    Angry PCD adapters!

    Hi, recently came into possession of 17'' OZ Racing Superturismos and FOOLISHLY thought it would be easy to acquire some PCD adapters for them. Turns out I can't find any that fit the 4 Stud and go to Peugeot PCD and bore.

    There are some 4/100 for VWs that go to Peugeot but have different bore, so Im believing I would need a spigot to fit these. Correct me if Im wrong but using spigots with pcd adapters sounds really fudged and also slightly dangerous??

    I believe alloy wheel spec is 4/108 w/ bore 57.x but I need to measure these, just know that the bore was just too large and the holes just barely didnt align. The wheels are also ET25 which I thought was a bit too small BUT I figure with a PCD adapter it would increase the gap?

    All thoughts appreciated, thanks

    as the diameter is only 2mm out, you can use wobbly bolts. i used these style bolts (as do many others) to fit mercedes 5x112 wheels to our 5x110 vauxhalls.

    then all you will need is a spigot ring for the wheels

    Sorry I think you misread but my car is 4/100 and I believe my tyres to be 4/108 possibly too wobbly for wobbly bolts

    Will doublecheck the PCD but am fairly sure this is the case

    Was hoping you hadnt misread, would have saved me so much effort.
    Went to three garages today to look at PCD adapters, none of which had any idea what I was on about. Gonna have to call at dreaded halfords to see if they do any!

    If anyone has any other ideas please share, other than selling the alloys (which is sounding more appealing now)

    Is to get 4x108 Peugeot Alloys on a 4x100 Astra

    Even if you manage to overcome the PCD problem, if they are peugeot fit wheels then the offset (ET) will be miles out, and short of machining the wheels down they will not fit anyway. From memory (it's been a few years) Pug offset is 15mm, Vaux is 49mm. Please someone correct me if I've got that wrong.

    Tehnicaly it would be possible to make them fit with enough time, money and effort, but if the wheels are what they sound to be then you're better off pulling the plug and finding some different rims.

    Yeah I was thinking that the spacers would compensate for the ET, but this is looking really naff now. ET on these is 25 and I think the range for Astra Gs is 35-45

    Well, if anyone is interested in buying some OZ Racing Alloys for Peugeot... :P

    Cheers all!

    spacers would make the ET worse!

    if the wheels are ET25 and u fit spacers that are 20mm wide for instance.... the wheels will in effect then be ET5 and stick out even further

    good if ur going for the euro look but i imagine your just tryin to go for the cheapest route possible

    ditch the idea, stick em on ebay and get some correct 4x100 rims - ten a penny on ebay seeing as its a popular size used by GM, Honda and loads of others

    And if you buy wheels that are a different fitment but still 4x100 make sure you get spigot rings also.

    Good job then, I thought they were set too far in so that the spacers would push them out to make them in normal range.

    I was a bit hasty to buy them as they were quite cheap (127 with only a couple scuffs) so I should make my cash back
