Default Wheels issue 2006 1500 mega cab

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a Mega Cab, all the wheels have 17" 8 lugs wheels, I recently bought 20" rims and tires, but the ones that I acquired have 5 lugs, I was wondering if their is a convertion kit that could take my 8 lug into a 5 lug, so that I could use the 20" that I acquired, thanks.

i think you would have to change the hub altogether, but if you cant , why would you want to do that reduction anyrate...

I would sell the rims and just buy a set that are 8 lugs. The 5 lugs will be taking allot more weight expecially on the fronts if you have the BIG C......... Post some pictures of the wheels....

i would get rid of the 5 lugs and get 8 lugs as well. the 8 lugs are rated for more weight.

I am not aware of any conversion, you would have to change the hub I'm thinking. But I could be wrong.............
