310 Front Alcoa Wheels

I just installed a set of Alcoa wheels on my 1982 310 with the Isuzu Diesel. The front hubs only have 5 studs instead of 10 like on the rear. The wheels came with the center caps and the chrome nut covers. What should I do about the missing studs? Looks a little funny with 5 open holes.

Thanks

The fronts are 5 bolt, the rears are 10 bolt; you ordered the wrong wheels.

310 Wheels

I purchased them thru Southwest Wheel.

Southwest Wheel Company Steel and Aluminum Truck Wheels

I told them it was for and Airstream they never mentioned 5 bolt vs 10 bolt. I didn't think Alcoa made a 5 bolt wheel. I've got an idea how to fix it.

The trim plate covers the other five holes.

If the 10 bolt fit on the 5 bolt, why change...?...the expense isn't worth it...it's just another 5 holes(X2) to put money into, and I'd bet you could rig fake bolt-hole covers cheaper than new rims...mike

I did not pay too much attention when I took the pic, but the trim ring looked
factory.Wonder if it's something Alcoa makes?

I'd call them as the web site is a little confusing. I think it was less than 2K with everything including shipping.
