Default Do you think these rims will be able to fit correctly?


These are the rims that I really want to get:



The AXIS Penta...

The size I would want is a 19x8.5 or 20x9, BUT...it's a 5-lug (5x100, 5x112, 5x114)...doesn't state the offset; only that's a "5-hole" (not sure what that means)

Would I be able to fit this rim safely? If it sticks out, that's not an issue since I've got fender flares. I just want to make sure I can fit it correctly and safely

Uhhh...I'm pretty sure he knew that.

I actually like those alot. Nice blend of a classy wheel, and a race-ish wheel...should look very nice on your car.

As for the offset is concerned...you definitely don't want those sticking out too far. I'd probably go with the 19, just because of width issues. I'm assuming you're going to be using some sort of 4 lug to 5 lug adaptor, or having one machined? That's going to push the wheel out farther too.

Thank God SOMEBODY caught on! That's why I made this post!

Thanks Shaolin...you're right about the width issue. Do you know any place where I can have a 4-to-5 lug adapter made?

Never thought of that. Which of the two would be easier/cost effective/safe?

adaptor= cheaper but possablity of it sticking out to far.

hub= safer look more custom but might cost you a pretty penny

Your best bet is probably going to get some 5 lug hubs from a different car and adapt them to fit. I have NO idea how to do that, though

If you make an adaptor, the wheel is obviously going to sit farther out....this puts more stress on the suspension components, and is generally a bad idea.
