with the strength of todays wheels there isn't much reason to go to 5 lug. 5 lug has a slightly more complicated pattern for tightening than 4 lug, and it takes longer to change a flat when it's pouring down rain and some drunk driver is barraling towards you. and the weight of that extra rod and nut has got to make a slight difference to unsprung weight, kinda.
Only reason I would switch is if I redid the frontend with m3 parts.
I want the one lug style a la indy cars and stuff.
