    What size bolts are in my wheels right now?

    ...replica RS6s if that makes any difference.

    Need some longer ones, going to ask Rochford 1st should they ever answer their bloody phone!

    Cheers,
    Adam

    Cheers Dunk ... just ordered a set of 16 50mm bolts and a set of matching lockers from Rochford. Trimming may be required though.

    Cheers!

    50mm might catch on the suspension behind the hub - you probably will have to trim them

    Just bought some new RS4 reps and was wondering if the Audi locking nuts R Ok or would any of you recommend using different ones /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Taffy, there isn't many key combinations on the Audi locking nuts (7 i think?) so you should get yourself over to halfords and get a set of McGuards. They are about £30 and are supposed to be one of the best!

    I have them on mine and I know a lot of people on here have them.

    Go get them before some scroat robs your alloys!

    mcguard do one that is 44mm long with the audi type of head - these fit perfectly with either spacers or a wider offset wheel

    Adam,

    I have 15mm rear spacers on my Golf Anni.

    I'm using McGard 28017 on the rear (45.0mm) and McGard 28018 on the front (26.7mm).

    There is a groupbuy on at uk-mkivs.net for them /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Cheers!

    Are original wheel studs ok to use with RS4 reps (From Rochfords). Cause Ive just checked and only about 10mm of the thread goes into the wheel hub.


    I the checked the old Avus wheels and the stud sticks out on the hub side much more.

    Will this be ok or should I get longer ones?

    Dont fancy a wheel coming off /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked2.gif
