    Question Convertible Wheels

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know what offset the wheels are on the convertible? I am thinking of getting Audi S line wheels and they are ET43 and 18's, are the likely to fit?


    Cheers

    From when i was looking at Audi wheels for my coupe your main problem may be the centre bore as Audi wheels have a smaller bore iirc.

    Oh right, that's a shame guess they'll never fit. Has anyone seen what the wheels below look like on a coupe/Cab?? They look very similar to snowflakes.

    Its not a case of them never fitting, just a little more work to get it right. You can just get the centre bore machined out depending on the amount of metal there to work with. I had a quote of around £15 a wheel to get them machined out the few mm required.

    Thanks for the info, ill have to look into it as i wanted a cheap option of getting rid of the 18's on my car at the moment as i don't like them. Might try getting a pic and seeing if anyone wants to swap them etc.

    I'd say these would bolt straight up as there being advertised for the astra.

    The original ones that were on sale were only for audi/vw so the centre bore would have been too small.
