Re: pcd 5 stud fitment - pls help
The difference between 5 x 98 and 5 x 100 is only 1mm off the inside edge of each hole!!
As Rune suggests, so long as the centreing ring is the correct size, this will ensure the wheel sits in the middle.
All you need to do is take a file or a dremmel to each hole and remove a millimetre. Also adjust the taper or cone to match.
It's such a small amount.
You will find the wheels will fit without, but when you put the nuts on, you'll put a stress on the stud as the cone centres itself in the wheel. Not good.
A minor adjustment to the wheel and you're sorted.
Of course, if funds and a local engineering shop allow, have them do it more accurately, but it'll need doing on a mill rather than using a drill.
