Fitting 20's

So first of all.... This is NOT an opinion thread, i could care less what you guys think about cobalts on 20's. i just took over payments of my girls 07 2.2. I got rid of my old mercury sable and have the 20's from it still.

I know this is a super long shot but i have found 4 lug to 5 lug adapters that are 1 1/2 inches thick. and I want to know first if anyone has use 4-5 lug adapters and secondly, with that new offset will they even fit? tires are 235/35/20. Rims were over $2000 and they are 5x108 which i now have found out is very uncommon and i cant get any where near a decent price for these.


so basically i would like to get them on the cobalt if its possible, i know its crazy but im ok with that, please keep the harsh opinions out here im new to this forum and have already searched and seen the hate for 20's and dont want to hear it but would appreciate some help here.

as for other stuff i have the Morimoto h1 projector kit ready to go. tinted windows exhaust and i already made a full intake using autozone pieces and a spectre MAF adapter.

idk about adaptors but hopefully u find something that works,and yea 20s are not big in the cobalt/g5 community but ive seen it done and it all depends on the look of the car and the rims,ive seen 20s done right on cobalts twice and they looked sick,but most of the time i see 20s on a cobalt it looks completly ruined. i see the rims in the pic and im not sure if it will look great or not,but i hope for the best,pretty much every thing on the car has to be done right. so good luck

yea im not sure either, but i have kids and dont really want to spend the money on rims again, im just having a very hard time selling these because of the bolt pattern so i figured id try and use them.

other than that like i said im doing the projectors and spray the headlights black, getting those smoke LED tails (not the rice ones), tinting windows and if i stay with stock wheels ill drop it.

i have seen 4x100 to 5x114.3 adapters on honda forums and they seem popular i could do that and then run Smoked SS wheels right?

If i remember right the Chevy ss 5 lug wheelse are 5X125 so you would have to find that addapter. Its an odd setup as well not to common unless you have a chevy.

I did the adapter thing on my 'balt and it was a MESS, you can search for wheel adapters on this forum and see what I dealt with. Stick to the same lug pattern bro - you'll f up you car in the long run.
Been there done that.
But best of luck to you!

im kinda getting that feeling but i still want to keep looking i saw the video of the supra with prof installed 2 piece adapters wobbling like crazy on the lift at like 50mph. im worried about that off center wobble as well as having to cut studs.

i found the perfect adapters....but they are $369 im pretty much giving up. im not gunna spend the money on wheels for this car unless i get a trade for my 20's

Looking good is one thing. Not getting killed on the freeway due to wheels is another.

I just messaged Mike a former member here on FB. He does not have 20's but he has had about 5 different sets of 5 lug wheels on his cobalt using all different types and sizes of adapters. I asked him if he could give me any guidance.
