Audi Rims on a Focus - Will it work?

Postby Stonez » Fri Feb 05, 2016 2:48 pm

Attention Wheel Gurus!

Ok so I have been on the lookout for Audi Speedlines
From what I have found the specs are as follows.

18x7.5
5x112
ET: 54
CB: 57.1

And the Focus wheels are as follows

18x8
5x108
ET : 55
CB : 63.3


So now my question is -
If I add 20mm adapters - then offset will become 34? Is that correct?

And with the CB - Would I have to modify the rims themselves, or would adapters take care of that too?

What other options are there? Redrilling the wheels themselves to match ford specs?

Haven't bought anything yet, just an idea I have.

Thanks.

You will need to change your Hubs in order for this to work, im busy in the process of researching to change hubs to BMW.

Cause BMW have some pretty awesome OEM rims

Hi Gerrie,

That might be right, I think where I got the wheel specs for the ST might have been a bit off.

Still searching for a nice set of 5x112 mags that i like. I was told that 9j in front will catch inside the arch if I turn. And it was a 42 off set.
