My $.02. VW guys do it all the time putting Porshe and Audi wheels on Mk1-Mk3 4-lug Golf/GTI/Jettas. If they were so unsafe, there'd probably be a lot of dead VW guys.

they do make them, but not a good idea. If nothing else, and ignoring the shearing issues put onto the adaptors, they screw up the offset of the wheel. If you must have them, take the rotor to a machinist and have him punch out the 4 lugs and drill them for 5 lugs. Make sure they are good though, you want it exactly in the center, and you want it balanced.

Pete, you can find see wheel adapters at www.wheeladapter.com

I have talked to alot of people who have used them with no problems.(mainly on 79-85 rx7's which have a 4x110, extremely un common bolt pattern) I have never actually heard of any recorded issues with safety, but that doesnt truly mean theyre safe.
