I'm after some Cav Turbo rims for my Corsa B, but obviously the big problem is that they're 5 stud... Anyone know what works involved converting to 5 stud? Can you just get stud adapters? I don't know what any of it would cost or which is the better choice. Any help is appreciated! Thanks

Reckon re-drilling some hubs would be safe? The original holes would be properly welded up and machined flat, then a proper machinist would be drilling new holes

4 stud hubs would be to small to have drilled,5 stub hub has a bigger circle of diameter

Cheers pal, i'm thinking 22mm spacing on each wheel is a bit too much though? Especially seen as my cesaro's are already pretty close to my arches, so 16s and spaced out might be a bit close!

Changing hubs is the only way.

why not use hub centric changers, i have a VW friend who uses them.
paid about 90 quid i think for them, and the wheels what ever cost that is.

You could always change the PCD of the wheel. there are companies that will fil and weld the wheel, and redrill to the desired PCD. Around 50 a wheel i believe

I've been looking into this as i'd seen a guy from South Africa on here with some 4 stud Turbo's in a picture, but wasnt sure if it was safe to do so. Any idea what places would weld it up? My mate works in a big machinist place so im guessing i could get him to redrill the wheels?

VooDoo Motorsport

On the link there is a simple form to fill out. Fill this out explaining what you need, and they will get back to you. Prices depend on the specific wheel, so they will ask for mearurments and maybe pictures.

Edit: I'm not sure about the process. I personally would leave it to people that have done it before.

Ahh nice one, i'll see what they say, probably not worth it just to put some Cav Turbo rims on, especially if theres a chance the wheel will just crumble as soon as i hit a pot hole accidently haha

That would be the issue I have. Maybe ot worth it for Cav Turbo rims, but it opens the option of having wheels on the car that no-one else would.

redrilling is perfectly safe to do provided it's done by someone proper.

the only problem with cav turbo's is that the holes are visible (no centrecap to hide it) so whoever does it will have to spend longer making it all perfect etc

it seems alot of hassle to go to for a cheap set of cav turbos tbh

I asked about this, and was told if I had the wheels refurbed, you would not be able to tell.
