That's because they're not 5x112. And get your own wheels!

I have to agree.
Try and do something original. Despite what some might think, original is still possible.

Are the springs new? Probably the strut mounts. Are the torqued?

that clunking is the springs binding i have it too on my megan coilovers with eibach springs. when i turn the wheel i can hear the springs making a clunking noise, pretty positive its from the car being maxed low and my coilvers set to soft. when i first installed the new eibach springs on my megan coilvers it did it for a while then went away. recently came back when i softened up the dampner setting but it is getting better little by little.

Thank you! I saw a red MK6 on grids in the forums. Just wondering if there is a set of 5x112 instead of using wobble bolts.
