I know the bolt pattern is 5x100, and I currently have wheels with 5x103. so the variance of not having to be "EXACTLY" 100, what I am lookng to find out is will 5x112 work. I am looking for a knowledgeable and technical answer, since this is a a vital componenant. So please answer if you have the background, knowledge to, no guessing or maybes,

Thanks Again for your help

Who makes 5x103? I've never heard of it.

5x112 won't bolt up correctly, if at all. Even with 5x103, you're putting huge side loads on the lug studs. Very dangerous to drive that way.

The only way to use 5x112 is to redrill your hubs and rotors, assuming there is enough material there.

I cant find a 5x103 bolt pattern either....Sooo

I'm guessing maybe, your measurements are wrong? Peep this link for bolt pattern cross references. Note there are no values of 103mm...

http://www.roadkillcustoms....ference-Database.asp

Also I'm GUESSING that MAYBE your approach to seeking help here is all wrong. Personally when I ask for advice here, the guesses and maybes are welcome. I understand its a personal safety concern. However I further understand that I wont always do what others tell me too!

Good luck wth your quest for knowledge!

In the intrest of clarity and understanding, perhaps you could remeasure the wheels dimensions and also explain how you made these measurements. Pictures would also help.
I personally have never heard of a 5x103 bolt pattern.

It won't work due to the greater degree of variances between the two bolt sizes (if you had 5x112 and wanted to use 5x114.3-you could). A company here in CA makes wobbles lug bolts. The wobble lug nuts is a two piece lug nut that has a seat which wobbles while the lug nut is tightened. The # is 1 (818) 998-6005, but in your case it won't work.

FWIW - some volvo's have used a bolt pattern very close to 103mm: 102.95mm x 5 on the 960 and 103.58mm x 5 on the XC70...

Well, don't be shy. Let's see the wheels. There was a set of HRE in that bolt pattern a month ago. Hmm. I'm wondering was it you who snatch them up?
