OK so i bought a set of 18" scircco Interlagos Alloy's for my mk4 golf. I have also bought a set of FK 15mm adapters 5x100-5x112 for them to fit.

My question is when i have bolted the adaptors to the hub & then fit the alloy with my wheel bolts they seem to be to long & dont tighten up the alloy properly [facepalm]

Do you have to get shorter bolts for them to fit tightly to the hub??

Cheers

Ive used 15mm adapters before and the bolts were fine mate, were did you get the adapters from?

I'm surprised as I would expect the bolts to go through the wheel and in to the adapters, have you tried putting the bolts in to the adapter without the wheels? Check to see how much gap there is etc then you can ascertain if you need shorter/other bolts.

Get a machine shop to cut them down. Should only want a tenna or something.
