Default Put 5x120 on 5x114.3 bolt pattern?

Is there a way to fit 5x120 bolt pattern rims on my 95', SC 300? Adaptor? Spacer? Suggestions?

P.S. The rims are Enkei Aegis 18" 8.5, +12

- Beautiful Black - 1995 - SC 300 - 5x114.3 mm bolt pattern -

in reality....no

it is possible IF they are designed as such that there would be room to DRILL them to fit. But if they are a design like the Zauber Gettins, where the bolts are exposed, it would NOT be a good idea, as it would have 10 unevenly spaced holes and would be ugly as hell.

Second thing to consider is the offset. 5 x 120 sounds like BMW, and I am sure that puts it in a 20 offset range (which is too low an offset)

In other words....DON'T do it

Default 5x120 to 5x114.3

Drilling the wheels is NOT what I consider as a option. I figured, there must be easier solutions such as bolt adaptor or spacer with bolt pattern converter. Some genious must have come up with this idea and already have such product for sale. However, I've not been able to find one on the net!!!! So, HELP!
