So I was looking around for wheels for my friends fox and I came across LMR selling the 10 hole fox body wheels which are of course 4 lug, so I was looking around maybe they made a 5 lug and if so I want them for the ranger. I stumbled upon this little gem from the corral.net, in short wtf and how would they not crack or break or be just plan uninspectable

Pfffffft you guys are sissies. Look at the craftsmanship of that work, not even any wheel weights on that thing. That's just how good it was drilled! Perfectly balanced!

Not to mention it's got Mickey Thompson ET street radials on it so that car must be a beast.

I put 6.5" chrome speaker covers on the wheels on the hand truck at work... that's better craftsmanship than this 5 lug abortion.
(Actually, the "hub caps" look pretty good.)

Ok but wouldn't it be better to fill in the holes also and balance them on the back side?

You can see the knurled inserts. They are bigger than the lugnuts. What's really holding that rim to the hub?


I wouldn't say anything if it was filled and redrilled.

I can not believe WeldCraft did that to that wheel....ive seen some amazing work that they have done. But I would NOT run those on the street nor the track.
