You have to use adapters, there's no way around that. You may get away with a 5x112 spacer and an adapter on top since 5x205 bus wheels have a deeper backspace. Sounds scary, but it is what it is.

Interesting. I wonder where this was taken. That's a Russian Pobeda in the intersection and white Wartburg heading opposite way. I see an Opel and couple Fords as well.
