don't use adapters. all of them are crap and you risk having one of your wheels pass you on the interstate. the only safe way to adapt those wheels is to have your drums and rotors drilled at a machine shop and studs pressed in. but the offset on those wheels is'nt good for you either. just give up the VW wheels and go get some new ones. i have an extra set, might be interested in a trade. mail me a pic.

I'm getting tired of typing this...

My friend wrecked his 280Z with 1 1/4" spacers with studs in them (bolt the spacer to the car, and then bolt the rim to the spacer). Totally demolished the front end of the car, including shattering the brake rotor and rim, but guess what, the spacer was fine and he now has them on another car!

He also happens to be the guy making them, so how that for a sales pitch?

Do what you want. Cool rims in 17" for an early Z will cost $2000-3000 (that's dollars). Front wheel drive offset rims are a dime a dozen and there are some cool looking onesout there.

Just my two cents.
