Wheels.19

question [HELP]

Okay, I have info. Ken, the numbers you are describing are the bolt
pattern. The mounting holes are in the wrong place to match the
studs.

You can buy adapters but they're not really recommended for front-
wheel-drive cars, because of the strain. There are ways to jury-rig
the car so the wheels will go on, but none of them are recommended.
Safety should be more important than looks.

Are you that stuck on the wheels? Really, you should be looking for
wheels that fit your vehicle properly.

<<   I think that "offset" is how far the rim sits away from the
wheel
once mounted.>>

It is. The wrong offset can present a major problem on front-wheel-
drive cars, if you're trying to mount a wheel made for rear-wheel on
the front.

<<   There is already a topic for questions like this.>>

There is, but when someone just joined today and is unfamiliar with
the setup and has a question, I think we can cut some slack.
