    hi all just wanted people's opinion on using wobble bolts? I have seen Accords with 5x112 stud pattern wheels on. is it just a case of spigot rings and wobble bolts?

    The whole concept behind them scares me, where wheels are concerned it's pretty obvious, you've got to be dead careful. That angled pressure you exhibit on the studs from the "wobble nuts" has been known to cause the studs themselves to sheer, we're talking here that a wheel could come off at speed and leave both you and the car totalled.

    Some people consider them safe, you'll find people telling stories of running these things for tens of thousands of miles. Personally, I wouldn't ever take the risk - the few horror stories are enough for me.

    The safest solution by a mile if you're determined to run 5x112 PCD are wheel plate adaptors.
