Is It Possible?

Is it at all possible to convert the 4lug wheel set up over to the 5lug set up that is on the SS? If so what all would be needed?

And yes it's possible....and it's really not practical unless you are extremely into AutoX and that sorts of stuff. IT's not cheap either...

See i really like the SS rims but they are 5 lug rims. See i didn't know know if it could be done just doing a swap with some of the ss parts from a salvage yard.

just to let you know that when you get your 5 lug conversion you will have a 5x110 lug pattern, so you will have all of about 40 rims to choose from... as of right now you have 4x100... which means you can pick from about 50,000 rims..... see what im saying??

I agree. I bought a wheel adapter that changed my pattern from 4x100 to 4x125 and stuck the wheels out an inch. I'll NEVER do that again!!!
