      Looking for some rare vintage wheels? We just ran a post about these on our blog. From a rarity perspective, we think these might have just about anything one-upped.

      I wonder if anyone has done a single-lug conversion somehow?

      It's worth going to the Ebay listing to see all the pics. Shots like this one show that they're actually cast with a bolt pattern in the rear albeit not an Audi bolt pattern. That red Worthersee B5 appears to have had his drilled.

      Actually the seller of the wheel is giving some very bad advice....

      The wheels he is selling are the centerlock version and the holes are for the pins in that set up. The audi pictured has the multi lug centers like a normal wheel. BBS made two different centers, and under no circumstances should the centerlock version be drilled for multi lug use

      Why is that? Does it interfere with the integrity of the wheel?

      Yes, the castings are very different for the two versions. This info came straight from BBS by the way.

      Well time for one of us to get some centerlock adapters, if they can do that. Or get new hubs!

      Thanks for the clarification. I wonder why the castings with the bolt pattern. I don't recall the EB110 ever using anything but center lock.

      The ET38 centrelock BBS’ were always going to need some fettling to get on the B5, centrelock adapters would have given too much poke so the decision was made to drill these to the Audi’s PCD. The work on these is faultless; it’s hard to tell that these didn’t originally come in 5 stud fitment. Needless to say that with some spacing of the rears this thing sits perfect in a way we haven’t seen since the touring car days.
