5x120 to 5x100 adapters?

Hello all. I am looking at getting a 135i coupe sometime soon and I have some Axis Supermeshs from my old VW Jetta that I would love to put on the car. Only problem is they are 5x100. I really don't wanna let these rims go because I really love them and Axis discountinued them so its really hard to find them these days. Would it be good if got some adapters for it to fit on to the 135i. i have come across these adapters. http://www.adaptitusa.com/index.asp?...PROD&ProdID=78 I would just like to know if it is worth it. Thanks for in advanced.

Good luck. I doubt anything like that exists, and I would defintiely never do mthat to my car. It's not just the bolt pattern that you need to contend with, you'll be adding with, with that adapter (if it even exists), on an already high offset wheeled car. Also, the hubcentric extension will need to be taken into account, so you'd probably be looking at custom adapters, specifc to that situation/wheel.

Even so, you're adding quite a bit of width with the adapters, and unless your wheels have an offset of ET60, you're going to have tires sticking waaaaay out of your fenders.

No need to even go into the safety factor with all those other issues.

See what you can get for them, you might be able to re-use the tires on those wheels, and put the $$ from the sale of those existing wheels towards a new set that are made to fit your new car.

Just did a google search for the wheels you have.. They look nice, and understand why you'd want to keep them, but they are 35 offset. Add asome sort of adapter onto that, and you're down to a 15 offset. Those things are going to stick out over an inch beyond your fender, if you ever managed to get them to shoehorned on there.

Ok I'm really new to this and don't really understand the offset stuff. So you are saying that adding an adapter wouldnt work and it wouldnt be safe for they will stick out to far? Thanks again for the help

Exactly. Even if you were able to source those adapters (they would likely be custom machined pieces), your setup would make the tires stick out way too far beyond the fenders, making those wheels unusable, even thought they now did bolt on.
