When walking through one of the car parks at work last week, I spotted a 156 with what looked like Audi A4 Sport 5-spoke alloys. Would such a wheel fit - like is the PCD and offset correct? If no one is sure I will leave a note on the car to ask the owner him/herself. I'm not saying the wheels looked great but it is an option, as my 156 desperately needs bigger wheels than the standard 15" multi-holes, but £700+ for a set of OZs and tyres is quite a lot of cash !
Audi wheels would fit ,Audi are 5x100 and alfas 5x98 not sure of offset, You would need to use 'wobbly bolts' and a spacer plate
bolts are approx £2 each and plates about £10 , but this would give much larger selection of alloys to choose from, speak to an accessory shop that specialises in wheels and they will be able to give you specs and prices
new aftermarket alloys usually come with centre bore adaptors to suit different cars and the wobbly bolts come in different sizes to suit different wheels on different cars , the accessory shop should be able to get the best ones for the job , info from tyre fitter in DRIVERS in glasgow but all good stockists should tell you the same
Yes but "ka156" was talking about an Audi OEM alloy wheel not an aftermarket one.
The cheaper aftermarket wheels have centre bore adapters, the better aftermarket wheels are built to suit a specific fitment.
Thanks for all the replies, and the GTV option wheel looks very much like the one I have seen. 2mm PCD difference is pretty close and the offsets match at one one end of the range. What though are "wobbly bolts" - I could imagine a stud with an offset centre-line, but not a bolt.
I'll try to find out more from the 156 owner. By the way, I don't really care much for the style of the 5-spokes but a set of the RS4 wheels (as often sold in the Auto Trader) would look really tasty !
