2 bolt patterns

looking into buying some wheels/tires off of craigslist. I asked the guy what the bolt pattern was and he responded that it had 2 patterns. I asked what that means because i had never heard of that... this is the pic i got back.

Are these factory made like this? or did someone drill these?

this cant be safe...

I'm going to guess that they're drilled because I've never in my life seen a wheel with 2 bolt patterns. In my opinion, the bridge between the two holes would just weaken the rim and you might be able to break that bridge under enough pressure.

If they were spaced evenly like a 10 lug rim maybe... maybe...

but that close together I wouldn't even think about buying those...

I've seen universal rims with 2 sets of bolt patterns, but they were evenly spaced as mentioned above. I would NOT trust a wheel like that. It'd probably be fine in reality....but you can never be too safe.

That looks hideously dangerous, especially on a vehicle that sees a lot of stress on the wheels.

I dont think they were drilled, the sides are square as well as the nut surface which means a mill....and whos gonna pay to mill a different wheel pattern? I bet they came that way, either way i wouldnt run um
