Re-drilling PCD

Now, this is a thing (before anyone faints) and I've already done a search and only found old (possibly no longer accurate) threads.

I'm thinking of changing PCD on a set of wheels I'm getting. By the time an adapter is fitted, I have an inch of poke I don't want, and the adapter is an inch.
So obviously getting the PCD changed is the answer.
And it's cost effective too. The 13" wheels I want are readily available in 4x100, but in my desired width and PCD they are £900+ for a set and very very rare.

So does anyone know a place that can do this? @PeteMoore I saw your name mentioned previously?

Failing that I'll have to get the help of someone with CAD to make me a template and I'll do it on my own pillar drill. I'm 90% sure I can do it right but if there is an engineering place that will do it, I'd rather do that.

Will,

I would be looking at getting the steel hubs redrilled to suit the wheels not the wheels drilled.

What is the current PCD? I can CAD you a PDF template but you would be better getting them don’t or lathe or Mill in my opinion.

I have filled wheel centres in the past, then had a machine shop put the new holes in.

Personally, if the option is there to change the PCD on the hubs instead, that's the route I would take. Certainly the route I am taking with my own car.

I would honestly rather do the wheels... the car and therefore the hubs are rare, and I don't want to modify the car, and I may want to revert to standard wheels, and or use these wheels on another car with the same pcd further down the line. For all those reasons, wheel alteration is preferable.
