I guess your question still stands... I haven't heard of anyone making the switch. Maybe it would be worthwhile on a higher mileage car that needs new wheel bearings anyways? They're not cheap, sold as a hub assembly that includes the ABS sensor and reluctor ring.

5x115 seems to offer a better selection of wheels to choose from.

If your going to do a hub swap, might add well do it to something common or else I'd just a waste if time. If possible to go to a 5x114.3, that's the route you want to go. 5x120 would be my second choice.

If you want a better choice of rims just look at 5x100 style rims and have them redrilled to 5x105 it's about $25 per rim

Just checked Tire Rack. According to them the Verano has a 5x115 bolt pattern, the same as the Cruze diesel.

5x120 is a BMW bolt pattern.
It's also the Camaro bolt pattern. How sick would it be to put some Camaro 20s on your car??? :D

That looks sick. Not sure but I think they have the same bolt pattern in Asia, just more manufactures willing to make wheels for the Cruze.

Mines a diesel, so I'll have some research to do. Any other idea on offset or need for spacers? Also tire size? I've got no problem with modding and custom, just seeing if there's details out there so I have the least amount of trial and error.

The thinnest aluminum adapters I've seen are 3/4" thick, or 19mm. That means you would need to use a very narrow wheel and tire, like a 7" wheel and a 205/215, or find a wheel with a huge positive offset, like 60mm.

A custom made steel adapter could be made much thinner, but I haven't seen anyone doing that yet.

Redrilling the cruze hubs isn't as easy as it sounds due to the design of the hub assembly

I tend to agree. I haven't taken mine apart yet to have a look, but the difference is 15mm on the diameter, so the wheel studs will need to move outward by 7.5mm, more than 1/4". I would be surprised if there was enough hub past the studs to allow simply drilling new holes and pressing in new studs.

I think you should take one for the team, pull your car apart and post some decent pics and measurements! :)
