Hmm, I found a whell fitment guide once on the internet, hit google, and yes
the only usable wheels that came up were ford, however i believe the centre
taper that fits over the centre of the hub is a different diameter, and as i
understand it that is extremely importan as the studs are not designed to
take all the load by themselves (as i recall you would need a 2mm thick
tapered tube). As far as offsets go i think the use greater offsets than the
audi et45 (i think they were et35's) which, i believe, if carefully chosen
would not cause much of a problem ( i used et37 on my cgt on 205 rubber with
only minor chafing on the rear).
All this info has been extracted from my head, late at night, so confirm it

Dont forget all the old school fords too , fiesta , cortina , pinto , capri
, escort. Also the mustang through the later 80's used the same bolt
pattern. Chances are you should be able to find a wheel you like in 4x108mm.
Also , if you did want to change the hubs , The family album says they use
different wheel bearings......
