Hmmm Wheels

My wife's 156 Sportwagon needs some new wheels. I like the look of OZ Super Turismo but apparently the fitment is not correct, however it's possible to get some special bolts that self adjust ? Can anyone enlighten me what these are and are they safe ?

Cheers

Hmm so don't trust them then ?

I'm actually having to change the current 17s because thanks to Ken Livingstone's 'don't bother repairing the road' policy two of them are buckled beyond repair.

Has anyone had a similar experience ....any suggestions re replacements ?

Plus there's the added attraction of having your picture taken for free at numerous points along the way....how could I resist.
