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 ****** 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

Thought as much ... only did 40mm or 50mm lengths though /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

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

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
