The top wheel listed is shown as 4x4.25" (108mm), so yeah...one in the same it would seem. I only showed that wheel because it was one of the first hits

if they are, I can get 17x9/10 staggered china mustang reps for an audi 90

Multiply 4.25 inches by 25.4 mm/inch. That will give you bolt circle in millimeters, dumbass.

(4.25 in * 25.4 mm/in = 107.95mm)

Honestly, how did you pass 6th grade science? I think the only thing they taught was unit conversions...

Yeah, but I guess I failed 7th grade mechanical engineering, because I couldn't pull for the question of "is it close _enough_" out of my ass, especially for shit that keeps my wheels from falling off. It's close, but how close is it really? If you bought new wheels, and they told you, "yeah, there's a couple thou of runout in the bolt pattern, but it should be close enough", how would you feel?

Also, look at 5x120 and 5x4.75": they're close, but not interchangeable.

I was going to say something similar, but with a little more finesse

There's a "couple thou" of difference between 4.25" and 108mm (~.002", or 0,05mm). There's a "couple hun" difference between 4.75" and 120mm (0.03" or 0.65 mm). That's an order of magnitude difference, there - the first set is 13 times closer than the second.

I'd take any wheel that has the right offset and doesn't strip the studs going on - a 5/120mm wheel is likely to do that on a 5/4.75" hub. The slop in mounting something that's probably slightly deformed by road damage is why we have acorn nuts to mount wheels.

Changed seats out today.
These are 95 Base model cloth seats.





Old seats + car. Really need to fix that relay for my headlights...


Keep the base or the factory R1 velvet seats?

Oh and I HATE CATS.
