    5 stud to 4 stud?

    hi all, i placed a deposit for a set of alloys for my old astra before it was crashed, i have now paid for them as my deposit was non refundable! the only problem is that theese wheels are four stud and my new car is five stud! however i have fell in love with theese wheels again and want them on my car!!!! is there any way i can have them re drilled to be five stud? or convert my car to four stud?

    cheers Paul

    You'll be best off whacking them up in the for sale section, take your tyres off.. sell the alloys then with the money you get for them buy the same set in 5 stud if they do them.. and put your tyres back on.

    Can't see it being drilled to 5 stud tbh.

    You can get hub adaptors to convert them, but they will mess up the offset/handling/steering bit time.

    So I'm not gonna recommend then and strongly suggest you don't consider them.

    Are the wheels absolutely brand new,if so then I would try and do a deal with the ppl u bought them from-they may just charge u a small handling fee and re-sell the wheels with discount!

    You dont wana be changing car to 4 stud-costly/time consuming,and i wouldnt think the insurance would be happy-let allone when u sell the car with an alteration like that!

    why dont they just make all vxl wheels 5 stud-it would be so much easier,but then that would be too simple!

    sell the wheels, keey tyres if you have any.

    I would never change the hubs on a car for a set of rims, no matter how nice they were
