confused wheel converter thing

i really like the style of wheels that most of the utes use (couriers, hilux's, not falcons and the like).
i wish to use them on my car, but those wheels have 6 holes, and my falcon has 5 bolts (duh).
can i get a thing that bolts on to my existing discs with 6 bolts poking out instead?
will it be legal ?

Re: wheel converter thing

All wheel spacers/adaptors are illigal in all states as far as i'm aware.

If you want a set of the rims that badly i'm sure a wheel manufacturer can make you a set with a falcon stud pattern.

Just like a Tsunami.

Re: wheel converter thing

or you may be able to adapt and fir rotors from the car you want, hence giving you 6 bolts instead of 5, not that I have ever heard of this, but there will always be some one some where who has done it, or attempted it.

I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think

Re: wheel converter thing

I'm sure I've seen those white rims on the Falcon Longreach utes?
