    Ok so im skint and my mate's gone bought some black team dynamics pro race 1.2 alloys for is astra nurburgring but doesnt like, prefers the white one's he's got on.

    Thank's boxxer but there's no point, just addign extra unsprung weight so would defeat the point in fitting them.

    So my mates just phoned asking me if im still interested in his wheels and i was like yeah but im kind of jobless and plus they wont fit, he then said well his mate has drilled a fair few alloys to allow a few mm compensation to alloy various fitments etc and says they sit fine due to the larger upper sections of the locking nuts holding them.
    Sounds good but could there be any downsides?

    If ya want them just get the adapters! they can't be that much heavier than spacers that you would probibly put on there right?

    I WOULD NOT FIT ALLOYS THAT'S BEEN DRILLED DUDE!

    Your mates suggestion sounds like, and is, a bodge job! Just get the correct fitment or some proper hub adaptors.
