[200q20v] 5x112(?) Ronal R8's

Hey all,

Saw a t44 the other day with R8's on it.  Struck me as funny since I never 
thought that car came with those wheels, and the only car I associated those 
wheels with where 4k's, albeit in a 14"-which I know to have a 4-bolt 
pattern.  And no, the t44 was not retrograded to a 4-bolt hub.

Well, I figured out the deep dish R8's on the Quattro Coupes (and I suspect 
all 4k based Quattro Coupes) did have a 5 bolt pattern, which I'm guessing 
is 5x112 (is that the size/pattern on our cars?)    Where all of the 80's 
vintage coupes setup with a 5-bolt hub, including the ones with the flat 
fenders?  If not, anybody have any ideas where those wheels I saw on the t44 
came from (15" R8, non-deep dish)?

That's my guess on wheel source on the t44 in question; either a non '85(?) 
Quattro Coupe, or one of the flat fendered, front drivers.  Any input and/or 
corrections on my knowledge here?  More of a curiosity than anything.
