Who here is running 5x112 wheels?

As we know the selection of 5x110 is slightly limited to say the least...I've seen some comments in regards to people running 5x112 wheels, are those of you who are using the Precision Fit System from BBS if so where'd you get it? Secondly I know that Black Forest Industries a VW/Audi tuner sells special bolts that give you 2mm of play so you can run 5x114.3 on 5x112, any experience?

Thanks

Mark/69MGB was running 18" BBS RX's with the 5x112 and 32mm offset. He was using BBS shuffle bolts. He no longer has a Saab but you can try Pm'ing him. If he doesn't reply I'll reach him for you.

I know Nick at Genuine Saab is running the BBS lugs I believe he bought them direct; his BBS wheels are 5x112 if I am not mistaken. Thanks for that other company though I have been looking as were to get these from a shop within the US.

Yea I'm curious as to the price from BBS, on BFI's website they are 5 bucks a bolt, so $100 plus shipping...not terrible if you think about the variety of wheels you can run...

I think PAviggen is using that pattern on his Volvo R replicas.

Moski is running the same wheels as 69mgb.

TireRack does not carry them, gotta buy direct.

Just make sure the center-bore fits too.

Here's a link

TireRack does carry the shuffle bolts....it just takes a while to get a hold of someone to talk to that knows what you are talking about. Buying them direct from BBS is less expensive. When I got them this summer I listed the part number, as well as a picture in the forum.

I ran 5x112 17" ASA AR1's on my 9-3 this past summer. No need for special bolts or staggered lugs, whatever you wanna call em. Great feel and handling when paired with Kumho SPTs.

I called BBS directly, spoke to someone within 5 minutes...Was really hassle free. They were 5$ a bolt, and took em like a week to have them shipped to my door. No problems so far!

Awesome information in that link we should have that over here as well as a sticky. I'm going to get in contact with them and see if it would be alright to being that over here.
