Is it safe to re-drill rims to have diffrent lug patterns ?
ScionScotty said:I already talked to ya, but ill answer it here too. Itll depend on the wheel in question. Some have the lugs built into the spokes basically, and wont allow it really. You're best bet is to find a set with center caps that hide a flat bottom. That flat place is easiest to fill and redrill if necessary. (or just redrill). It is safe in quite a few applications, if you get a good shop to do it. I swear, if you get out your handdrill and try, I WILL kick your butt. lol.
Of course it would be ideal, but its cheaper Ive found to do the PCD changers. Its a money issue too. The spacers I have are still the 12x1.5 that comes stock on our cars, so I guess I dont have to worry about any differences of crossed, backed off, and etc. Theyre just the same as stock pretty much. It would be ideal I agree to have the proper fitting wheels though on the hub without spacers, and have that extra 30mm of lip!EticketXb said:Your better off filln-n-drilln if the wheel is capable of being filled and drilled. Those spacers have alot of threads that can get crossed, back off, etc. I destoryed more than a few cars in my days trying to get those damn things off.......Just my 2 cents..........
Reading the description for that template it looks as though it's just a product Summit designed to get money out of people that are too stupid or lazy to search for what bolt pattern their car is. I don't think those templates are an acurate measuring device.Padanky said:Here is a template, I'm not sure if it is made for drilling thru but it will help.
