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

That makes sense (and probably the most sense) as a sourcing option; still
wondering on possibility of sourcing from a Quattro Coupe.  I too agree they
probably wouldn't fit on a UFO'd car.  I was just curious were they had come
from, not really entertaining the idea of install on my car.

If they did fit...would make a good snow tire though. The 15x6 that is.

Just did some more research; looks like the R8's that came on the t43 5k 
were the same wheels as the early R8's on the quattro coupe.  According to 
some specs I found on the Quattro Coupe, the first R8's offered were 15x6 
with a 45mm offset.  No confirmation that it's the same bolt pattern, but 
I'd be willing to bet on it-everything else matches up, and people do like 
to put the 15x8's on there which I know are a 5x112 bolt pattern.

t43 5k still the better source.

To tie it back in to the 200...man, if you got G60's on your car, that'd be 
a nice set of snow's!
