I finally found a replacement for two of my rims, but they are 6 lug nut compared to my current 5.

Will that make a major difference? Im asking because my rims have been discontinued & I cant find them anywhere.

Yes it will make a difference a 6 lug nut rim will not bolt to the 5 lug nut car due to a difference in amount of bolt holes. There are 5x5 to 6x5 adapters though that would push the rim out a bit so you would have to get rims with the proper backspacing to account for the adapters. - Peter

There was a Fleetwood on here that had factory Escalade 22" wheels filled and re-drilled. That might be a possibility.

fill and drill isn't cheap, but its the only way to do it right. 5 to 6 lug adapters are generally big as hell, about 2-2.5 inches thick. It'll push your wheel way out unless you find a really high offset 6lug wheel. Not likely to happen.

Whats the big deal? you will just not use that extra hole.... AMIRITE?
That was my way of thinking too, and why I asked question. I didnt know if I could do it that way & not cause any damage to my car. I asked my dad about it, he said ''It wont work!''

Figured I would ask to see if he was right (I probably could have worded my question better too)

UPDATE: He must have sold them already cause the posting is gone.

what kind of rims are they?
All I know is that they're 20 inch Kaotik rims. My bro gave them to me since mine were stolen, but the two back rims were slightly bent. I personally never liked them, but I figured anything was better than nothing and Im grateful for whatever comes my way.

Heres a few pics.

Tonyno was trying to find out what they were for me, but no luck yet.

Lol at everything. But yeah bro toss the rims and get something else if you don't like them, don't waste money time an effort to find a set or make them work.

If I had money Id DEFIANTLY toss them and get the 24's Ive had my eye on since last year. College comes first before any car to me & not having a steady income influences it too lol. By the time I save up enough for them I bet they're gonna be discontinued lol.
