Up to you, I would just get adapters or the correct size rims.

If your that mad on them take them to a machine shop and see if they can drill them as they have all the correct equipment.

Some brake rotors become dangerous after drilling. IMO, only factory drilled rotors are safe.

Seek professional help...seriously, don't try to make those fit without the correct lug pattern relocators...it can possibly be done, but you may have gotten a great deal on some rims that you have no use for.....it happens.

Making the wrong decision on wheel fitment can lead to terrible and permanent consequences not the least of which is the loss of a wheel and tire at highway speed.

Oh....do not drill your rotors regardless of what else you do.
