I don't know... cheaper than adapters...

Seem pretty cheap since they include drill bits. May have to get the 4x114-4x100 ones for the MG

And I was just contemplating how I was going to make Chevy wheels fit on a Ford axle.....

Doh! I've already removed the Ford studs.

those are really cool. i think i shall order some 4.5 to 5x5 ones to fix my problem of using ford axles under my plymouth, since i have a metric tonne of 5x5 wheels.

In reply to novaderrik:

Sweet. So you'll make up some sets for us including drill guides and bits for say... $50?

So... Essentially you're bragging about having access to a CNC machine...

It's not like we were sitting here wondering how they are getting made...

I also think it's a good price since it includes drill bits but honestly having done this whole redrill thing once before (made my own pattern) im kind of dubious of using only two bit sizes. Im sure it will work if you are careful but normally i wouldnt make that kind of jump in bit sizes if i had a choice.

I have no affiliation... just found it on the net and thought it might be of interest.

I always thought they'd be easy to make with the right equipment. Even maybe some lathed bushings to make the template hub-centric.

That's how i did mine. I took a brake rotor with the new pattern, had a friend with lathe access make a custom hub centric ring to center it, and used a set of "transfer punches" from harbor freight to mark the hub for drilling.

Oh, useful to eventually need to change my wheel pattern on the datsun replica so the front (5-bolt dodge dakota) and the back (4-bolt datsun 910) match. I may go this route.

OTOH, I had been leaning towards adapters because they could also widen the track of the rear so it would better match the front.

Great idea unless you have a set up like this. You dont' want to put the new studs in a weak area. I can see some people doing that.

Those look very similar to the hubs for a TR8. That's why we just redrill in the same hole but to a bigger offset hole, and use bigger knurled end studs to go from 4X95.25 to 4X100. Works out great and only costs a few bucks to have the machine shop do it.

Umm... read the fricken site... It says they can probably make templates in any size you ask for. Just might cost a bit more for them to do the set-up... or maybe not...
