He said in one of his first posts that prices on available five lug wheels in the sizes/ widths he needs are cheaper than trying to find the same in a four lug.

I'm sure most do. 5 lug rims are a dime a dozen unlike 4 lug. So guys who like to wheel whore do it so they have a winder selection. But others like clueless do it for track reasons.

17x8 4x100 are not easy to find cheap on craigslist's (and offsets that are not 20 - 0)

17x8 5x114.3 are easy to find for around $300-400 on craiglist's

Just pick up my 3rd set now for the racecar, and still under $1000 in wheels

As I have said before the for braking power the 4lug way is cheaper.

When I was looking for wheels I did the math it was going to be around $2500 for 4 sets of wheels, since I could not find any used ones cheap. There were a few for $1k a set.

For 5 lug and wheels I am at around $1300 now, 3 set. Last nigh I just pick up some stock wheels with tires for $50 for trailering wheels. I just need one more set and I will be happy.

When we race we travel with 1set of rains, 2sets of dries and the trailing tire on the car. The 4th set is nice to have for if we find a problem with any of the wheels.

This is not a street car so my thinking is different than a lot of people.

No I don't think you would. I am guessing you could use the socket trick on that. What I mean is knock it out with a slightly smaller socket. Really I bet the press is the best way to go.
