Always liked the brock b1's, ever since I saw them about a year ago but
havent been able to work on the car. Its not far off I want to get some
new wheels and Im defo still liking these. Piccy below of what it would
looks like + the oettinger kit ...

Posted Image


Just wanted to ask some q's :-

1) Will these fit my bora without any modification to the car (im not
sure about ET etc so would need some more info on it to understand
whats happening)

2) That tyre looks spot on , anyone know what those kinds are called ? They are like a pit more puffy on the sides.

3) Where would the best place to source some brock b1's be ? I know
theyre quite common so maybe I could pick them up at a reasonable price
@ good condition second hand ?

4) does anyone know if Ill have any rubbing problems ? As far as I know, the maximum size they make them in is 17"

Thanks guys {:D]

Ive seen some nice brocks for sale but they are ET20. If i am not
wrong, al wheels on boras should be ET30-ET45 ? What problems would I
get when trying to fit a wheel which is ET20 ?

Need to know this kind of urgently before they sell !

Thanks

Ok Ive just seen that the brocks are 4x100 and I would need 5x100 because of the dub. Are there convertors available for this ?

The offset alone isn't enough to know, you have to find out how wide the rim is, too. Relatively speaking, for a given width, the smaller the offset the further out it will sit. What I do know is that a 7.5" section rim with ET35 doesn't give problems. So you could draw a diagram to represent that, then take the width and ET of your desired rim and see if it falls within the boundaries of 7.5"/ET35, if it does, no worry, if it doesn't, then you're on your own...

Now, I only gave 7.5"/ET35 because that's what I run, and I chose my wheel from the application s elector on the wheel manufacturer's web site. What you could do is the same, but see what is the absolute widest rim offered (they will have done their homework here) and use that width and ET as your baseline reference to see if your new wheel would fit, or be out of that spec. Then, you're on your own...

Yes you can get PCD adapters, if you must do this, buy the absolute best quality you can afford - and don't forget to factor in the adapter spacing into your offset calculations! Tricky business.

Thanks mate, what site is it that I can go to to see what the widest rim possible on the dub is ?

Try www.bbs.com - go to "For automotive" on the left navigation menu then choose your car (Golf/Bora) and the biggest, baddest rim you can find [:D]

Saying that, does Brock have a web site with application s elector? Another good reference, with 1,000x1,000 high resolution photos of each rim is www.tirerack.com

I am going to say that I am not a fan of these wheels but then you certainly don't see many of them around on the road.

I love the size and the stance but I am not a massive fan of deep dish?

I am sure that they would look great with all you kit on now though!!

I am sure you know this, but the setup in the pictures would not be road legal here, as they protrode from the wheel arches.

Im a huge fan of deep dishes, I dont know why just like their look
better. I understand if they stick out further than the arch then they
are illegal however, I am not sure how they will look in level with the
arch but if they need to go over then Ill just risk it for however long
I can lol

Kerschers are nice too ... and rials .... theres a lot of choice and Im [email protected] at making choices lol
