4 to 5 Lug Adapter, safe or no ?

Simple question I suppose.
Would like to, as many other, switch to a 5 lug bolt pattern.

Ive done some research and found the most effective way is to do a maxima axle swap ...

But looking around, and what not, came across a 4 to 5 lug adapter plate...similar to a wheel spacer:


Also, on that one above, it says its 1.8" thick ...would that be a problem ?

Would these be 100% safe for DD ?
100% safe for AutoX ?

Thanks for looking and any responses .... just figuring things out I suppose.

You want 5 lugs, either change out the required parts or buy a car that came with them.......................................

I knew this would happen ...
I tried searching first ... but didnt see an answer as to if those adapter plates are safe or not.

Still didnt answer my three(3) questions....

Thanks anywho.

u can ask the 240 crowd. since alot of the 180/240 cars have the 4 bolt pattern and i'm sure they have tried using these 4-5 lug adapter before. but then again, the axel swap for them is so easy........

i used to own a 240sx until not too long ago... and i had those... they are 100% safe... once you put it on they will not move... or rattle... the only thing is that the offset would be different now because like you said its 1 inch and 8 something thick... so if you put a regular rim its going to stick out mexican style...

Thanks for the feedback bro, appreciate it.
All I was looking for ....

If anyone else has experience with these, let us know if it was a bad or good experience.

And yea ...the almost 2 inch offset is crazy ...that by itself, makes me not want to do it ... i was just looking into things.

No, they aren't safe, so that will take care of your other 2 questions.

I have no idea if they're safe or not, but I wouldn't do it. Just do the actual conversion and the work to do it right, or just stick to wheels that fit. Just my $0.02 though.

BTW, was there a specific reason you want/need 5 lug? Specific wheel, etc.? Also if you were going to autocross, these wouldn't be legal for STX. Just an FYI.

I saw a 5 lug wheel that was cool....and at the same time saw someone saying they have those adpater plates which Ive seen before. So i thought i'd pose the question if they were safe or not, more so for other people down the road ...

P.S. the wheels i found in 5, are offered in 4 in the size I need, and bolt pattern so I dont need these....was just curious.

Well I'm not doing it .... i was considering it, then decided not worth it anymore.

Plus my B14 is all ripped to $h*t since it was stolen, and I was planning on getting an SR20 in there, but now, i'm gonna save up for a VQ swap into that car.

** so help me out here, and buy the stuff I have for sale **
