Just wondering, Where did you get the adaptors made? I'm after some to fit 5x112 mercs. Hard to find and stupidly priced are my outcomes so far

To be fair, I thought you were making a big mistake going for these, but they are pretty damn nice. Can't wait to see them on the car!

On a side note, that is a crazy price for a wheel refurb. I'm surprised people pay it!

The adaptors are from fk, they cost me 170 and I'm pretty sure they make them for every setup.give them a phone

Graham glad you have came round bud and I know I think that's bloody crazy, I think it's where they mainly do Ferrari, Porsche, lambo and all that jazz.

Tom you know I love you

Ive looked into this myself when i had a Polo, Going from 4x100 to 5x112 isent actually doable on a 1 piece adapter using std sized wheel bolts as the holes intercross.
You either use a 2 peice adapter (4x100 in 1 piece and 5x112 in the other then bolt them together) But i didnt trust this but you can also buy a 1 piece adapter now that uses 1 very long bolt in 1 hole.

Neither seemed a great idea to me and even then they were a bloody dear adapter so i never bothered, best thing would be a 5 stud conversion and then a 1 piece adapter from there

Love these wheels, i wouldnt mind a set of Porsche 928's on the corsa, need moneyz! lol good luck with them

Cheers guys

Well BIG update:

There on I had to refurb all the inner arches and brakes just to make it look fresh for the new tread.
So all the arch linings went anthisite (or how ever it's spelt) and rear beam also, hubs and carriers went black again.







And yes I know I didn't do suspention I'm getting new setup

And now for the wheels, for now only pictures on the drive because I'm doing the heater matrix at the moment so couldn't go any where. Pics do no justice...



















I will get better pics when I have done the matrix so hopefully tommoorw.
