Default 5x112 Bolt Pattern Audi A5 Wheels

I looked and searched and found not whole a lot in regards to Audi A5 wheels or anyone trying to use 5x112 bolt pattern wheels.
I'm just trying to figure out what would it take to make them work on my maxima if there is a way. Adapters ?
I noticed a lot of Audi and VW people looking for reverse solution.

18" wheels
5x112 bolt pattern,
Offset : 35mm,
Hub Size : 66.6mm

I'm guessing it's a long shot but I have to ask since I can have them for nothing and always loved the look.

Are you sure they're not 5 lug universal? Some wheels have 5x112 and 5x114.3 .. If they're not universal, i'd search for wheels that fit your car and avoid adapters.

Look into PCD variation lug nuts, also known as wobble nuts.

Something like this:

Plenty of wheels with correct fitment. I would not do an adapter or VW wheels when there are plenty to chose from in the 5x114.3.

LOL. I didn't really know about them either, I'm used to people talking about wobble bolts, but figured if they have wobble bolts for euro cars they should have wobble nuts for studs.

How the hell would they install those of the studs won't even go in the stud holes on the wheel?

Going from 112 to 114.3, I believe the studs do go in, they just aren't centered in the hole, which only means the wheels aren't lugcentric. The wobble bolts/nuts have a moving conical seat so that they can position themselves in the correct location. This actually just brought to my attention something that is probably obvious to people who know about wobble bolts/nuts, you also have to use hubcentric rings since the wheels aren't lugcentric in order to have the wheel correctly centered.
