View Full Version : Stock lugs long enough for aftermarket wheels?

10-15-2004, 01:08 PM
I ran into this problem on my last car with the stock lugs not being long enough when I upgraded the wheels. I have a 98 A4 and am putting on 18 x 8.5 w/ 40 mm offset wheels. Do I need longer lugs?

It depends on the wheels. Each aftermarket wheel manufacturer makes their wheels to use different lugs. Check with the wheel manufacturer directly, or one of their dealers to find out exactly which lugs you should use.

The wheel size and offset don't have anything to do with the lugs it uses.

My CHs came w/ their own set of lug bolts.
