There's no performance difference between 4-lug and 5-lug. Wheel availability increases greatly with 5x114.3 lug size, and if you're going to convert using 300ZX hubs, it makes adding the ZX brakes easy as well.

the wheel selection does increase, but a lot of companies make 4 lug drilled Z32(300zx) rotors.

But its hard to find cool 4 lug rims.
it's not hard... it's expensive. most companies will custom drill a wheel to 4 lug if you want - it will just cost more and take longer

Well there lots of 4 lug wheels out there. There just not the right offset of size that most of us are looking for. As in power wise i have never seen a 4 lug snap all the studs so there perrty strong.

if u really look around you would be surprised. look through rbmotoring.com's used rims gallery. hell, u can get fn01r-c's in 17X9 +20 from splparts.com. also check ebay.

while you may never need the 5 lug...being able to select the proper rim for your application AND the availability for cheap brake upgrades is well worth it. End of discussion.

o boy he said 'end of discussion'. ur right about the rims, but not about the brakes. if by cheap brake upgrades you mean z32 brakes or just better 240sx rotors, its pretty easy to look around and find those rotors in 4 lug. and if u cant find them, buy 5 lug rotors, and find a brake shop and get them redrilled for 4 lug. if ur on a budget, dont feel like u MUST have 5 lug. just getting 5 lug to have 5 lug is a stupid waste of money.
