S4 wheel I believe?) and they are 15mm adapters. The S4 wheel is et45 I think, which is the same as the S3, so I'm guessing that with the 15mm adapters on the wheels they won't stick out too far?
