5 Lug conversion. Performance or Options?

  1. I've been wondering latley..I noticed alot of people convert to 5 lug. Is it beacuse of the different wheel options, or is it a preformance upgrade?
     
  2. Both for me
     
  3. 5 lug gives more clamping strength for road course and drag racing. Means your less likely to shea off a wheel stud, though I have gotten pretty wild in my Stangs and never had a problem.

    Also by switching to 5 lug the options for wheels is much much greater.
     
  4. I like the wheel optons available with 5lugs. Also, the brakes are better, espeically if you get twin piston PBR's and rear disks while your at it. :D
     
  5. I am using a SN95 rear end so I can get the 5 lug and rear discs. The big money outlay now is getting a front SN95 brake setup so I can have all 1996 SN95 brakes.
