RE: 5k turbo rims wanted

A rather interesting rim fit was a set of Ford Capri (Euro - 1976 - Black
Cat Special) wheels. They were aftermarket ATS 13" x 8" three spoke with 215
60 Dunlops.  These fit perfectly on my 1983 Audi 5000.  I'm sure the offset
wasn't great for the wheel bearings but the engine died before the wheels
did.  I wonder how many other manufacturers wheels would fit.  Remember the
Ford was rear wheel drive and the 5000 front yet it drove remarkably well.

Just a bit of ancient history

How is that possible?  VW GTI (4-cylinder) has 4x100 hubs...
VR6 models have 5x100.  The non-turbo 5K is 4x108.

96 A4 2.8 quattro
84 5000S 2.1 turbo
80 4000 2.0
