Has anyone redrilled their rims to fit a different PCD? Is it safe? Who did the job? I am looking to redrill a 5*114.3 rim to a 5*120.

P.S. don't tell me to search for proper wheels or get adapters.

That's gonna be hard, its always easier to go larger PCD to smaller PCD.

It is safe, but depends on how the wheels were made, if the back side has pockets and you are making huge change in the PCD, you are screwed, but if its solid and it doesn't hit the spokes, then you should be fine.

Anyone would know a place I can take the rims to? I found 17x10 RPF1 rims with perfect offsets and weight and price, but they are 5x114.3. If redrilling is possible this really is the best option.

do you know what the rims look like on the backside? where does the spokes come in? did they ever made one in 5x120?

Sorry for the thread jack. But do they make adapters for 5 x 114 to 5 x 120? I plan on using my PIAA wheels from my RX8 on the 335.

The wheels better be high offset, check this guy out, he made all my adapters and he's one of the best, Fred is also quite a legend in drag racing.

CheapThrills in Milton, used to do it, but I have not been there for a while. The best (safest) way to do it is to enlarge the hole and put in an insert in it. But as as Chigga mentioned, it depends on how the back side is.

I've had it done and would do it again for the right wheel, MemoryFab.com has some nice aggressive wheels, but mostly 5X114.3, they charge about $300 to change the PCD for a set of 4.

Cheap Thrills is not the same anymore, the guy who owned it sold everything to the new guys that sell new stuff, Mike who used to work there and do all the funky work is in Acton now, called Acton Tires, he still puts tires on for me.
