Have a chat to John Sherman from Volskconversion on the coast , he some decent looking 15 inch wheels with 4x130 stud pattern or can give you hand converting your stud pattern into any one you like (I'm thinking of doing that and upgrading mine to disc at the back.

I have been looking at the wheel adapters 
will these go onto a wide 5 drum so that a narrow 5 stud pattern can then fit on?
I am wanting to go to discs so would it just be easier to buy blank rotors and have them drilled out to match the rims I have?

just be aware that adaptors like spacers are illegal unless engineered.
