Can I? and if so, How do I? Go from the Splined hub to a 4 or 5 lug wheel.
Would prefer a 5 lug, i would like to put some 5 spokes w/ low profile tires on it.

My friend used mid 90s 300zx hubs with 67 BJ8 rotors up front on his 67 BJ8 and that would get you 5 lug ford, I believe he just went to the bearing store and changed one bearing and race out

I think i'm gonna go with Mustang II front end, seems economical, more up to date and i would like to believe that the steering and suspension would be 1000% better.


any info... pro's/con's?
