Wheels Hub Question

Will these wheels fit my car in the front? I noticed hub is 66.53 and not 66.6?

These are Niche M117 Misano wheels matte black.

Fronts 18x8 42+ hub 66.53 run 235/40/18
Rears. 18x9.5 +48 hub 66.53 run 265/35/18

I was told they would fit, just concerned about hub

7/100ths of a millimeter? I think you're good.

As luck would have it I get tires mounted balanced and the front wheels are touching calipers, not by much so in the process of sanding inside the wheel spokes to fit

Wouldn't getting a 3-5mm spacer be easier?

Yes, most definitely. I am thinking 5 mm would work.

Two questions:

1) I assuming Stock Lug bolts will still work?
2) What type am I looking for that will fit car?

I am a rookie when it comes to spacers and wheel stuff.

DO NOT do that. Weakening the structural integrity of an already thin spoke could be a fatal mistake.

Is your new wheel conical seat or ball seat?
Most after market wheels are conical and you can not use OEM bolts.

There are many info on the web and vide on the youtube about stud length.
Google something like 'wheel spacer lug bolt length'

And don't use 5 mm spacers either... that puts all of the vertical load on the bolts instead of the hub flange which could be just as fatal as weakening the spokes when the bolts shear. In other words, get proper MB fitment wheels instead of trying to adapt something made for a VW.

Post a pic of the wheel center bore. Depending on how it looks you may be able to get away with a 5mm spacer. If it could work I have a set you can have. Just pay the shipping.

I ordered 10mm spacers which had hub centric lip. Thanks

Are you lowered? I think 18x9.5 +48 with a 10mm spacer (effectively 18x9.5 +38) is going to be a pretty tight fit in the back. That's 22mm wider than stock.

I'm running stock 18's with 10mm spacers and 275/35 tires and I'm pretty certain I'd rub if I was lowered and my math has my setup being 12mm more inset than you.

Either way I'm interested to see some pics installed if you have a chance.

Sell the car.






In all seriousness, get some spacers. Do not compromise the wheel. 8mm or 10mm and new bolts would do the trick just fine. Hopefully, the wheel wont stick out too much

Wheel specs Niche Misano stock height, my winter setup.

Front 18x8 +42 offset, added 10mm spacer for brake clearance and flush 235/40/18



Rears 18X9.5 +48 offset no spacer flush fit 265/35/18

I remember when I was in the VIP scene with my LS400, people would shave their brake calipers to make wheels fit! I thought I had seen it all lmao!

Just make sure everything is hubcentric, or you will get vibrations.
