Very bad idea, that would weaken it too much. There are kits to do a 5 lug conversion on your car, but they cost way more than a nice set of 4 lug aftermarket rims

Sure you can rebolt them you can do anything if you have the time and money or skill. Is it worth it, NO. Is it unsafe, YES. Do a 5 lug conversion or find a nice set of 4 lug wheels my friend.

Get the conversion or find a nice set of 4 lugs.. I believe I have even seen a company somewhere that makes SS style looking rims in the 4 lug pattern for you base model guys.

There are TONS of aftermarket 4 lug wheels compared to the 5 lug counterpart. I guess the brighter side is we can mount 5 lug HHR, G5 GT, G6, Malibu, Aura wheels etc. Besides SS type.

you can also have wheel adapters made.. try adaptitusa.com.

I have used their spacers and adapters on some off road trucks without any failures.

the wheels would stick out too much if you used adapters
