Sorry for the dumb question but I was wondering if I could replace my 4 lug drum on my '73 with 5 lug drums??

I like the 5 lug wheels better but heard too many horror stories about adapters.

Yes they will. You need front drums off of a 66 or 67 (as long as you dont have a super beetle). And you can use either thing (type 181) rear drums that are a direct blot on, or you can use earlt beetle drums but you have to use a spacer between the drum and nut.

a touch off subject, but related.....always wondered if anybody hase ever tried utilizing 71 and later bus drums,disc on a type 1? Not that populr of a bolt pattern, unless you want to use Mercedes or some ford wheels but would give you disc, power even!
