    just a set of wobbly bolts is all you should need seeing as they should be 5x112 PCD

    20s shouldnt be too much of an issue under the Mk5 arches but tyre choice and offset really should be your next big concern

    Thanks GB

    Tyres were going to be 215/30/20 or 205/30/20 if they're available (and not silly money!)

    newer VW and almost all Audi are 5 x 112. You may need some custom spiggot rings making too as they are not available off the shelf.

    Wobbly bolts are a must, the spiggot rings (if the bore is the same as Merc which I think it is) are optional as they are just to hold the wheel central without bolts.

    Centre bore is smaller so you will have to bore them out - if the wheel has the material to be bored out without losing strength.

    VAG wheels are old 5 x 100
    or new 5 x 112

    So depends on the wheel you want to fit.

    VAG centre bore 57.1
    Vauxhall centre bore 65.1
