    wheels. fitting different pcd...?

    just a quick question guys, hope you dont mind me askign here, but i know theres alot of us that have/had fitted different pcd wheels.

    i know we can fit merc fitment 5x112 to vaux 5x110 using wobbly bolts.

    what id like to know is...

    can you fit 5x112 wheels to a 5x114.3 car?

    car in question uses stud/nuts. can you get wobbly nuts? lol

    you all know what i mean.

    share the knowledge

    cheers guys

    You can get corrective nuts. Allow a 2mm difference same as the bolts. No idea if they would allow a 2.3mm difference and be safe though. It seems such a tiny amount.

    They are listed as being the right size for a Mazda, assuming thats what you want them for

    think wobbly bolts or corrective bolts allow up to a 2.6mm difference, so a 112 to 114.3 should be ok.

    Obviously you will need to check centre bore and offset etc
