Default installing 5x100mm wheels on 4x108mm hub

I'm got a very nice set of rims and tires that are 5x100mm bolt pattern from a broken-down Volkwagen Jetta VR6. They have very nice unused Toyo Proxies on the rims.

I'm short of cash to buy a brand new set of tires for my new car, which is a 2006 Ford Focus. The Focus has a bolt pattern of 4x108mm.

I'm basically looking for an adapter that will allow me to install the VW rims onto my Focus.

So, the adapter needs to accept both 5x100mm and 4x108mm. I don't care if the tire sticks out from the wheel well just a little because of the thickness of the adapter.

If these adapters exist, could I get some links as to where I can purchase them?

Thanks!!!

I don't condone the use of them, but a good set will usually set you back about $250. just google it many companies make them also ebay has them.

better off buying cheap rims to fit the existing tire. Safer and a longer lasting solution

+1 to not having wheel adapters. I had a set on an old Lincoln I used to drive. The one gave out and sheared all the wheel studs when I was going down the road...
