Hi All,

Just thought I'd let people know that if you find a 5x112 wheel you like for
your Audi, but it has the more common cone seats instead of the our VAG ball
seats for the lug bolts, all is not lost.

Volvo S80 bolts fit perfectly. They're a bit longer, but have the right
thread, diameter, etc. They have a 19mm bolt head.

I have a set on my urq right now. Works great.
