Default Change lug pattern?

Ive got a 1993 continental, and it has the worst lug pattern, 5x108. I cannot find ANY wheels, that i would even consider putting on my car. Can you, and how hard is it to switch all the shit over and get a different lug pattern? Maybe not even worth it since its fwd and has a positive offset anyways, i dont know. Hard work to change out the hubs and stuff? What all has to be done to the front end since its fwd? And the rear?

there are a few companies that make what are basically spacers that bolt up but have new studs on them with a new pattern. they are NOT cheap though. at least not cheap enough to mess with

You could run adapters, but they get expensive and I'm a little iffy about their safety.

Some I got with a quick search that look decent, IMO.

Ya im hating the fwd, not a fan of it at all. My OEM wheels are fine, theyre aluminum and in great shape, i just want a different look to it.

Also, i am not going to run those spacers, any wheel other than a fwd offset wheel will stick out as is, let alone adding another spacer to it. I already got pulled over for having some wheels on that stuck out, they were deep dish with reverse offset im pretty sure. They stuck out far and i had to take them off.

I almost want to get rid of the car and get something else. But i dont think i could get myself to do it.. I dono why. I like the car and everything, i hate getting rid of my stuff but i wont get another car unless i can sell this one.. So i most likely wont get anything else.

Just keep looking there are wheels out there for your bolt pattern.

What style are you looking for?

It took me a while but I found wheels I like for my car and it is 5x108 also.

Well im actually wanting to put some wire wheels on it. I had a set of 15" bolt on wire wheels, cheap ones and not the best looking, but it was alright, they were deep dish, reverse offset so stuck out ALOT.. I cant find the adapters for the wire wheels with the 5x108 pattern. And i cant go new, i dont have that money to spend. I cant even find new ones anyways..

If not wire wheels, im not sure. I guess i would want some somewhat bigger rims, dono what would look good on my car.
