I have some 5x114.3 wheels I want to put on a 4x114.3 car. I know I can use adapters. The other choice is to fill and redrill. Problem is, these wheels don't have a central lug cover to cover up the redrilling. Would this be possible to do cleanly, or clean up enough that it wouldn't look like ass?
>pic related, a redrilled wheel that HAS a lug cover
I got some redrilled BBS 5 to 4 lug, and they don't look near as nice as that, just aluminum piled into the old holes with a welder.
I don't think you're gonna get something nicer than your pic right there desu.
>BUT MUH ARs
I'm fully aware they're dumb wheels. I like them.
American Racing 39.
the most 90's wheel of all time.
these are 15x7. took me a long time to find them in the size I wanted.
>mfw I kept finding them in 16.5"
I can get adapters, but I've been told they're generally not the "Safest" way to do things, and if I'm putting distance on the car, I'd rather not have to do wheel bearings every few thousand miles.
damn anon, many thanks
what car is it? perhaps the higher end models had 5 lug hubs
1973 Toyota Celica.
nope, only 4 lug all the way.
The wheels themselves are generally not thought of as valuable or anything. They're still uncommon in a good bolt pattern or size.
I need to sand and re-clearcoat them.
they don't look so well with only 4 bolts
I'm in th same position as you.
I want to gt a set of those exact ARs (or slotmags) for my Skyline and I can only ever find them in 6 lug for Hiluxes and Pajeros etc
its true, I've already got a set of Direzza Star Spec Z1s sitting around in 15" that will be going on them.
holes shouldn't overlap that much.I'd just use one of the original holes. but if you say so...
Didn't they make a version of those with a lug nut cover? Just get those and do that.
It's going to look like ass unless you have a machine shop fill in the old holes completely and drill in new ones factory-style. If that's how you want to spend $100-200 per wheel (generously assuming a $50/hr shop rate and only 2-4 hours per wheel) then go for it.
