easy :D
just buy some adaptors the tyre factory sells them
www.ttf.com.au

they are about $65 each but worth it to use factory alloys rather than cheap s**t copies. :D

If you fit the adapters wont you have to fit longer studs as well? Also best to check with RTA to find out if they are legal in your state,I was certain that they are illegal but I could be wrong.
