4 lug?

Alright so I have a 74 REPU which has the 6x139.7 or 6x5.5 depending on how you look at it. I want to put 4 lug rims on my truck and was wondering if I can go around buying adapters and just physically use 4 lugs. If I were to use only 4 lugs what pattern would it leave me with? Thank you guys.

There are adapters/spacers available to convert from 6x5.5" to 4x100mm. However they are very wide and would limit your wheel selection. I've also heard they aren't friendly to your bearings.

I've been researching rims the past few days and the selection of 6x5.5" rims is appalling. There are steelies and drilled alloys but everything else would only look good on a pimped out Wrangler or Hummer.

I'd be curious if some of the experts on the forum know of a way to convert the hubs to 4 or 5 bolts without using spacers. I'd love to put a set of Watanabes on the truck but the originals and replicas simply don't come in the right sizes.

I was interested in doing this as well. Guess I need to keep searching or plan on a conversion.

For a 5 lug 5x114.3 best bet would adapt a 86-91 rx-7 subframe into the repu. Including the steering box for some rack and pinion action.

I couldn't see redrilling REPU hubs to a 4 lug would work, it would be swiss cheese. Those adapters are heavy, thick, and you'd have to run a front wheel drive offset wheel, yuk.
