Correct. The centre bore dia is larger on a MB, though. Since both cars run
hubcentric wheels, one would need a precisely machined adapter ring in order
to mount a MB wheel on an Audi. Only to discover that the offsets are way
different (RWD v. FWD/AWD).
The lug nuts are larger on the 5ktq apps as well.... One must drill the 11
bolt holes to 14mm The offsets vary, the 300MB sedans are the app.... Have
quite a few of them with the aluminum centering rings without problems....
They do tend to push wheels outbound most are 35-36mm offset, 45 being stock
for the 5ktq, tho 200tq with G60 conversions use 35...
