    I just got my "new" LBP rallye rims and one of the rims has all five lug holes wallowed out to about 5/8". They will be going on 1/2" studs. Can I use this wheel on a daily driver?

    considering those wheels are re-popped and not really all that rare......

    I would make that one into a garden hose reel and use a better one on the car

    an accident will cost far more than a new wheel or even a set of new wheels

    The small holes are for the cap screws. Yes the wheel is junk. Do yourself and the family in the car coming at you a favor.

    You have nothing to lose.

    Drill the cap screws out to 9/16 and use washers on the old lug holes to hold on the cap.

    Please Please do not use those
    They are not safe to use on a car.....Your garden hose sure.

    I was not referring to the cap screw holes, I was making a joke about how badly those holes were wobbled out...making them look like the unilug holes that are oblong and fit two patterns
