Rear 5-lug Conversion

Post by thehulk » 22 Mar 2018 12:10

I am looking into getting the front of my project 510 up to speed with Techno Toy's coilovers and wilwood brake upgrades up front. They also carry billet hubs that I would like to get to replace my front hubs that somebody welded the studs to. I would love to move to the 5-lug version of these hubs, mostly for wheel choice, but can't find and figure out what my options are on the rear. Any suggestions? I found a few things in the search, but they are likely outdated.

Thanks in advance.

Why convert to 5 lug?

Plenty of new and vintage wheels out there with just about any offset you'd ever need for flared or unflared 510's.

Just curious as to what the motivation is? But when known, there are many ways to go about this depending on what you needs and desires are.

5 lug is great!

I'm currently working on a rear CV axle conversion that would come complete with rear 5 lug axles. Once complete, this set will be up for sale. PM me if you would like more details.

Mario from TSR will redrill/weld the rear hubs to 5 lug.

On a few searches for wheels, I've found a lot more options with the 5-lug wheels. That's the main reason. And I figured if I'm going to be upgrading the hell out of this car, may as well go all out, right?

If that's the route I end up taking, I'll definitely give you a shout. Thanks!
