Changing the wheel PCD
Does anyone know whether the wheel PCD can be changed?
For eg: Changing the PCD from 4x108 to 4x100.
I read online that there were PCD changing adaptors, but installing these also worked as horizontal spacers.
Is there any other solution to changing PCD, like drilling new holes on the hub?

You're right, the way to do it is by using an adapter...it is also a spacer. spacers as such are common. hub adapters are somewhat too, but used only on those cars on which finding alloys is an issue.
The adapters are said to transmit all shock to the hub, and it's known to bend the lugs. this is obviously an issue when using such contraptions on our "beautiful" and "smooth" roads...
My advice would be to stay away, no matter how attractive those alloys look!!!

In additon to the obvious "benefits" as stated above by DocG. One is also adding weight to the car, which is in no way going to be beneficial. Spacers if not precision built can result in a wobbly drive. Like Noddy's car !!!
