Hey everyone i have been offered a a killer deal on a set of 17" Lenso's that previously lived on a SP20 ... only problem is the rims are 5 stud

Since my 2003 BJII protege only has a 4 stuid setup, what would i need to convert this to 5 stud?

Will GT-R familia Hubs fit, as i can get these for next to nothing ....


any help would be greatly apreciated

some one on this forum has done a 4 to 5 stud conversion recently though, do a search. :wink:

No the GTR is 5 stud, the GTX is 4.
Not sure if it will fit the GTR runs totally different brakes etc and
not sure if your hubs are the right size ie thickness & splines that
would be the first thing I checked.

nope, the GTX and GTR are both BG, just different versions of the same car. :)

GTX - 4WD turbo 130kw ... pretty body kit

GTR - 4WD turbo 150kw ... fordged pistons and other fancy stuff ... big arsed body kit ... designed to win WRC ... pitty the gearbox didnt come to the party

hmm i think you have a few options here.

option 1: SP20 hubs should work best in this instance as all BJII's use the same brakes. finding some at the right price might be a tad difficult though.

option 2: buy lenso wheels if theyve got good rubber. find out how much trade in/resale value they have and keep the tyres. do the sums and work out if you can make money. keep tyres for new 4 stud 17"s

option 3: buy new 4 stud wheels and tyres

option 4: spend cash elsewhere :P
