still learning lots about VW , but some of my basic questions would be :

1) who made these adaptors ?
2) what pcd is wrong ? they wont fit your t25 pcd ? or wont fit the porche wheel pcd ?

fits the van ok, but when bolting the wheels to them i run into difficulty. the pcd is a fraction out it seems as the bolt heads look to be further out towards the outer part of the hole. if a great deal of care is used i can just about get the wheels centred but to me it don,t seem right. no idea what make they are, they are steel without the studs so i am reckoning fairly low rent ones.

presuming you have the correct bolts then they should fit with no problems. mine are fine.
it`s a big round cage and there`s too many animals in it for my liking. To help address this ring lee on 07977 765818.

doesnt sound good and I wouldnt want to be running them like that.. lots of strain on the bolts and alloys.. get local eng firm to have a measure up, but you should be able to do that in any case.. distance between centres of 2 adjacent holes.. multiply by 1.702 (IIRC this should give you the actual PCD, so need to try and measure the centres as good as poss)

mystery solved
put one of the new adaptors on today and was a bit flumoxed as when i put the new and old together ther appeared to be no differece. i took them indoors and tried to bolt them together with all 5 bolts. a fail they would not bolt up, also putting the new bolts in they felt right when i tightened them.
thanks for your input guys

Rather than start a new thread I thought I could piggy back this one!

We've got a set of teledials but now need the adapters.
I seem to have a choice of brickwerks hubcentric or eBay non hubcentric.
I obviously want the hubcentric but are there any other recommendations?

Nothing against BW, just want to look at all options before I buy.
What is everyone using with Porsche rims?

Thanks in advance

i went for the BW ones , nad yes they are expensive ! but hand on heart i think i would buy them again if i had a choice.

well made , take into account the rear drum holding nuts ( as they are not flush with the drum face )

fitted in minutes , not a problem . no wheel wobble , nothing !
