LUG/BOLT Pattern

Car: 1994 Acura Integra LS hatchback 1.8LT 5 Speed.

I have a set of wheels that I received from a friend. The Lug pattern is different then that of my car, 3/4 holes match accept for one that is completely off. I realize that means the pattern is not meant for my car. I've talked to a couple people that have said I can take it to a place to get a new hole drilled to fit my pattern. how safe is this if its professionally done? or is this even practiced. the wheel holes themselves are covered by a chrome plate that hides the bolts.

p.s. if a new hole was made it would'nt be near any of the existing holes.

I recall a similar question being asked a few months ago. As I recall, the bottom line is to sell the rims to someone who has the right car, take the money plus some of your own and buy proper rims for your car. There is no safe mod for your mismatch.

Dont do it. Its not safe, as previously mentioned. Besides, the wheels you bought may also have a different off-set and may rub against the fender or hub. Not worth it IMO.
