Default Quattro wheels on a Coupe

I have an '87 Coupe GT which I am currently in the process of restoring.

It has the standard fitment Ronal wheels on the car now, however I've always preferred the deeper dish look of the Ronals fitted to the Quattro.

I've see a few GT's with the Quattro wheels on them on google, just wondered if it's as simple as a straight swap? Will there be any modification etc required? Cheers

If my understanding of the issues involved is correct, then; No. in a word.

The ur-quattro wheel is a 5x112 stud pattern, 8"x15" wheel, whereas all the other coupes are 4 stud.
There exists a 4 stud 7" wheel, with a deeper dish, but they appear to be quite rare.

These wheels? 7x15s. 4x108.

Got to admit I like the deep dish look, but I'm happy with my old Speedline SL359's ( 7j 15H2 ET45) on my 86 cq... unless a bargain price set show up of course. Good luck with your hunt.

See the post at 9.52 pm by Jake1 re ronal wheels it says he has a set of ronals 7j wide in 4 x 108 stud size available for sale which I assume to be 15 inch as I don;t recall them being made in the smaller 14 inch size.

I've seen the wider rim ronals in the smaller 4x100 14". Their pretty rare, but I've seen them on 80 sports...

Aside from this I have a set of the wider ronals on my coupe quattro in the 4x108 pattern. Sorry not selling them!!
