Hey guys

A mate of mine has just bought a set of 22" alloys for his 2009 7 series bmw, he's asked me to try and sell his original wheels either on here or ebay. so before i advertise them will they fit or can they be made to fit a mk4 golf?

the sizes are....

front, 245/45 zr 19" 9" wide

rears, 275/40 z 19" 10" wide

thanks in advance andy

is that meant to be 245/45 for the fronts?

essentially, yes they can be made to fit, the buyer will need a set of 5 x 120 to 5 x 100 adapters if it is a MK4 golf. will also need to change the tyre sizes. this is also dependant on the ET f the wheels(should be printed on the inside of them and will likeley be different of front and rear) also it would be good to look for the width of the wheels, which you can normally also find inside the wheel(a number followed by j, so 8j on the front 10j on the rears for example.

yeah..lol now changed to 45

Would the tyres need to be changed to a lower profle to enable them to fit?

Are they 22" or 19"? Your title says 22", however, the wheel size you give later down is 245/45/zr19, which is a 19" rim. Confusing! [*-)]

With rims, bigger = better. The idea is to lower the car down nicely onto the wheels so it looks good, not right down onto the road so it gets broken by every last ripple in the road and looks silly.

He's just replaced his 19" with 22"

So the question was will the 19" fit a mk4 golf ? even as wide as the rears are?
