    Hi guys,

    Currently restoring a 203 Sedan, wanting to convert rears to 5 lug. Preferably that similar to a EH Holden, being, 5/4.25".

    Tried a few places around here in Sydney but no one seemed too keen on the job. Perhaps too much of a headache because the hubs are recessed. Photos are attached. Can anyone please recommend a specialist willing to take on the job or the best way around it?

    Any advice appreciated,

    Thanks,

    Most people would choose to modify the wheels rather than the hubs.

    I assume you want to modify the hubs, so you have a wider choice of wheels available to fit to the vehicle ?

    Any decent wheel works can remove the centers from your existing wheels, machine if necessary, and then fit them to new rims.

    This will end up being less fuss and less expense that modifying the 203 hubs. If the hubs are modified, you will probably need an engineer's report afterwards to certify them roadworthy and compliant with ADRs.

    Thanks for the feedback Rob!

    Was mainly looking to change hubs as easier to source rims and tyres. I was looking at a deep dish 1950s slick look as per picture rather than the Peugeot steelies which protrude. I also think it would be cheaper and easier to obtain tubeless generic tyres opposed to whats existing. Was doing some research and original tyres are 300 a pop.

    Why not go for the 5 stud that is found on utes and wagons? Same stud pattern as Ford F100, some Jeeps as well as Suzuki and Daihatsu small 4x4s. Outer part of the rear axles should just bolt onto the diff but I have had no actual experience.

    I really doubt that. The Ute and Wagon diffs resemble parts from a truck.

    And 203/ 403 wagon diffs are not easy to come by.
