Default Kics 5x100 to 5x114.3 conversion

Want to know if anyone is running these or has any experience with them?? Seems like a cool idea except for 15mm being the thinnest they make it in. Any opinions will help thx.

im not a fan of spacers, especially with the wheel bearings we get on our cars. though I can understand why youd want the conversion, im doing a full conversion swapping the hubs and whatnot to get 5x114.3 but thats going to be expensive.

it can be done. There are plenty of wheels with offsets into the 50's or 60's and I know project kics makes 15mm 5x100 to 5x114 spacers.

This is the problem with them... you're gonna have some pretty ugly looking wheels when it all comes down to it. offsets in the 50's or 60's are gonna make for almost a completely flat-face wheel. Of course, there are people here running +30 offsets, so you could go with a +45 and the spacers- but it would take a lot of work to make it fit.

yep. The only good looking wheels with that high of an offset would be something like bbs lm's or similar, and even then a lip would have been nice. I put down a deposit on 18x9.5 +38 wheels for 5x100 bolt pattern. I'm not sure if your looking for wide or just be able to run different styles of rims, but custom ordering is definitely an option.

Wide wheels ftmfw!! no ive noticed like the work group buys those wheels are dope i just wanted i bit more of a variety to choose from with widths 9 or wider but 15mm is a wide spacer, and switching out hubs is expensive and a pain in the a$$ from what i hear.
