Re: 84 Audi/VW wheels on an 86 4kq

the VW bolt pattern is 100mm and your 4kq is 108mm. I cannot think of a safe
way to make your VW  wheels fit your car except replacing the hubs with a FWD
4000's hubs. This however id considerable work & expense and you could probably
buy a 4kq wheel much cheaper & easier.
