2008 Astra XR
Default Wheel adapters / spacers

So I have the chance to buy a set of wheels I have been eye balling for a while. But I know im gonna need some adapters/ spacers to make them fit. The wheels are

VW R32 Aristos
5x100
18"

Does anyone know if some spacers I could get to accommodate these? They are priced to sell for the wheels and tires. And are in decent condition where I'm basically stealing them.

...
'08 Saturn Astra
-Debadge
-Vauxhall Grille
-Thule Roof Rack (and wind fairing)
-1.25" Lowered
-Windows Tint all around
-JVC Head unit
-Dual 12" Subs

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you are able to get some custom spacers made up for it they would work wonderfully. Lucky for us you would just need to bolt the spacer onto the hub and have the spacer made with new lug bolts to the proper pcd.

Something like these but a proper name brand

Ya thats my worry, mainly finding spacer that will fit the weird center bore for the astra hub and that is it s stud instead of regular lug nuts.

If anything secure the adapter with the bolts would be more secure than using studs because you still have the same amount of threads going into the hub. Just need to make sure you have a bolt with a short head. The stock bolts may work for this application.
