    Is it safe to just re drill the disc to make it fit a 4 stud?

    if its done proffesionally and done right it should by rights be ok but i wouldnt run it on my car its obviously going to be weaker and i would be worried under heavy breaking that the disc may fracture or crack

    if you look at the discs a couple of the holes are only just clear of the originals .. im talking by about 1mm!!! :O

    i know youll have 2 bolts holding the disc on to support it but still
    i wouldn't touch em .. but thats just me

    Who needs re-drilled discs of Fiat coupe turbo discs.... You can get 280mm 4-stud OEM Vauxhall discs you know....
