    Default Re-drilling 5 stud wheels

    I have a set of BMW Style 5 basket weave wheels,5x120
    and I'm wondering if is possible to have them re-drilled to fit the 4 stud hubs on my Z.
    Has anyone ever done this?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    I guess I'm thinking about this the wrong way around, I suppose I should really be changing my 4 stud hubs for 5 stud.

    Is the offset the same? Might be better off to use an adapter/spacer if the Bimmer wheels are set in compared to Nissan. If they're set out, then the wheels won't fit right anyway even with the new hubs. Just a consideration before you get too far in to it.

    It's really not worth the Hassle with regular basket weaves. If they were alpina wheels or something maybe. By the time you convert or buy spacers you will be more into the wheels than just a nice set of rota panasport replicas.
