I just noticed I have SIX lugs on my wheels. This is the first old car I've ever had with this! What the heck do I do??!! Leave them as-is and find 6-hole mags??

Wow, never saw that one comin' >:|

There are aftermarket wheels with 6 lugs. Nothing wrong with them unless you start changing front axles or rear axles to a five lug. I'm sure you want all wheels to be the same.

..... I also have seen a couple guys pull the axles and have them drilled with 5 lug bolt pattern which I personally don't like.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Thanks! I've had the truck for 3 years now, and this was the first time I even looked to see what lug pattern was on them frown
