Can I convert 4 lug to 5 lug?

Okay, my friend and I thought of giving a friend some rims for a birthday present. But the thing is that he has a 4 lug 6th gen Accord Sedan LX... we planned to give him some TSX rims, but since that is a 5 lug rim, is there a way to change a 4 lug into a 5 lug so that the car can fit the rims? How much would the conversion be? Thanks.

yes, your best bet is to hit up your local junk yards, i'd say prob $300- $500

you actually have to replace the hub itself...along with rotors and some other little goodies...think there's a conversion kit out there...but as stated above junk yard would be cheapest way to go...

I guess the real cheap way is to find 4 lug replicas of TSX rims... something that looks like it. Any of you guys have any ideas?

there are conversions out there but they are pricey and hard to find. I also know that there is an increase in width to the whole asembly which basically sets the wheel farther away from the wheel well. Basically the wheel might stick out a bit which might look kinda stupid on an accord. Try to find a 4 lug pattern rim, it'll save you a whole lot of grief. By the way thats really nice of you!
