Wobblybolts will allow a 5x100mm PCD rim to fit a GTV (which has a 5x98mm PCD).
But the centre-bore must also be correct.

Hi,

I have ordered some wheels with PCD 5 x 100. I have also bought some wobbly bolts which I have been told will do the job.

Cheers

As others have said, yes you can, but please don't buy wheels like those. :)

Be carefull with those wobbly bolts mate.I bought some of those from a massive Alloy wheel centre near me,and the qaulity didnt turn out to be great.After a few thousand miles,all 4 stud holes had cracked on the front 2 wheels on my fiat.Hit a pot hole,and they really went!Was in a total garage when i hit the hole,and they accepted liability.They bought me a whole new set of wheels and tyres from Halfords and they came with halfords wobbly bolts which were of superb quality,no problems at all.Just my 2 pennys :thumbs:

I have been using wobbly bolts now for around 4 years and never had an issue at all. One really needs to make sure the fitment is hub-centric though as using the bolts to centralise the wheel doesnt seem the best option. I have also had a good experience with the extended wobbly bolts available on ebay which I used with 15mm Delta Mics spacers from LK Performance... Fills out the rear arches nicely ;-)

Those wheels will not fit !!


The centre bore is too small, 57.1 rather than 58.1. You'd need to get them drilled wider, ask the seller they may be able to do this.

+ they have Audi/VW centre bore so I imagine they also use Audi/VW bolts which are a radius seating. As far as I'm aware you can't get radius seat wobbly bolts, so they would be a no go in my opinion..
