    Hi,

    I have seen a set of wheels on eBay that I really want but the problem is, There 8.5" wide and 5X100

    What I'm thinking though is buying them and running 20mm adapters (5X100 -5X112) My question is, Will they stick out too much or will they be ok..?

    They end in 20 hours so I need quick answers guys, Please help....

    Thanks
    Craig

    Having fought a wheel wobble for 2 years the other day I nicked my mates wheels off his a3

    They are genuine 18" Audi rotors. They have mis matched tyres and one of the tyres has a nail and a slow puncture

    The wobble has gone away

    Take from that what you will

    all depends on the et off the wheels to begin with . higher et E.G 54 then more chance spacers will be ok probably have to stretch tyres though on rear

    You have no chance with them I am afraid , adaptors are 13mm minimum , so et22 in reality , which will poke right out .. Et 15 with your 20mm ones ...
