It's not just bolt pattern one factor, you have to think about the offset and the CB (Centre Bore). For example, Audi A4 rim is 5x112, offset 35 to 45, exact as same as Mercedes C220, but the CB is 57.1, smaller than C220's CB 66.6, Audi A4 rim won't fit C220, but the other way around, C220 rim will fit A4 car. That's because small CB rim won't fit big CB car, big CB rim will fit small CB car provided bolt pattern and offset all are same.

Ok so is there any solution to this issue? I just bought a set of audi A4 wheels for my 95 c220. The bolt pattern is the same but the center bore is smaller on the audi wheels. Is there any adapter or am I just screwed? Thanks in advance.

"I just bought a chevy transmission for my ford..."

Why would you purposely buy rims that don't fit?

There are adapters to do most anything, but the quality ones are not cheap and the cheap ones may leave you with a non-concentric mounting so that your wheel effectively orbits the true center on an elliptical path...not a ride enhancer. They also decrease offset (it's a spacer, after all) and may crack and fail.

That's a whole lot of potential downside just to have a certain "look". But if you want it, start googling. Then google the sellers and manufacturers to see what people say about them.

Me, I'd just buy wheels designed for the car.

Honestly I didn't think the center bore would be an issue. Well now I know it is. I sold the wheels on Cl and now I am buying a new set that actually fit.
