there's a lengthy article about that on the website here somewhere. I believe it is rather expensive.Hey guys,
Just bought my 03 SSR. Newbie here and need help. Does anyone know / have information if a S10 5 lug front hub will bolt on to the SSR hub? Or how is the best way to get from stock 6 lug to 5 lug on the front with out using adapters?
Firetruck (Jarod) has torque thrust on his truck 5 lug. I believe he bought it that way don't know if he did any research on how it was converted over might want to give him a shout.I also have been trying to find a thread about switching the front from 6 lug to 5, but my searches don't show a completed conversion project.
Trying to figure out how to get some Torque Thrust style wheels to fit. 5x4.75 or 5x5
SprintRod07--I hope you don't mind me hoping in on your thread..we are in this wonderment together
Any help from you gurus would be appreciated.
That's good with Bob and that's really the best reason. Like me with my front license plate ... don't know why, just wanted to do it (redid it yesterday and got it straighter) :smile2: :smile2: :smile2: Wouldn't it be a dull SSR world if all our SSR's looked exactly alike ??? :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: t-dog :ssr
Because it's damn near impossible to buy wheels in the 6x5" bolt pattern unless you have them custom made (very expensive as Flassh already said). But it's far easier if you convert to a 5x4.75" standard GM pattern. Even going to the 6x5.5" pattern as used on the full size trucks gets you tons more options.
I doubt it has anything to do with power level going to the wheels. I think it has more to do with vehicle mass. Load on the studs is still even across all of them going with rotation, but as you turn in, the top studs are under greater tension as the vehicle's mass wants to keep going in a straight line. When's the last time you saw a modern production car with 4-lug wheels?It's hard to understand why GM requires so many vehicles to be built on 6 bolt hubs. Even my daughter's all wheel drive Traverse, which pushes about 60 hp to each wheel, runs 6 bolt hubs with an oddball bolt diameter, making it impossible to find decent aftermarket wheels.
The other extreme is the new Corvette ZR1. It's got about 350 HP going to each wheel, and still uses a 5 bolt pattern.:banghead:banghead:banghead
I'll take a peek in the daylight, but there are no spacers or adapters so I can assume the spindles were changed. Maybe on Sunday we'll get a good look at our mid Ohio gathering.

Firetruck... perhaps you could have a closer look at your front end to see what was done?
Like polishes and tires, wheels become a personal choice. When I bought the 03 Slingshot, new wheels were the first change I made. When I ordered the 06 6 speed, I ordered it with satin wheels, because I knew they were not staying on the truck.Maybe it is just me but I think you can't beat the stock chrome wheels that came on it. Just sayin.
