Do you just change the axel ends? About how much do you think this would cost? Once again, this is just an idea of mine, I know it's better to dump all that money under the hood.
i believe that you can have rims remade with the universal patern that allows you to put them on basically anything, but from what i've heard it's bloody costy! a friend of mine got 4-stud TE37's and wanted to drop them on his Mazda6 and that's a 5-stud patern, i seem to remember him paying like $350aud each mag for re-studded universal studing.
as stated just before, it could be cheaper to just get new mags, sell those and buy others if that's more convinient.
