Very much possible. You can either make spacers which change PCD, like the pic below, or you can seal the holes, and insert new lugs at the appropriate places. Or you could just change the hubs.

Wonderful thread. Have learnt a lot from it. One of the measurements for alloys mentioned on the net is backspacing. What does it mean & how does one find out if it is the correct one for a particular vehicle? What should this be for the Santro, for example?
Thanks in advance,

Well, when I tried finding out a few months ago, I was given answers that changing wheel PCD is not possible and that even if it was possible it would be too expensive.

The using spacers to change PCD as shown in the above pic is a not so good idea as it works more like a horizontal spacer and the wheels are out of the wheels arches.

What method is this guy going to use who told you that he can change the PCD and what are the costs involved?

Default Re: How can alloys wheels have multi-PCD??

I have an all chrome beautiful alloy that I used on my Duster. It is a
5 x 100 pcd alloy.

Can I use it for a car with 5 x 114.3 pcd. I have taken it to a wheel alignment center and they fitted it perfectly. I have driven over 100 and has not come across and wobbling or shuddering on steering.

I would greatly appreciate the experts comments on this.
