240sx 4-lug to 5-lug convertion...

my 95 240sx only has 4 lugs and i wanted to swap them over to 5-lug config. would it be easier to go to a junk yard and get the parts or just to buy them?

If you can find what you need in a junkyard then go that route. Itll be cheaper.


PS- I love Clearwater, FL. My best vacation was there.

I just want to say this
YOUR ENGINE IS BEAUTIFUL
how many miles on it
and why are you interested in doing this conversion?
thre are good rims with both the 4 and 5 lug configurations.
im sure that almost any rim you want you can get in either config
ive even seen rims 5x100 or 5x102
im guessin thats the distance or sometihng
bcease 5 lug rims i see come with 10 holes
il find a pic and post but im sure you know what i mean

Well in some cases you can just get adapters and others you have to replace the axel shaft, not sure if thats all though.
