redrilling rims to fit?
 
ok so I found some rims I like but the off set I'm looking for doesn't come for 5/120 bolt pattern, but dose come in. 5/112 pattern, they said they can redrill and sleeve to a 5/120 pattern, I want to know if this is ok, or is it a bad idea , never heard of this being done

This is a pretty common procedure in the wheel customization world. What they will be doing is machining the lug holes larger and pressing in steel lug seats to the proper bolt pattern. While we don't really recommend things like this, I have seen it done countless times and if it's done properly, I don't think you'll have any issues. I would recommend finding wheels in the correct center bore and bolt pattern if possible though.

Or you could just get adapters...

For tires, we generally recommend a 225/35/19 or 235/35/19 front, and a 255/30/19 rear. If you're lowered that much you may get some rubbing though.
