    Selling a set of my old wheels on ebay and a guy has asked me if they will fit his 8L chassis. Anyone know the answer?

    Cheers

    In a word no... 8L is 5x110 and 8P is 5x112 stud pattern.

    You can modify the hubs or get wheels with both fittings though but not OEM wheels.

    Adapters is the only way since, like audicruiser said, the cars have different stud-patterns.

    With adapters they'd be fine. Tbh considering the OEM 8P wheel has an ET in the 50s, you'd need inch thick spacers anyway so the adapters would work fine for that purpose as well

    high offset + spacer = low offset

    So 8P onto 8L with an adaptor is probably fine in terms of offset.

    Lot of hassle unless you REALLY want that particular style of rim though
