Hey guys I am sure it has been asked but I can't find specifics.
I plan on doing the 5 lug conversion swap on it. I was hoping to do the kit from late model restoration. I plan to use the drum brakes. I would love to upgrade the rear to disc but I am trying to keep this simple. I plan on doing 17x9 all the way around with a 245/45/17 in the front and a 255/45/17 in the back. I am not going for a crazy aggressive stance. Just a nice look. Will these fit? I heard something about outer bearing on front? Will they mate up to the surface of the drums? Please help me!
Thanks in advance!
I'm getting back into the hobby. I sold my 93 10 years ago and am hopefully going to pick up a clean 88 gt with 80,000 on it!

I hear what you are saying. But I do want to go through and rebuild the axle, we'll get it rebuilt! And I want to do new rotors and hub bearings so I'd rather do the 5 lug swap since it is a complete kit for a decent price. Besides I feel the cheap 4 lug is outdated. I guess you could say that about the rear drums but that will work just fine for my driving application.
Will I have to do any modifying to get the 5 lug wheels to work?
