    wheel fitment....

    Seen some alloys i quite fancy for sale...the fitment details are as follows:

    19" 5x112
    2 wheels ET46
    Other 2 ET41 9J

    Will these fit a MK5?

    Are they merc or VAG wheels?

    If they are merc they will fit with a bit of work. The 9J may be the worry, as it could foul on the inner arches.

    Either way stretched tyres is the only way to go, you will need to get a spigot made up, and run wobbly bolts

    If its a VAG fit then no the centrebore is smaller than the vaux one.

    Would depend on the centre bore. For example if merc centre bore you will need to run spigot rings, if VW bore then it will too small and not sure you could get them bored out to larger size or not.

    Would need to run wobbly bolts to take the 5x112 to 5x110.

    They sound like Bentley wheels though with those ET's

    9J isnt that much of an issue Mat, my rears are 9's and dont rub at all.

    Front would be tighter but can imagine them to be too bad as my fronts are 8.5j

    They might be bentley wheels...I know reboring is an issue but i was more concerned on the general fitment and how it could go...
