    Hello!

    Im sure most of you know of the problems im having with my S3/Insurance company!!

    Anyway, im getting the car back to stip it for parts before it gets crushed and i'll be taking off my RSTTs but i dont have the original alloys to put back on the car.

    I need a VERY cheap set of four steel wheels just so the car can be left on the wheels and put back on the car transporter when it gets collected.

    What wheels will fit (i.e from what cars)
    Can i use Volvo, saab, vauxhall etc.. wheels or is it just VAG cars??

    Gonna have to take a trip to the scrap yard and would like to come back with a set of wheels that fit!!

    Dont suppose anyones got a set kicking around??

    Cheers

    Ash

    I'd get some 15" ones off a Golf as long as its 5x100 or you might be able to buy some cheap alloys off ebay with illegal tyres. Have you tried UKMKIVS.NET?

    15"?
    I don't think they'll fit over the front brakes, will they?
    I doubt it.

    I think 16" min...VW New Beetle or Bora 16" steels will do, or any basic 16" alloy from the VAG 5 x 100 range.

    I think Toyota Celicas (Mid to late 90's shape) have the same size wheels.

    Yeah, 16 inch minimum to fit over standard front brakes.

    Yes, why wouldn't they? if the whole disk, carriers and calipers are not there, then the bit of width the brake disks would offer wouldn't matter, so long as the bore of the hub goes through the bore of the wheel.
