5 stud 110 , is the bolt pattern ,
If you are replacing like for like then you could always try that well known auction site
That's the first I've known , normally you find 19" are known for cracking , GM snowflake are well known .

thank you for that info,
i keep seeing when looking for a new set things like

  • Width : 8.5J
  • Offset : 35 to 45
do these matter or make any difference or should i just by 19 inch with a stud pattern of 5 110

Off set basically is how far it sits inside the wheel arch ,( I think as measured from the hub ) so as far as I can understand the higher the offset the wider the stance a lot of science, mine are 40 offset , 8j ( rim width) they are off a Vauxhall VXR 19" but also I added 20mm hub spacers so it throws the wheel out further image.jpg
