I have a set of 6x16 and 7x16 Fuchs I would like to install on a 84 Rabbit PU bolt pattern. It is a custom body and I will have the clearance.

Any suggestions or help or parts........

Redrilling the brake rotors would probably be the best option. I don't think you can drill 5 lug on a 4 lug rotor but if you got a set of 5 lug rotors off of a VR6 maybe and redrilled them for 5x130 it might work.

That's my friend Mike's car. I'll try to remember to ask him how he ran 5x130 on his car tonight.

It only took 5 minutes for my local Machine Shop to measure/quote me $120 for 4 4X112mm hubs redrilled for 4X130mm. I was completely satisfied with their work! They can weld up one 4 lug hole before redrilling for 5 lugs if necessary.

I talked to the owner of the above Mk 2 and he said he used 4x100 to 5x130 adapters.
