4 lugs rims, or conversion?

So I've been on the hunt for some new rims. All the websites and everything I've looked on are 5 lug wheels. Anyone know a decently priced website (preferably Canadian to avoid duties and everything) or would I be best off trying to 5 lug conversion, and if so. What's all needed. I'm sure I'd need to switch more then the hubs, especially the tears being drums. Suggestions? 2006 cobalt LT.

Decently priced, implies you want to do at low cost. Converting to 5 stud unless you have a donor car is going to cost quite a bit. Keep looking on the internet for 4 hole rims. There are plenty of sites. Check tire stores for starters to see if they have anything you like. Fast wheels for instance has a lot of different styles. http://www.fastwheels.ca/

Minimum
a 5 lug swap is going to cost is around $600 but probably more. I've done it and the way I did the swap it was way more.

Oor you could go to a junk yard and pull the whole set up off of a 5 lug Balt for about $200 and have it all on in about 3-4 hours. Rotors/drums are going to need to be replaced of course but they're the cheapest part of the conversion.

the 4 lug pattern is more common and has more aftermarket wheel options, just keep it

I agree with Fitz, the only 5 lug conversion I would consider is one to 5x114.3. The swap is not worth it though IMO

I'm happy with the 5x110 swap I did, I wan't just looking for wheels, I have a set of IRL, SS/TC and PF01's at the moment, and wanted brakes too.
