    Converting from 5-bolt to 6 bolt wheels, Feasible?

    Any one ever done this? Is it feasible?

    I take it from the overwhelming sound of crickets in this thread, that no one has done this and/or it's not feasible....

    What age pickup are you working on? If it is obs, it's pretty easy. If it is square, it gets trickier.

    edit: i did not realize we were in troll mode:

    to make it easy on yourself i would just put the wheel on and use the only 5 of the lugnuts to secure wheel to hub, and leave one hole empty.

    I have a set of 20s with tires on them that have less than 5K miles I'd like to put on, but they are 6 bolt pattern from my old Dakota.

    Yeah, Ive been trying to sell the rims without any luck. Not many vehicles use this bolt pattern. A few Dodges and a few Nissans....
