I am looking to purchase these Mercedes rims from E-bay, and the bolt pattern is 5x112, so they are a direct bolt on for VR6's, right?? If so then I am going to save up for VR suspension, and throw these wheels on...Does anybody have Mercedes wheels on their MK3, I think I've seen a couple on here...Thanks in advance... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Wont bolt right on, vr6 bolt patterns are 5x100. In order to bolt them right on you would need some adapters, to convert your 5x100 to 5x112

if I'm not mistaken 5x112 is the Audi/Passat bolt pattern as well. You can get the H&R adaptors from Potterman's to convert from 5x100-5x112

ohhh btw be very careful about offset. the adaptors are going to be at least 15mm thick, so you need an offset with 15mm higher # than you want to have in the end
ET45 and more is the way to go if you're on stock fenders
