Well I have 4 lug. Would do 5 lug conversion but already invested money into 4 lug wheels and I have a buddy that has 4 lug wheels that runs low 11s for last 5 years and never had an issue with the lugs

Re: 4 lug rearend vs 5 lugs

The 5-lug is "better" in a couple of aspects.

1. You get a much wider selection of wheels with the 5-lug pattern. (I think this is probably the number 1 reason most people do it.)

2. For higher HP cars you might want them, as they provide more strength and safety.

However there are lots of 4-lug cars out there that get by just fine with no issues.
I will probably consider changing mine over once I get into the 500+ HP range and start launching the car with slicks on it.
