  • 5 Lug Swap ?

    I normally dont take the time to go through the hassle of getting pictures uploaded to post anymore but i figured this would be worth the effort to share with everyone.

    Take into consideration here, nothing in this picture is "bolt-on" everything requires machine work.
    New pattern is 5x108

    So is this something you're going to do, or something you've done? I'm assuming it's just to get access to a better selection of wheels?

      It looks to me like he's done the machine work and made parts. Nice work. What wheel hub pilot diameter did you use?
      Are the parts on the car?

        Everything with the exception of rear rotors is finished.
        Parts will be on the car in time for SZ19 is my goal.
        Doing this mostly for wheel selection.

          Dang. Better wheel selection would be so nice. I've had these 17" Konig Tantrums on there since 2002. They're looking outdated.

                You have two SVT's with the swap? Or maybe I'm missing something. Looks great though. Assuming those are 18's, what's the offset on those?
