    Hi I have some 19" Oettinger alloys which are ET35 and obviously 112 PCD. I tried fittign them to my car yesterday but They weren't sitting flush on the car so I am assuming I need some Spigot Rings. Has anyone had any experience of this and do I need a Spigot Ring and if so what size?

    Thanks

    Spigot rings work fine, you will neeed to reduce the CB on your new wheels using a spigot ring eg 73.1-57.1(vag standard)..If you don't use spigot ring's you will have wheel wobble due to the wheels not being centered/sitting on the hub's.

    yeah literally to ensure the wheel goes on centralized. Actually, what do you mean they are not flush??

    do you mean they wobble, and fall off if there are no bolts in, the spigot rings hold the wheel on the hub perfectly central so that when you put the bolts in they stay central and dont wobble which is 57.1
    I understood flush to mean you wheels are sitting inside or outside the arches, then it would be spacers
