Rims bolt pattern 5x114.3 to 5x120


I tried searching forums about this but cannot get any insight. Well, basically I brought a set of csl2 rennen rims with bolt pattern 5x114.3. I got them for a really good price, $600 with semi-new tires. However, my M3 bolt pattern is 5x120 so therefore I decided to get them redrill and not the adaptor route. I took it to a rim shop but I'm not sure if they did a secure job. They made an oval shape that fits the bolt pattern but their is no steel insert. The hubcentric is only off by 1mm so the rims are holding nice. But my question is....without the steel insert in the rim will it damage my alloy? Also, is this something I should be worried about in the future. So far I drove the car over 100mph without any problems or shaking. Thanks

Are these wheels really worth the risk to your car, yourself and others well being? Regardless of what anyone else tells you, you have weakened these wheels. Sure you may drive on them for a long time with no problems but I wouldn't chance it. There are plenty of great wheels out there made for our cars find a set and ditch these ASAP.
