    ive brought a set of 5x112 alloys and need adapters. ive seen a set for around 160 which are fk ones. was wondering does it wear the bearings out along quicker? cause any damage? they are only 15mm anyway so are they ok to use. anyone used pcd adapters before

    I ordered a set of 20/25mm FKs off Awesome nearly 3 weeks ago and they should be here any time now. I've not heard any reports of them wearing out bearings quick but that doesn't mean that they won't. Anyway I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Make sure you get the right width for the wheels so they clear the suspension strut and also don't come ou too far.

    Mine are ET45 and I've got 20/25mm adapters on order! This will make the ET 25/20mm and at the moment my S3 wheels have an offset of ET 22/17mm so should look mint.

    Haha yeah fair play. I'm still slightly worried about mine being out too wide. I might find out one day if Awesome actually send me the bloody things!
