    Default Wheel Conversion

    Guys - is there anyway of converting our standard 5x4.5 wheel offset to a 6x1.35 (i believe). a guy here at work is selling some wheels with almost brand new nitto's on them for 750. but i was wondering if there was even a conversion kit possible to do this.

    thanks

    6x1.35???? that would be pretty small????
    Are you sure you don't mean 6x5.5"?

    If so you can get different adapters for it.

    What wheel are the Nitto's on? Couldn't you just change out your wheels?

    Yes, there are bolt pattern conversions available to go from 5x4.5" to 6x5.5". However, almost all bolt pattern conversion adaptors are 1.75" thick, so take that into account when looking at the amount of backspacing the wheels you are thinking about switching to have.
