    Ive been offered a set of wheels i rebuilt for a friends 'rocco a couple of years back.
    They are 5x112 and 8.5 wide in 19 inch ET30.
    My question is it even possible to fit these wheels with adapters? Whats the limit of what will clear the bodywork?
    I currently run standard S3 wheels with 15mm spacers at the rear and 12mm on the front,
