I suspect that the 5K wheels don't have enough "dish" in them to clear the
saucer section of the UFOs, which sticks out quite a bit. But hey,
try-before-buy couldn't hurt.
The steel wheels I got from the Tire Rack several years ago (winter 1997,
when I got my 200q20v) have the following markings:
Lemmers 2150914 (the manufacturer, I suspect)
7Jx15 H2 ET 40
OOOO (Audi) 4A0 601 025K
If your 5K wheels happen to match that Audi part number they should work,
these have a pretty big hump to clear the saucer section, though it doesn't
really seem much bigger than the one on my similar VW winter wheels.
