Help¡¡¡ 19" Atheo wheels for a R5 TDi

Hi, I´m going to buy in Germany very soon a 2004 R5 tdi with full options, I found the stock 17" rim very ugly and small. I have a contact in the US with a set of 19" Atheo Rims for sale. Does anybody know if this 19" rims will fit on my R5 TDI? Thanks a lot.

They won't. They have a 130mm bolt pattern whereas the 2004 R5 requires 120mm. VW is going to offer a wider selection of wheels that will fit your R5 in 2005, so I read.

Thanks, you are right. I think I will go for the "Dakar" ( 8J X 1 style rims with 235/60 R18. I believe is the only option in 18" for the R5 TDI.
Thanks
