Wheel Specs for Turbo R/Brooklands

My tyres will need replacing soon, but toying with idea of replacing wheels completely using adaptors to a different stud pattern

Can anyone confirm what the wheel stud pattern is (think its 5x135) alongside the default wheel ET (front &rear if differs pls) & tyre profile specs

Guessing this answer may vary a tad for different alloy size range

I have used adaptors for Porsche wheels onto a VW before, but would it be safe given the weight of the vehicle? Love to see an example or two if anyone's running them

Thanks in advance!

Ok, so from the spare wheel i can confirm current specs are:

16x7J, Et41 with 235/65/16 tyres

Anyone be able to confirm if this wheel spec is used all round? or if front/rear differ? Also still need wheel pattern...5x135 sound right?

Thanks in advance!

Hi you don't want to go away from wheels that are made for the car
or if you do make shore there for a 4x4 that can take the weight

Hi, yes took that under consideration and wheels will be from a land-rover so will take considerable load with around 100kg stock weight difference (>Bentley). Just having a nightmare with finding out wheel stud pattern as coming across different results whilst scouring the web with 5x135, 5x155 and 5x160 coming up

Edit: just read my above posts and can conf wheel ET is 41 all round

i looked about 4 years ago for my last car and ended up on a blank
the p38 wheel is the same as a BMW and will fit Bentley's from 1998/9 on
just have your 17 refurbished and look for some treads that you like

The lr wheels are indeed 5x120, but sure the bentley patterns different..i'm on a P reg brooklands but assumed the stud pattern didnt change again until following model and think that went 5x112? The wheels i have now are near mint but i do really want to have the 18s fitted and also sub ability to change wheels again at a latter stage

Not sure how long this will stay valid as ebay do tend to delete ads after a while but this chap strapped on Arnage wheels ok. Last pic in his ad actually shows the car wearing them (also shows the rather bad looking chrome arches )

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...vip=true&rt=nc

The ET is 61 for the Arnage which then adds to confusion as he has 30mm and 50mm thick adaptors, which effectively makes his new wheel ET 31 (Front) and ET11 (Rear). The outside arch to wheel line certainly has tolerance to to be increased out as the default wheels do sit inwards but i would have thought the 30 mark would be max? Unfortunately the chap bought the wheels with spacers so he didn't have much additional info on this matter

I actually have purchased the land rover wheels already so its just a case of getting the stud pattern and some maths right on the measurements for the adapters now
