looking for shops that can do hub conversion

hello guys
I have been thinking about running some low offset wheels that are not normally made for bimmers
so a PCD change is a must

I have been looking for custom PCD adapting spacers and I did found them for reasonable prices
but I still want decent dish on the car
so I'd like to know if there is any shop around GTA can do it

thanks!

Don't change the hubs, redrill the wheels.

Even still, I think you're insane. SO many nice low offset 5x120 wheels.

yes I am insane...
but wouldn't re- drilling weaken the structure?
can it be really done?
if re-drilling works I def go for it

It probably does weaken it, but not to anything extreme. I know plenty of (properly) redrilled wheels running around, some even bashing around tracks.

The spacers would kill any dish.
