Longer rear studs and front bolts required and maybe spacers depending on the offset(ET)?
Also the centre bore will need enlarging to go over the front grease caps.
If they're replicas they'll not be weight rated for a T25.
If they've got car tyres fitted they'll not be weight rated either and possibly the wrong size for a T25.

Best to do the research before buying aftermarket alloys.
There's looooaaads of info on here and the Brick-Yard.

From a quick Google around, I think that 8eo 601 025j are genuine VAG wheels. The offset of 45 is too high. According to the Wiki page for that width of wheel you want ET28-ET30, so you'll need suitable spacers.

As mentioned, centre bores will need to be increased at the front.
