    new dude needs help with hubs

    New dude here, got a question about hubs and brakes on a 1984 Accord I just got. I bought a set of wheels in a classified ad and only measured 1 wheel trusting they would be the same. Jokes on me I guess. I got 3 on and when I got to the 4th, the bolt pattern is larger on the wheel. I measured across the wheel to the hole across and got 6 inches outside to outside of the holes. My question is what bolt pattern is that and what are my options so im not out $ on the wheels? Switch hub and brake? Drill shit/machine shit? I'm going to basterdize it however possible so let me know if you have valuable information, if not, might as well tell you mom what you know, cuz I won't listen. Thanks in advance pals.

    Wouldn't it be simpler just to trade the 4th wheel for one that has the same lug pattern as the other 3? You probably got 3 wheels with 4x100, and 1 with 4x114.3.

    152.4mm. That's the outside to outside of ur 6inches in ur lug pattern. Do some math. Measure one diameter of the lug whole and subtract that from your overall length. Boom lug pattern. But really if prob just go and trade it in or get your money back unless its super rare.

    Thanks for the info tdurr. So you're telling me that I got 1 wheel that is a 4x152.4 bolt pattern? Maybe you can clarify what you mean. Says your a 3geez vet? What's that mean? So my question is still the same to anyone who has some useful info on hubs that I can use to basterdize 1 corner of my accord. I appreciate the help so far, but I would like to know what vehicles will have the donor hub I need to match the bolt pattern of the odd wheel ( 6" outside to outside of 2 lugs across from each other on a 4 bolt wheel) and fit a 1984 accord hatchback. I know the conversion I'm attempting isnt popular so probably not many helpful ideas around here.

    I would take the oddball to a machine shop to see if they can drill it out. It would make a lot more sense than changing the car. What happens when you try to rotate your tires?
