Philplop ran spacers and adapters with his Porsche rims.

We done some epic road trips when he was running them and as far as I am aware he never had any issues.


...but yes, larger adaptors would be preferable.

Lovely looking lupo there. However have you thought about spacing out the rear wheels slightly?

IMG_2837_zpse9f70c76.jpg

dosnt look too bad for now

IMG_2839_zpsca0d08b4.jpg

also got some stretch for the rear now running 165/45/16 on 7j wheels, but currently looking for the 8j rears but no one seems to be selling them separate

IMG_2800_zps8a5afc05.jpg

that was all ready for players classic just a shame the car didn't get in the show and shine area and was stuck out at the show paddock area someone got a good picture of the gti tho

IMG_2861_zps4fcf9901.jpg

players classic was pretty good first time I went there managed to catch the rs4 as it was on its side, but was too busy focusing on midnight garages golf mk5:

Nice.

It appears you're looking after the car aesthetically and I like that.

I'm not a fan of the wheels though, they date it imo.
