DIY four to five lug conversion and wheel bearing replacement. In this video I show you how to do a 4 to 5 lug conversion on a Nissan 240sx owned by LTworldsr SaabKyle04, but this applies to any 4 lug car. You can also use this process to go from a 5 to 6 lug on a truck or even 6 to 5 lug if you want. You are basically replacing the wheel bearing and hub assembly so this lug conversion applies to many different cars and trucks.

  • Wider wheels don't give you more grip. In fact, they can reduce grip in rainy weather due to skidding effect. The only thing that matters is weight of the vehicle and coefficient of friction of your tyre.

    DataLogDataLogPrieš mėn
    • @DataLog Wow

      brandon kozielskibrandon kozielskiPrieš mėn
    • @ChrisFix Np, wider wheels are still very useful because they offer extra stability, less lateral flex and allow for more downforce or weight (due to higher surface area, there is less pressure on the tyre) and less overall wear given the same thickness because there is more surface material. But if you have a small engine, the moment of inertia (which depends on the distance of mass from the axle of the wheel and total mass of the wheel) can eat up your torque and cause worse gas mileage. An ideal wheel would aim for maximum mass reduction away from the center, and all the necessary support as close to the center as possible. Two wheels can have the same mass and completely different moment of inertia, which at speed could mean 10s of times of difference in strain and gyroscopic forces. I'm a very big fan of your videos and you help a lot, I'm not a mechanic, but I have degrees in chemistry and physics.

  • THE CHANNEL DIES IN A WEEK (allegedly) Damn. Here we are again. This morning I woke up to a dozen old copyright claims being filed. As a result, having 3+ copyright strikes has my channel marked for deletion in a week. I'm waiting on responses from folks right now to try and get this resolved, but honestly I'm less than hopeful. As if I needed more reasons to stay away from LTworlds, right? I'm going to lose everything if this channel goes away, but I'm sure as hell not going to lose this incredible audience and community I've created over these last 3 years - some of the best years of my life. I owe all of this to all of you, the folks who keep coming back just to see what I've been up to, or message me encouraging things when I'm not feeling 100%. I love you all, each and every one of you. Well, everyone but Phil. Sorry, Phil.

  • I still can't believe that spindle nut is a 30mm that literally shocked me, Anyways I seen this vid an took interest cause I bought some chrome 20's for my 04 Mustang but the bolt pattern is completely differant on the new rims so figured I'd get adapters but heard adapters are bad for torque an bust so I may do what you done to this 240. Would a 04 Mustang be similar to this like what I'm asking is will the rear of mine be as simple as this 240 ? I've worked on cars for several years but I've never swapped hubs..
