Your wheels? It would probably look like crap and I doubt it would work. you can do it though with rotors

+1.

Even if you weld the existing holes and redrill, it's not a good idea unless you never run the car hard.
Forged is worse unless you re-heattreat the rims (after welding up existing holes and then redrilling), then you would have to repaint them. By then, you could have almost just bought new rims with the correct pattern size.

There are some wheels out there with 2 different hole patterns, I don't even really like those.

Any particular reason why forging, specifically, matters? It's pretty unlikely that they were heat treated again after machining from the factory...

Could the hubs be redrilled? I've heard of people getting it done on other cars.
