Can you make it fit? Yes

Is it the correct size? No

Is it smart? Not in my opinion

No, the correct bolt pattern is 5 x 115.

Edit: i knew i'd be beaten to it.

Proof that 5x114.3 is a bad idea....

ASA's ended up being the wrong bolt pattern. When I bought 'em Sept 08 they were listed as 5x115. I never gave it a second thought when I installed 'em. Then I started to break wheel studs. One here and there and I thought it was an overzealous tech from the previous owner stretching 'em and I'm breaking them.

Then the replacement studs started to break, then I inspected the wheels to find out they were 5x114.3. I'm not 100% sure if it was the bolt pattern or perhaps a wheel made out of spec - but I had four broken wheel studs at one time! Oddly enought, it never happened on the front wheels, only the rear. After I confirmed it was the wheels breaking s**t - they came off.

It wasn't pretty

four broke


and most recently three broke

It's like a size 10 foot ina 9 shoe. You can make it work but eventually you'll have issues.
