The OEM VW/Audi wheel picture gallery has been updated, it now has many many wheels.

FYI, the mk4 passat and all mk5 cars use 5x112 bolt pattern, earlier cars did not. This means that the wheels are not interchangeable without some modification. Touareg wheels have also been added but they use 5x130 bolt pattern. It's there just because.

Yes, you can make anything fit with enough adapter plates, but I don't suggest it. I don't like using wheel adapters, I would rather just find a wheel that fits. The bolt pattern is different, which means that the holes for the lug bolts are in different spots.

It's best to not use spacers that are too long, make sure the lugs have enough threads to hold the wheel, sometimes when you use a spacer, you have to use longer lug studs or bolts.
