    Seeing as they are aftermarket rims then no doubt they'll come with a CB of about 70-80mm or something and if bought for VAG cars would just come with appropriate spigots so just a case of getting the correct spigots with O/D of these wheels and the I/D 65.1mm of your hubs.

    Yes, all you'll need is spigots & wobbly bolts.

    Do u know the width of the rims as this will affect the offset.

    Judging by the 225 tyres in the package I would presume they're gonna be 8" wide. 7.5" would be better as the offsets are a little more forgiving (38-49mm) 40mm is ideal IMO as it sits nicely in the arch and allows it to be dropped upto 70mm with no rubbing.....8" wide and the ET needs to be a bit more precise 42-49mm is acceptable here - some have fitted as low as 35 but Id be looking at some arch rolling if this was the case - especially if ur car is lowered.

    The tyre choice too really aint the best for the mk4 - expect quite a bit of rubbing with those.... 215/35/18 is what u really need - so it maybe worth contacting the seller to see if they can accomodate these requests if u really have ur head set on them
