Hey, just wondering if you can machine out the centre bore hole of a rim, to allow a Nissan X Trail or similar rim to fit onto a Falcon, or maybe machine down the hub on the disc? I've already sat an X Trail rim on the Falcon, and the offset looks alright, but the damn centre bore is too small.

Cheers, Gab

What effect would that have on structural integrity? That would be my concern...

Holden boys do this all the time to get BMW wheels to fit their car.

But yeah, the legalities of it are somewhat shadey.
