Wheels Query - 4x98

Post by Fresco3000 » Thu Jun 24, 2021 12:27 pm

Guys,

Looking at a few sets of vintage wheels for my MK2, I've seen a set of old Alpha's from an Alfasud. They are 4x98.

I've read that wobble bolts allow you to put 100's on a 98, but does that work both ways, allowing you to put 98's on a 100?

I don't mind a bit of work if there's a method.

The Bore on the VW is 57, the bore for the Alphas 58. So if possible with wobble bolts I'd also need spigot rings?

Think this can work with a set of 58.6mm - 57.1mm spigot rings.

Like these:https://ej-parts.co.uk/spigot-rings-hub ... mm-57.1mm/

And a good set of wobble bolts. Obv there's some care to be taken on fitting.
