Hub Conversion

Has anyone done this? I have some wheels from an F series vehicle that would probably fit the G30 without difficulty with a 5x120 to 5x112 conversion. Example would be something like this:
https://www.amazon.com/Centric-Conve.../dp/B07KFNF3NQ

(no I'm not looking to put a VW wheel on my car, that's just what the seller titled it)


I'm just a bit apprehensive about the whole concept of this. Has anyone done it? How has it affected the ride, any stability issues?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

If the wheels fitted the f10, it might be too aggressive to fit this to the car, it's like a 25mm spacer.

It's from the F80 - 641M 19" wheels.

They're 19x8.5 ET27 and 19x9 ET29, so with 25mm spacers, that's ET2 and ET4. Way too aggressive.

And don't you need a 5x112 to 5x120 conversation??

Yeah, whichever it is.

Onto plan B- sell; the 641s and get something else!

Thanks for the insight.
